London - The South African men's hockey team beat Scotland 3-0 at London's national hockey stadium Sunday to earn the Investec Cup bronze medal.

South African captain Austin Smith netted penalty corners in the 45th and 64th minutes, while teenager Dan Sibbald complemented one of a host of inventive attacking moves with a well-taken goal in the 62nd minute.

South Africa could have wrapped up the bronze medal with a number of chances in the first half, but Scotland goalkeeper Gavin Somerville was in good form to keep his side in the game.

The South African men meet Wales in unofficial Test matches at England's training headquarters, Bisham Abbey, on Monday and Tuesday before leaving for Glasgow on Thursday, ahead of an unofficial Test match against Canada next Saturday.
