Junior Men - Game 4 - China

GAME 3 versus NEW ZEALAND

A very close game all the way through, with New Zealand leading 1-0 at the end of the first. Patrik Keyes was able to tie the  game up mid way through the second before New Zealand scored to quick goals to put them in the driving seat. A late goal from Alec Young wasn't enough to claw the game back. Great effort from the entire team yesterday, a much improved performance from the Namibia game. The loss leaves Ireland battling for 17-20th; not what their target is but they will play to the end to finish as highly as possible.

We caught up with Flying Ducks' Daniel Connolly to get his thoughts on yesterday's game.
