The second day of the 2021 Indoor Pan American Cup began with the women's match between the United States (WR 12) and Uruguay (WR 22), which added a new victory for the North American team that beat the Uruguayans 2-1.
The game started really challenge for both teams, entering the area and goal shots . Uruguay had control of the ball by the end of the first quarter, although the United States found ways to counter-attack.
From the beginning of the second quarter, Uruguay showed a solid defense, emerging gracefully from the insistent attacks by the North Americans. The only play of the first half of the game featured the Uruguayan women, although they did not manage to gain an advantage.
The third quarter had an interruption due to a Uruguayan player receiving a blow on the face. Once the game was resumed, the United States was quick to show dominance and got three set plays without being able to open the score.
It was in the last quarter where the goals show up. Hope Rose (# 6) was responsible for scoring the first North American goal via penalty corner in the 32nd minute. Immediately after , Ashley Sessa (# 19) converted the second. In an effort not to leave without a fight, De María (# 6) managed to convert the first for Uruguay through a penalty stroke.
With this result, the United States secured another 3 points, partially retaining the top. Uruguay will seek to score points in their next match against Guyana (WR 31)
