The final day of the Men’s Hero Hockey Junior World Cup in India saw Korea and New Zealand compete for 7th and 8th place with New Zealand winning 4-2. Both teams showed from the start that they were in attacking mood and Jeremy Morris gave the advantage to the Black Sticks in the 11th minute with a powerful back hand that went through the keeper. Korea came back on par immediately by You Minyoung pouncing on a cross mishandled by the New Zealand defence. Kane Russell continued the scoring spree with a penalty-corner flick that was nearly stopped by the keeper’s stick but still trickled over the line.Korea were credited with a goal when the ball slightly brushed off the pads of Richard Joyce in the Black Sticks goal and the video-umpire decided on an own goal. The see-saw continued and New Zealand regained the lead just before half-time with another penalty-corner by Kane Russell.New Zealand also missed their good share of chances, including a monumental opportunity when Jeremy Morris missed a perfect pass alone on the far post after Kane Russell wiggled his way through the whole Korean defence. New Zealand earned a penalty-corner literally in the last second of play, allowing Kane Russell to complete a hat-trick.New Zealand finished in 7th place of the 2013 Hero Hockey Junior World Cup, pushing Korea down to 8th.Korea: LEE Seyoung (GK), AN Hyochang, YOU Seungju, RIM Jinkang, LEE Mookyoung, YOU Minyoung, HWANG Weonki, NAM Yunseon, KIM Juhyun, JI Woocheon, CHO Sungmin, SEO Inwoo, LEE Juyoung, LEE Beomryeol (C), YOO Jaeho (GK), KIM Hyeongjin, YOO Hanyoung, KIM KihoonNZL: MACINTYRE Oliver, ELDER Nick, MISKIMMIN Harry, HAZLETT Angus, JOYCE Richard (GK), LALA Sanjay, REES-GIBBS Matt, PANCHIA Jared, MUIR George, MORRIS Jeremy...
