Ireland Hockey Team Continues Olympic Quest Today

Ireland’s women continue their Olympic quest this morning. They take on the USA in the first of the fifth-to-eighth place playoffs in Valencia. Darren Smith’s charges will be hoping for a repeat of Tuesday’s result, which saw them beat the US 2-0. That game is underway at 10.30, and will be followed by the other playoff meeting of Spain and South Africa. The semi finals there see Ireland’s conquerors on Thursday China take on Argentina while Great Britain face Germany.
