Johannesburg - Two first half goals saw the South African women's hockey team to a 2-0 victory over the Ukraine, in the Olympic Qualifier Tournament on Sunday.

The win saw SA well on course for next Saturday’s final, as they beat Poland 2-1 on Saturday.

The scoring was opened in the 15th minute when world record goalscorer Pietie Coetzee, showed good anticipation.

Coetzee intercepted a Ukraine pass across the goalmouth with a sliding deflection into the back of the net. It was her 233rd goal for the national team.

Six minutes from half-time South Africa went 2-0 up when a pass from left half Lisa Deetlefs found striker Dirkie Chamberlain, as she brushed off Ukraine defenders before popping the ball over the goalline.
