GB experienced challenges in their match with the adept German team

In the FIH Pro League mini-tournament hosted in London, Great Britain’s women faced their second defeat in four days, losing 4-1 to Germany on the event’s concluding day.

The British side got off to a disappointing start, as they quickly conceded goals to Hanna Granitzki and Jette Fleschutz within the initial six minutes.

A resurgence was seen in the second quarter when Ellie Rayer managed to narrow the deficit, showing a more spirited performance from the British side.

However, the German lead was extended in the third quarter by Viktoria Huse, with Pauline Heinz scoring a fourth goal towards the end.

Hoping to settle scores after a 2-0 defeat in their previous encounter on Friday, GB aimed for victory. Their efforts were rejuvenated after their 4-2 win against the USA on Sunday.

Nevertheless, they were set on a challenging path as Germany found an opening and Granitzki managed to score in the very first minute. The situation further deteriorated when Fleschutz skillfully outmaneuvered the British defense and netted a goal past Miriam Pritchard in the sixth minute.

GB found a glimmer of hope when Rayer sprinted from midfield, with her reverse stick shot successfully finding the net’s corner. A potential equalizer could have followed shortly after, but Sarah Robertson’s attempt was brilliantly defended by Noelle Rother.

Despite a half-time breather, Germany continued their onslaught in the third quarter. Huse’s successful penalty corner shot added another goal to their tally. Later, despite GB’s strategic decision to replace Pritchard in hopes of turning the tide, Heinz sealed the game with a final strike.

With their hopes for advancing to the knock-out stage extinguished, GB is set to wrap up their Pro League campaign against the USA in Antwerp this Wednesday.

Defensively, GB’s got work to do. Conceding in the first minute? C’mon, that’s just basic stuff, guys.

Why did they take Pritchard off? She might have stopped that fourth one. Bad call in my opinion… :/
