Great Britain make semis with one game still to play

Team GB overpower USA to make the semi-finals and keep medal hopes alive.

From Beach Soccer Worldwide:

A good save by Haughton from a Witteman shot was the only action of real significance in the first period after Kempson had put Great Britain in front after a matter of seconds.

Wendy Martin doubled their lead after 4 minutes of the second period only for it then to be halved seconds later by Sunseri Warp. That the prospective USA comeback proved to be a false dawn could be attributed to Great Britain being far the more clinical of the two teams over the three periods.

Martin bagged her second of the match before Kempson did likewise in spectacular fashion. Her driven, left-footed shot from considerable distance arrowed past Lowder in the USA goal and into the top corner to confirm her team’s demonstrable superiority. Haynes nearly inflicted further damage to the Americans, rattling the crossbar with an overhead kick from out near the touchline.

Quigley dented the deficit with a scrappy finish as the USA applied more pressure in the third. A flowing, one-touch USA move, started by the goalkeeper, concluded in a smart save from Haughton in the GB goal. Witteman then tested her again with a sharp drive, before an awkward moment resulted in the ball bobbling along the bar for a USA corner.

Gemma Hillier rounded off the result with seven minutes to play with a clever lob. Taking advantage of Lowder’s advanced positioning after she had ventured from her goal to clear, Hillier struck a first-time lob after receiving a headed pass out to the right. A strike of some style to give Great Britain their second win from two games.

Goals: 1-0: Kempson, min. 11 (1); 2-0: Martin, min. 8 (2); 2-1: Sunseri Warp, min 7 (2); 3-1: Martin, min. 5 (2); Kempson, min. 2 (2); 4-2: Quigley, min. 10 (3); 5-2: Hillier, min. 7 (3)
