England were comfortable winners on the opening day of the 2009 BDO Women’s Junior World Cup in Boston, USA, beating France by five clear goals including doubles for Bowdon Hightown’s Sara Jo Coakley and University of Birmingham forward Sophie Bray.

 

Leicester’s Lauren Turner gave England the best possible start when she finished well after good work down the left by Britain’s youngest ever hockey Olympian, Charlotte Craddock just ten minutes in.  It was Craddock’s drive down the wing and accurate cross into the middle that set up Turner for the goal, which she did well to deflect home to give England the lead.

 

Despite the early goal England were unable to build on their advantage and it was not until the second half that they began to assert their superiority; five minutes into the half Coakley doubled England’s lead from open play but France responded and the English had captain Sam Quek to thank for a diving goal line clearance shortly after.

 

Sophie Bray got in on the act in the 48th minute with her first of a brace and just four minutes later Coakley had her second, assisted by Bray.  Driving hard along the baseline, Bray did well to evade defensive challenges before cutting the ball back to the waiting Coakley for goal number four, putting the game well beyond the French.

 

There was still time for Bray to get her second goal and with just eight minutes remaining she put the ball over the line from close range to make it 5-0. 

 

In the other match in England’s pool, Korea, the winners of the previous two Women’s Junior World Cup tournaments, beat Chile 6-1 to top the group from England on ‘goals for’.  The two sides meet tomorrow in what is already a crunch game that looks likely to determine who tops Pool A.
