Guyana was looking to get a win and recover from the 20-2 defeat against the United States and also take revenge from the last game in which they faced the South Americans, which was in 2017 for this same tournament, Argentina won 3-0.
The Argentine girls struck quickly and at the beginning they took the lead thanks to a goal from Carina Guzmán and then from Zanni and Gomes on two occasions. At the end of the first quarter Zanni scored again, but this time with a penalty stroke. Thus the first 10 minutes ended 5-0 in favor of Argentina.
In the second quarter, Argentina reached the rival area again at 2nd minute and it was María Eugenia Nimo who put the final stamp on the play. Then Guyana improved the defense and prevented their goal from being beaten until the end of the quarter, when Olympian Gomes Fantasia converted twice through her specialty on outdoor hockey: the penalty corner.
In the third querter the guyaneses notably improved their defensive appearance and resisted the offensive actions until, averaging the fourth , Guzmán scored her second goal. In this section, Argentina scored two more goals (Irianni and Berola), but none through the penalty corner, which show the changes that Phillip Fernándes proposed to her players.
Finally, in the last quarter Argentina scored three times (Agudo x2 and Ríos Ferreyra). However, Fernando Ferrara decided to take out his goalkeeper when there were still 6 minutes left to finish the game and play with 6 players on the field. This action allowed the “albicelestes” to score two goals and win 14-0, obtaining their first victory in the tournament.
