Hello and welcome to the live scores and updates of the FIH Series Final finale between India and South Africa. Our correspondent Samarendranath Soory is at the Kalinga Stadium, where the match begins at 7:15 PM IST. This is Manasi Pathak, and I will be delivering live text commentary for this clash. Stay tuned!


With the win, India clinches the gold medal in the FIH Series Finals in Bhubaneswar.

FULL TIME: INDIA 5-1 SOUTH AFRICA. India wins the FIH Series Finals in Bhubaneswar by beating South Africa. Goals from Varun Kumar (2), Harmanpreet Singh (2) and Vivek Prasad witnessed.

57′ PC for South Africa. Austin Smith’s dragflick was tame and lacked speed in it as Surender Kumar easily clears the attempt.

53′ GOAL! INDIA 5-1 SOUTH AFRICA. Richard Pautz gets his name on the scoresheet as South Africa converts from its second penalty corner. This is only the fourth goal India has conceded in the tournament.

50′ GOAL! INDIA 5-0 SOUTH AFRICA. Varun Kumar adds his second of the night, as India converts from a penalty corner. South African players claim a dangerous ball as Spooner is hit on the shoulder from Varun Kumar’s dragflick but the umpire waits for the video umpire’s call and declares it as a clean hit. India is finally coming to grips with executing variations in the penalty corners.


46′ The final quarter is underway. India enjoying a comfortable four-goal lead.

– India managed to keep a tight grip on the match, despite South Africa creating some really good chances. Gurjant and Gursahibjit need to shake off their markers quickly to create more chances

– End of Q3 –

44′ Akashdeep slots the ball in from the rebound off the goalkeeper but the umpire calls it off owing to a foul which was committed earlier.

43′ MISSED! Mandeep Singh fails to provide the final touch to the ball which was sent in from the corner. The player hasn’t had a match to remember.

41′ PC for India as Vivek Prasad is brought down by Smith Austin. Nothing comes off it as South Africa goalkeeper blocks it through his pads.


37′ Simranjeet Singh makes up for his missed chance in the second quarter with a smart backpass for Vivek Prasad to tap in from point blank. The Kalinga Stadium has turned up the volume on its “Indiaaaa, India!” chorus.

36′ GOAL! INDIA 4-0 SOUTH AFRICA. Vivek Prasad adds the fourth goal as he taps the ball in, after Simranjeet Singh kept the ball rolling in the inner circle.

34′ The Japanese team can be seen in attendance at the Kalinga Stadium. Japan won the bronze medal today by beating USA in the playoff decider for the third spot.

32′ OVER! South Africa attacks from the right channel before Richard Pautz is fed a ball right in front of goal. He however sends it over the goal.

31′ The third quarter is underway. India will look to extend its lead. The win will help it improve its world ranking.

“India has taken off its foot off the pedal in the second quarter after a breathtaking first quarter. South Africa has been unable to create much apart from two shots on the goal but India custodian Krishan Pathak was ready for it,” says Samarendranath Soory, our hockey correspondent, from Odisha.

HALF TIME: INDIA 3-0 SOUTH AFRICA – Varun Kumar (2′), Harmanpreet Singh (11′, 25′).

30′ Off goes the hooter and the teams leave the field at the end of second quarter. India leads by three goals, thanks to Varun Kumar, and Harmanpreet Singh (2).

29′ From the right channel, Richard Pautz sends a ball diagonally for Nicholas Spooner on the opposite channel. Spooner stretches as much as he can, but fails to connect. Unlucky!

25′  GOAL! INDIA 3-0 SOUTH AFRICA. Penalty stroke for India as Harmanpreet Singh adds his second of the night. A stick check by South Africa inside the circle forces the umpire to award a penalty stroke to India Harmanpreet makes no mistake from the spot as he goes for bottom right corner and finishes off in style. India up by three now!

24′ Gurjant Singh, who makes an appearance today in place of the injured Sumit, gets the green card, and India is down to ten men. This is the first time any Indian player has been carded in this tournament.

18′ Chance for Simranjit Singh to penetrate the inner circle but South Africa’s Dlungwana Tyson clears the danger.

16′ The second quarter is underway. In case you have joined now, India is leading thanks to goals from Varun Kumar and Harmanpreet Singh.

– “This has been the strongest start to a match India has had in the tournament. The energetic midfield has been the difference which has never allowed South Africa to settle down,” comments our reporter Samarendranath from Odisha.

-End of Q1-

12′ The host has not put a foot wrong in the final. The ball retention from India so far has been excellent, particularly Vivek Prasad has been the lynchpin in the midfield.

11′ GOAL! INDIA 2-0 SOUTH AFRICA. Harmanpreet Singh adds the second. Mandeep Singh wins the PC for India and from it, Ramandeep Singh injects the ball in. A clever, confident Harmanpreet Singh keeps his flick high, as he sees the South African goalkeeper going low. Harmanpreet gets the better of the goalkeeper, and India doubles its lead.

9′ Ouch! Matthew de Sousa is unlucky to loose his footing after what looked like South Africa’s first meaningful attack down the left flank.

7′ Brilliant start by the host as it seems that it had reserved its best for the final. Varun Kumar’s penalty corner did not have much variation in it but was a result of smart placement into the bottom right corner. The Indian players look hungry as the high press has pushed South Africa on the back-foot, says our correspondent Samarendranath. from the Kalinga Stadium.

5′ Ramandeep Singh attacks from the right channel, as he sprints his way through. He sends in a cross for Akashdeep Singh in front of goal, but Akashdeep sends it wide of the target.

2′ GOAL! INDIA 1-0 SOUTH AFRICA. Varun Kumar finds the net as Ramandeep Singh injects the ball in from a penalty corner. Nilkanta Sharma halts the ball for Varun, who aims for the bottom left corner, and succeeds at doing so. India leads!

2′ Manpreet Singh shoots from a long range but misses the mark. He calls for a PC, but the umpire is not impressed.

1′ PUSHBACK! Here we go, folks.

– The Kalinga Stadium is filled to the brim. Despite securing a spot for the Olympic Qualifiers, world no. 5 India needs to win this match for the FIH World Rankings points which will help in playing the qualifiers at home.

– Manpreet Singh leads the Indian team out, while Tim Drummon guides his South African side out. The national anthems will follow now.

– NOTE: Sumit has been ruled out of today’s fixture owing to a fracture on his right hand. Gurjant Singh replaces Sumit in midfield.

– Our correspondent Samarendranath Soory brings us the line-up for today. Watch out for team news.

Prior to attending their graduation rehearsal, a large group of student-athletes gathered inside Greenwich High School’s gymnasium for a picture perfect moment.

Classes have long been over and graduation is Monday at Greenwich High, but the Cardinals’ soon-to-be collegiate athletes paid a welcome visit to the school on Friday for a special occasion.

It was was group photo day for each Greenwich student-athlete that will continue their respective athletic careers at the collegiate level. Paige Finneran, Greenwich’s Female Athlete for the 2018-2019 school year, was one of numerous Cardinals college-bound athletes that attended the photo shoot. A three-sport star, Finneran served as one of the captains of the Cardinals’ field hockey, ice hockey and lacrosse teams, earning All-FCIAC Team honors in each sport.

“Playing hockey here was one of my highlights,” said Finneran, who will play lacrosse at Vanderbilt University. “Winning two FCIAC championships was awesome.”

Finneran especially enjoyed her sports experience at GHS.

“I learned a lot, had great teammates and I got used to using time management as best as I could, which will help me in college. I loved all three sports equally, it’s kind of sad to have to drop two of them in college. But I had a great time and I definitely have a love of lacrosse.”

Joining Finneran at Friday’s photo ceremony were her ice hockey and lacrosse teammates Grace Fahey and Jennifer Kelly. Lacrosse teammates Sloane Loveless and Olivia Caan were also present.

Fahey will continue her lacrosse career at Davidison College, while Kelly will bring her lacrosse skills to Union College. Kelly competed on the field hockey, ice hockey and lacrosse teams at GHS.

“All three sports are different, but they complement each other and we are going to miss them a lot,” said Kelly, also an All-FCIAC Team athlete. “We have some good memories, especially getting our first banners in ice hockey.”

Said Fahey, who earned All-FCIAC honors as well: “We were all so close on every team, that’s what we’re going to leave from high school. Hopefully, when we come back we will be able to hang out with our former teammates. It went by so fast, I can’t believe we’re graduating.”

Jack Feda, an all-conference football and lacrosse player, was chosen as Greenwich’s Male Athlete of the Year.

Standout golfers Jackson Fretty and Ben Ropiak were on hand Friday. The All-FCIAC selections helped lead Greenwich to its second straight state title and third consecutive FCIAC championship.

Fretty will soon join the Princeton golf squad.

“I had a chance to meet the guys in March, they have a great community there,” Fretty said. “They won the Ivy League this year, which is awesome.”

A member of the Cardinals’ golf team for four successful seasons, Fretty relished his role on the squad.

“It was such a huge part of my high school life,” he said. “Every winter I would be antsy and ready to go in the spring. It was a fun time and it’s sad that it’s over.”

Ropiak will take his golf clubs to Gettysburg College.

“I am very excited about having the opportunity to be on the golf team at Gettysburg, they are trending in the right direction, winning their conference last year,” Ropiak said. “Playing for Greenwich was an amazing experience. Winning states two years in a row is an incredible validation of all the work we put in.”

Lance Large, a member of the Cardinals’ Class LL championship team this past fall, will take his wide receiver talents to John’s Hopkins University.

“It’s surreal that it’s over and we are graduating, it hasn’t sunk in yet,” Large said. “I am preparing for college right now, getting ready for the season.”

Jordan Numme is set to compete on the track and field team at Boston College, after being one of Greenwich’s most consistent performers.

“It was nice to have a fun four years at Greenwich and I’m excited to start a new chapter,” said Numme, who also played soccer at GHS. “It was really exciting, because I never did track before high school and the only reason I got into it was because my guidance counselor was a coach. To have something unexpected turn into something so special, helping me to go to my dream school is very exciting.”

Here are the Greenwich High School athletes who will compete in their respective sports at the collegiate level. The list of athletes was provided by Greenwich High School.

Jacob Belmont, Salve Regina, football; Owen Bianchi, John’s Hopkins, track; Allison Brea, Tufts, swimming; Aidan Brock, National University of Ireland, Galway, cross country, track and field; Zoe Cass, Washington and Lee, riding; Olivia Caan, John’s Hopkins lacrosse; Ian Colalucci, NYU, baseball; Emilio Camou, Union College, football; Samantha Chabot, John’s Hopkins, field hockey; Tysen Comizio, University of Pennsylvania, football; Nolan Connerty, Dickinson College, football; Hunter Cusimano, Villanova football; Nicolas de la Sierra, Bucknell University, water polo; Timothy D’Agostino, Fordham University, water polo; Eleanor Dabney, Naval Academy, crew; Charlie Ducret, Trinity College, football and track and field; Grace Fahey, Davidson College, lacrosse; Jack Feda, Bucknell, lacrosse; Paige Finneran, Vanderbilt, lacrosse; Jackson Fretty, Princeton, golf; Charles Graves, St. Lawrence, lacrosse; Summit Gillespie, Temple, crew; Olivia Hoekman, Dickinson, lacrosse; Jennifer Kelly, Union, lacrosse; Lucy Koven, Princeton, crew; Kyle Laufenberg, Iona College, water polo; Lance Large, John’s Hopkins, football; Katie Large, University of Chicago, lacrosse; Sloane Loveless, Cornell, lacrosse; Barbara Malone, St. Andrew’s, Scotland, water polo; Daniel McDermott, Brown University, water polo; Rodane McKenzie, Richmond — The American International University in London, soccer; Zoe Metalios, Columbia, field hockey; Anna Meurer, MIT crew; Gavin Muir, Dartmouth, football; Madeline Muldoon, University of Pennsylvania, swimming and diving; Natasha Neitzell, Princeton, crew; Jordan Numme, Boston College, track and field; Sean Pratley, St. Lawrence, baseball; Ryan Raybuck, Saint Anselm College, football; Ben Ropiak, Gettysburg, golf; Paige Sangston, Bard, soccer; Peter Scott, MIT, crew; Bridget Semenuk, University of Texas, swimming; Michael Steinthal, Yale, crew; Stephan Todorovic, Boston College, swimming; Toby Turnbull, Stonehill College, football; Shiv Vaid, Oberlin, lacrosse; Lara Varma, Drexel, squash; Emily Warner, Claremont McKenna College, swimming; Caroline Webb, UConn, cross country, track and field; Isabel Wilkowski, Brown, rowing; Christopher Wint, Castleton University, football.

  • Most ACC Women’s Fall Sports Coverage Ever
  • Dedicated Sports Windows
  • “Keeper Cam” to Enhance Viewing Experience

ACC Network (ACCN) the new, 24/7 national platform launching on August 22, 2019, will elevate the ACC’s field hockey, women’s soccer and volleyball programs with unprecedented national television coverage this fall.

ACCN will exclusively televise 62 field hockey, women’s soccer and volleyball games in its debut year – representing a 90 percent increase in the number of ACC women’s events available on an ESPN linear network over last year and the most live, national coverage of ACC women’s fall sports ever.

The 62 regular season and tournament games on ACCN:

  • 30 women’s soccer games
  • 20 volleyball games
  • 12 field hockey games

Reigning NCAA Champion Florida State will open ACCN’s women’s soccer slate on Sunday, Aug. 25, as the Seminoles host Wisconsin, marking the first exclusive live event on the network, while NCAA Field Hockey Champion North Carolina hosts Penn on Sunday, Sept. 8, as part of a doubleheader to kickoff ACCN field hockey coverage. Wake Forest will play Princeton earlier that day in Chapel Hill, N.C., at 10:30 a.m., on ACCN. ACCN’s volleyball opener features Notre Dame hosting Valparaiso on Sunday, Sept. 4 at 7 p.m.

“ACC Network will bring unprecedented coverage of our women’s programs this fall, which is one of the goals and benefits of launching ACCN,” said ACC Commissioner John Swofford. “Collectively, our women’s teams are arguably the best in the country and ACC Network will allow our fans across the country the opportunity to showcase these incredible programs and student-athletes.”

“As we roll out the women’s sports programming fall schedule for ACCN, we’re thrilled to showcase all ACC programs including the reigning NCAA champions in women’s soccer and field hockey. Women’s sports exposure is a priority for the conference, and ACCN will elevate access to them by providing unprecedented national coverage throughout the regular season as well as conference championships,” said Stacie McCollum, ESPN senior director of programming and acquisitions.

Dedicated Windows

Volleyball and women’s soccer will each have a dedicated night of live programming each week with volleyball airing on Wednesdays, and women’s soccer Thursdays throughout the regular season, with additional matches on Sundays. ACC field hockey games will be showcased on Fridays and Sundays throughout the fall. ACCN will also televise the preliminary rounds and final of the ACC Field Hockey Championship, as well as the quarterfinals and semifinals of the ACC Women’s Soccer Championship.

Keeper Cam Technology

Technology and innovation will be at the forefront of ACCN’s coverage of women’s soccer as telecasts will feature ESPN’s exclusive “Keeper Cam” goal post camera system currently used on ESPN’s Major League Soccer productions. The technology utilizes cameras mounted inside the goal posts at both the four-inch and two-and one-half inch heights to provide unique views of the area in front of the goal, as well as straight down the goal line. The ACC will be the first and only collegiate conference to deploy the camera system.

“ACC women’s soccer has consistently been a national powerhouse, and has been the home for so many that have competed at the highest levels for club and country,” said Amy Rosenfeld, ACCN senior coordinating producer. “This legacy of great soccer deserves the best technology we can offer. We are so excited to debut “Keeper Cam” on women’s soccer coverage for the first time in history, exclusively on ACCN.”

Hello and welcome to the live updates of India vs Japan at Bhubaneshwar. The Indians have been top dollar in the three games they played. Russia and Uzbekistan were taken to the cleaners; Indians scored 10 in both games. That the Indian forwards have been magnificent bodes well for the team. A youngster like Gursahibjit Singh has seamlessly slotted into the setup and the experienced lot: skipper Manpreet Singh, Ramandeep Singh, Manpreet Singh and Akashdeep Singh have been at their best.

Graham Reid, though, faces his first big test after taking over the reins from Harendra Singh. Japan are an energetic team who can cause problems to the Indian defence. Hope we have a good game in store.

“I’ve had three years under some fantastic leaders before me,” Lawler said. “I was able to see different styles of leadership. … And I was able to kind of find not only what I take to, but different styles that other people take to. … We were extremely vocal as senior leaders. We held people accountable. … That ‘come with me’ style was our style on defense this year. We looked at the younger girls and said: ‘You’re not great at this right now but, guess what, you’re going to be by the end of the season.’”

On paper, Friday’s FIH Series Finals last-four clash between hosts India and Japan in Bhubaneswar is a no-contest.

Fifth-ranked India are riding high, with 23 goals in their three pool matches. As many as 10 of the 16 outfield players have scored, both from open play and penalty corners, while they have conceded just once, against Poland.

The last time these teams met, India ran out 8-0 winners at the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta.

Eight days later, though, India beat Pakistan to pick up the bronze medal, while Japan fought back spectacularly from 2-5 down with eight minutes to go against Malaysia to become the first country outside India, Pakistan and South Korea to have claimed the men’s hockey gold in Asian Games history.

It is that spirit that Japanese coach Siegfried Aikman wants his team, who have already qualified for the 2020 Olympics as hosts, to harness.

“We always fight, and we want to give our best on the field. As long as the match is on, there are possibilities to recover,” Aikman tells ESPN. “Our final goal is to do well at the Olympics, and to do that we need to test ourselves. This is a test, to see how we can do with the better teams. I had hoped the match against India would be the final, but [it] doesn’t matter. We have to win it.”

The day ahead of the big game, the 18th-ranked Japanese team visited the Peace Pagoda — Sanchi Stupa for locals — along the Daya river in Dhauli, about eight kms south of Bhubaneswar. It is said the Mauryan king Ashoka, who ruled these parts more than two millennia ago, renounced the path of war and embraced Buddhism when he saw the river turn red in the aftermath of the Kalinga war.

For all of the Japanese players, this trip to Bhubaneswar is their first time in India, and they have also been told about the devastation left behind by Cyclone Fani, which hit the eastern parts of India at the end of April, and left more than 60 casualties in Odisha alone. The trip to Dhauli, says Aikman, was the first bus ride that didn’t involve going to the stadium or the hotel.

Aikman picked up lessons from the post-cyclone rehabilitation programs, especially those that enabled the hockey to continue as scheduled just a month on from the cyclone, to inspire his team. “It’s a warm place, and it’s also a bit sad to see what the cyclone has done. On the other hand it is fantastic to see how the people have dealt with it and carried on rebuilding with life,” he says, observing that the number of trees uprooted due to the cyclone have left the city’s green cover considerably reduced. “It’s inspiring, because whatever devastation there is, there’s always a way up as long as you keep going forward.”

“That’s what I tell my players in the match. If we have some bad moments or if we lose, the world isn’t gone. We can always recover.”

That philosophy was apparent when trailing 0-1 after one quarter of their crossover against Poland on Wednesday. Their first two penalty corners were put away to make it 2-1, and while Poland equalised, Japan’s attacking trio of Kenta Tanaka, Kenji Kitazato and Koji Yamasaki then turned the screws on their opponents. With a 5-2 lead, Japan conceded their first penalty corner in the 59th minute, defended it well, and then Tanaka set up Yamasaki for a sixth with 37 seconds to go.

“We are a team that never gives up. That’s our strength and that’s also what I like about what I see it. This is what I use when I want to inspire them. They will need some inspiration to deal with the opposition,” says Aikman, preparing to brace for the task of keeping a forwardline with Akashdeep Singh (five goals), Mandeep Singh (two), Gursahibjit Singh (two) and Simranjit Singh (one) in check.

“India play at high speed, they are skilled. It’s a big challenge, and life is about challenges, and it’s one we will happily accept.”

Mumtaz Khan scored India’s solitary goal as the junior women’s hockey team went down 1-4 to the Belarus senior team in Baranovichi, Belarus on Wednesday.

Despite the scoreline, India’s juniors held Belarus for large periods of the match, and tested their defence constantly. Belarus lead the series 2-1.

Belarus’ team kicked off the proceedings at a very high pace and won their first penalty corner of the game within minutes of the hooter.

Ryta Batura converted the subsequent attempt to give Belarus the lead. India gained some possession and created some chances, but Belarus hit back at speed and Dziyana Khmylova’s goal extended their lead. The hosts went into the break leading by two goals.

India took the initiative in the second quarter and won a penalty corner right at the start, dragging it wide.

Over the course of the period, the teams traded penalty corner attempts but neither could find the breakthrough.

Finally at the end of the quarter, Mumtaz converted a penalty corner to draw India to within one goal. The teams went into halftime, India trailing 2-1.

In a tightly contested third quarter, both sides were eager to not concede an inch. The period was dominated by a lot of exchanges in the midfield, and despite India attacking at regular intervals they didn’t create clear chances for conversion.

In a frenetic final quarter, the two teams exchanged penalty corners right at the start, with both failing to convert or trouble the scoreboard.

Finally it was Krestsina Papkova’s penalty corner conversion – who scored the third goal – that gave them breathing space.

India had a few chances late in the game, but failed to convert them to reduce the deficit.

In the last minute of play, Natalia Shitin scored a fourth to complete Belarus’ victory.

The Indian junior team will play Belarus senior team on June 14.
