Germany women’s hockey team secured a 4-0 victory over United States in their International Hockey Federation (FIH) Pro League match at SparkassenPark in Mönchengladbach.

Germany’s opener came late into the second quarter when Hanna Granitzki found Lena Micheel unmarked at the far post.

Micheel showed her composure as she slotted past USA keeper Kelsey Bing to make it 1-0.

While the United States did their best to keep up, the German press was too much to handle.

In the fourth quarter, Sonja Zimmerman took advantage of a penalty corner to make it 2-0.

Soon after that, Emma Boermans on the right baseline set up Charlotte Gerstenhöfer who did well to sweep the ball in for the third goal.

Elisa Gräve sealed the fourth goal and victory for the Germans in a classic counter attacking move.

Among men, the hosts triumphed against Spain in a shootout after a 1-1 draw in regulation time.

Germany broke the deadlock from a penalty corner thanks to a clean strike from Gonzalo Peillat in the 48th minute.

Spain’s response also came through a penalty corner.

Pepe Cunill’s initial effort was blocked by goalkeeper Alexander Stadler before José Basterra scored from the rebound.

Niklas Wellen, Raphael Hartkopf and Thies Prinz all scored for Germany in the shootout before Stadler blocked Rafael Vilallonga’s shot to secure a 3-2 win.
