Game Recap: Team China Women’s Team Participates in the Hong Kong Lacrosse Open in April 2016

赛事回顾:中国女子队于2016年4月参加香港棍网球公开赛

The Chinese national women’s team participated in the annual Hong Kong Lacrosse Open held at Stanley Ho Sports Center this April. Along with 3 other nations/regions including Hong Kong, Singapore and Team Shanghai (expatriate players living in shanghai and Beijing area), Chinese women’s team played a total of 4 official games. The tournament gave the young Chinese team a great opportunity to compete in a professional way and grow together as a team.

中国国家女子棍网球队于今年四月参加了一年一度的香港棍网球公开赛。同时参赛的有其他三只球队,包括香港队,新加坡对和上海队(由上海和北京地区的外籍球员组成)。中国女子队总共参加了四场比赛。此次联赛为中国女队提供了一次专业比赛的经历,并培养了队员们的团队精神。

 

On the first day of the tournament, Team China had a strong start playing against Team Shanghai. Shanghai was in a man-down situation due to the lack of players. China started the game strong, scoring a goal by Marcia Mo, the experienced midfielder, prior to shanghai got on the board with a goal by number 31 at 9:15. Unfortunately, the great draw controls taken by Shanghai left China in a bad situation. Shanghai scored 6 more goals, mostly fast breaks, in the first half to push the lead to 7-1 before Team China’s Captain Hualing Yu scored a goal to close out the first half at 7-2. Team China had a lot of issues on communication on both ends of the field. Beginning the second half, attacker Ariel Luo got a fast break opportunity and finished with a beautiful low shot on goal.

联赛第一天,中国队就对上海队发起了强烈进攻。由于缺少队员,上海队一度进入溃败境地。在上海队31号队员于9:15进球之前,颇有经验的中场队员Marcia Mo,为中国队首发进球。不幸的是,由于上海队控球太强,中国队一直处于弱势。上海队接下来用快攻手法进了6个球,在上半场比分领先中国队7-1,直到上半场快结束时,中国队队长俞华凌将比分追为7-2. 中国队在场上沟通交流方面有很多问题。第二场开始时,前锋Ariel Luo得到了快攻机会,以漂亮的低射球得到一分。

 

However, Team China was playing offside due to the lack of communication, and the goal was not counted. Same problem also happened to a goal unassisted by Marcia Mo. Although Team China wasted two goals, they started to perform better as a team. The defensive line-up closed up the 8-meter and stopped Shanghai from scoring in the entire second half. On the attack side, Yao Xu scored a goal out of penalty, and the two captains, Hualing Yu and Marcia Mo, scored one goal each. Shanghai, however, was able to hold China scoreless for the last 6 minutes of the contest, securing the victory at 7-5. Marcia Mo was awarded the MVP at the end of the day.

但是,中国队由于缺乏场上交流,产生越位,因此这个球无效。同样的问题也产生在一个没有Marcia Mo助攻的进球中。尽管中国队浪费了两个进球,队员们却开始渐渐在团队协作中越战越勇。整个下半场,中国队防守队员在八米线外成功组织了上海队的进攻。进攻队员中,Yao Xu罚球得分,两位队长俞华凌和Marcia Mo各进一球。但是上海队的超强防守使得中国队在最后六分钟内一球未进,以7-5保证了他们的胜利。在第一天结束之前,Marcia Mo得到了最佳队员奖。

 

On the following day, Team China faced Team Singapore, which was led by a current Team England player. Team China ran until the very last minute of the contest and netted only one goal in the second half by Yangyang Yang. The final score was 8-1. Hualing Yu was the MVP selected by the referees.

比赛的第二天,中国队与英国队队员带领下的新加坡队交锋。直到比赛的最后一刻,中国队只在下半场进了一个球,由队员Yangyang Yang得分。最终比分定为8-1。俞华凌被教练选为这天的最佳队员。

 

Day 3 of the tournament was a tough day for Team China. The host Hong Kong HPP was able to control the tempo of the game. They kept their momentum going throughout the entire game and kept China scoreless. The final score was 10-0 with our goalie Mandy Wang being the game MVP.

比赛第三天对于中国队来说是艰难的一天。主办方香港队有效地控制了比赛的节奏。他们整个比赛中一鼓作气,让中国队一分未得。最终两队比分为10-0。Mandy Wang 被选为最佳队员。

 

Unfortunately, Team China was not able to win the rematch against Shanghai. Even though Team China faced 4 tough losses in the tournament, the players had a great time experiencing international lacrosse and the beautiful city of Hong Kong.

令人惋惜的是,中国队并没有在与上海队的重赛中取得胜利。尽管中国队在本次棍网球公开赛中四次败北,队员们仍然在这次难得的国际棍网球比赛中打得很尽兴,并对香港的美流连忘返。

 

The players also attended a clinic at Hong Kong International School and played a friendship game against HKIS students.

我们的队员们还参加了香港国际学校举办的研习班,并与香港国际学校的学生们打了一场友谊赛。
