GLASGOW, Scotland – The United States women’s national field hockey team wrapped up pool play at the 2014 Women’s Hockey Champions Challenge on a strong note, defeating Ireland by a 3-0 tally Wednesday, Apr. 30 at the Glasgow National Hockey Centre.

The squad rebounded from a 2-1 setback to South Africa Monday to hold the Irish scoreless for the duration of Wednesday’s contest. Team USA struck first on its second penalty corner opportunity in the seventh minute and added two more goals in the opening half en route to collecting the 3-0 victory.

“I thought we had a great day today,” said Assistant U.S. Coach Janneke Schopman. “We knew what Ireland was about. They’re strong with long hits and we defended them really well. We gained some confidence from this match and we ended on the top of the pool. We are in good standing.”

Former Blue Devil Stefanie Fee and the U.S. team also topped Spain, 3-1, on the first day of the Champions Challenge. Up next, the squad faces fourth-place Pool A opponent India in the tournament quarterfinals at 3:15 p.m. ET (8:15 p.m. local time).

A 2012 graduate of Duke, Fee started every game for the Blue Devils during her four seasons in Durham. The standout defender garnered All-America, All-ACC and All-ACC Tournament accolades her senior year, in addition to being named to the Longstreth/NFHCA All-South Region first team.
