Ireland’s women team will play USA in today’s Champions Challenge final in Glasgow after beating South Africa 2-1 in a fast-paced semi-final.

Ireland went behind in the eighth minute but Megan Frazer levelled from a cracking penalty corner strike in the 15th minute. The winners then took a deserved lead in the 45th minute when Katie Mullan cut the baseline and passed to Nikki Evans who made no mistake from close range.
