Favourites Netherlands, Korea and Argentina all took their first steps along the tough BDO Hockey Junior World Cup path with dominant victories one day one in Santiago.

Zimbabwe were outmatched from the outset and despite remaining positive and working hard for the duration of the match, they were unable to stem the flow of Dutch goals and will struggle to make an impact in a Pool that also contains USA and England.

Dutch defender Maartje Paumen produced the day’s most impressive individual performance by netting five penalty corner goals in the 13-0 romp.

USA got the tournament of to a vibrant start with an upset win of England virtually guaranteeing them entry in the next phase of the tournament. England’s start was positive but USA continued to press and were rewarded when they opened a winning lead in the middle third of the match.

With that result, USA joined Netherlands at the top of Pool A and these two teams meet in the first match of day two. England have a chance to get their campaign back on track and make amends for today’s sluggish performance with a clash against Zimbabwe.

The draw between India and South Africa - the only one of day one – has left Germany alone at the top of Pool B and given Cananda a chance to bridge the gap and keep their second pahes hopes alive.

With the top three teams advancing to the next phase, only Germany seems assured of progressing after today’s play. They controlled their match against Canada and never looked seriously threatened.

Korea and Argentina both recorded strong victories in Pool C. Korea was a five-goal winner over a committed Scotland while Argentina won by four against Belarus.

Both teams were two of the pre-tournament favourites and today’s efforts have only confirmed their expected presence in the knockout stages of the tournament.

Pool D featured one of the day’s most evenly fought matches, with Spain’s penalty corner battery edging it ahead of Australia.

In the last match on day one, home team Chile got off to a perfect start and sit atop the Pool after a three-goal win over China.
