Ireland delight


IRELAND'S women pulled off a shock to defeat USA 2-0 with goals from Megan Frazer and Anna O'Flanagan to ensure they finish in the top two of Pool B of the World League Round 3 in Valencia yesterday.

Ireland's quarter-final will be against world No 7 side China tomorrow. A victory in that quarter-final, or a win in the 5th-8th-place play-offs, will ensure their qualification for the Olympic Games.
