Victoria Granatto, left, scored a brace for Argentina against United States

Argentina women’s hockey team registered another win over the United States in the International Hockey Federation (FIH) Pro League while the men’s team went down to France at Cenard in Buenos Aires.

Victoria Granatto scored the opener as Argentina women cruised to a 3-0 win over the United States.

After a tight dribble against Jacqueline Sumfest, Granatto calmly slotted the ball between keeper Kelsey Bing to break the deadlock.

Granatto doubled the lead in the third quarter from an almost impossible angle as she converted a cross from Julieta Jankunas.

Bing, who despite conceding three goals, had a great game and was the reason why Argentina did not score more.

But a 47th minute strike from skipper Rocio Sanchez sealed the game with Jankunas once again delivering the assist from the left baseline.

"I think it was a very tough game," Granatto said.

"We worked really well in different areas of the field, and we played well in defence.

"We scored the goals we wanted to score and today we were a lot more concentrated as yesterday wasn’t good enough.

"We are still building the team.

"Wins are important for us and we did it (in the two games) and I think we are in a good way ahead of the World Cup."

The men’s team, however, failed to add to their win yesterday as both teams started the game at a high pace.

In the 11th minute, Gaspard Xavier’s peach of a delivery was turned in by Stanislas Branicki to give France the lead.

The French backline continued to frustrate the Argentinian attack with Ignacio Nepote and Agustin Mazzili denied a chance on goal.

In the third quarter, the decisive goal was scored from a penalty corner after a clinical execution Viktor Lockwood back to Charles Masson who made no mistake to make it 2-0.

"We played a great game together so we are in a good team spirit today," Masson said after the game.

"We defended well and we scored when we really needed to score.

"The first game we played we didn’t defend that well so that was the reason why we won today, better defence, and we had strong penalty corner defence."
