Match report

Kane Russell’s penalty corner quartet propelled Hamburger Polo Club into the FINAL8 of the EHL Men’s competition as they pulled clear of Ireland’s Lisnagarvey 7-1.

It completed a perfect week in Hamburg for the club as they backed up their 4-0 victory over Wimbledon with another strong win in their debut campaign, much to the delight of their noisy green and red fans.

Russell had them on the scoreboard within two minutes with a typical penalty corner goal. The New Zealander was at it again before the end of the first quarter, making it 2-0 to build a commanding lead which they held until half-time.

Garvey, though, fought hard and were back in the game early in the second half when Ollie Kidd scrambled in from close range, cutting the gap to 2-1.

But a spectacular Russell third goal in the 35th minute from yet another corner restored a comfortable wedge, 3-1 going into the final quarter.

Kane varied the move for a fourth goal from a set piece, dummying past the first runner before flicking in from mid-circle. After that, the Irish side ran out of legs and Polo took advantage.

Hugo Inglis got their first from open play and Jan-Hendrik Bartels added another a couple of seconds later. Constantin Staib scored his third of the competition to close out the 7-1 success.
