|10||Pool B||11:00am||URU - CHI||0 - 3||Official||x 2|
In the other Pool B match, Uruguay and Chile met. The first quarter started with play in Chile’s attacking end. Chile’s Carolina Garcia scored in the 6th minute to give Chile the lead. A minute later, a shot by Filipek was perfectly deflected by Manuela Urroz to increase her team’s lead. Uruguay continued to battle for possession, but could not generate attacking opportunities. Uruguay was able to largely keep Chile from taking more than a few shots.
Chile earned a penalty corner to start the second quarter. Uruguay’s keeper Rosanna Paselle blocked Chile’s penalty corner shot. Similar to the first quarter, Chile had more possession than Uruguay in the second half, but Uruguay kept playing strong defense. Half way through the second quarter, with Uruguay still playing well defensively, Chile continued to pass the ball in the midfield. Eventually, Chile broke through into their attacking circle and earned a penalty corner in the 26th minute. Paselle again saved a Chile penalty corner shot to keep Chile from increasing their lead. Josefa Villalabeitia and Francisca Tala had one of Chile’s best scoring opportunities late in the second quarter, but could not connect. With no more scoring opportunities by either team in the second quarter, the score at halftime was still Uruguay 0, Chile 2.
The third quarter continued as the second quarter ended with Chile controlling possession and Uruguay playing smart defense. As a result, Chile was not able to penetrate their attacking circle much in the third quarter. Uruguay’s only shot on goal was by Janine Stanley in the 42nd minute, but the Chilean defense was there to divert the shot. With Chile also unable to score in the third quarter, the score remained Uruguay 0, Chile 2 at the end of the third quarter.
In the fourth quarter, Chile pressured even harder on attack. Chile earned a penalty corner in the 49th minute and Camila Caram capitalized. After Chile was not able to convert two more penalty corners, Uruguay came back fired up on attack. Uruguay was able to get down in their attacking end for their best chances to score in the quarter and had possession for a number of minutes at the end of the fourth quarter, but Chile’s defense prevented Uruguay from getting a shot off. Thus, the match ended Uruguay 0, Chile 3.
