Coetzee sets goal world record

2011-06-21 15:36

Dublin - Bloemfontein-born Pietie Coetzee broke the world record of 220 Test match goals with a stunning first half hat-trick as the South Africa women’s hockey team led the USA 3-2 at half-time in their final Pool A match at the Champions Challenge tournament in Dublin on Tuesday.

Two classic Coetzee penalty corner drag-flicks were followed by a sizzling action goal that crashed into the backboard 12 minutes from the half-time whistle.

SA need just one point to win Pool A.

    Fantastic- Well done Girl!!!! Especially since she had a break from international hockey for a few years. Shows what SA hockey players can do when they are given a better set up in terms of coaching, international exposure, etc. as has been the case recently. We could be world champs at more than just rugby ( a sport played by fewr countries than hockey)
