NOT AN ENTIRELY CONVINCING WIN, BUT A WIN NONETHELESS FOR NEW ZEALAND - STEPHEN JENNESS WINS THE PLAYER OF THE MATCH AWARD  
...
WOULD YOU BELIEVE IT - THE FRENCH HAD 8 SHOTS ON GOAL WHILE THE BLACK STICKS MANAGED ONLY 6, 22 CIRCLE ENTRIES FOR THE FRENCH - ONLY 13 FOR NZ (WILL DARREN SMITH BE CONCENED???) - NO PCs FOR NZ - FRANCE EARNED 4 - CHARLET SCORED FROM THE LAST OF THEM
...
THE BLACK STICKS EARN FULL POINTS - BUT NOT BEFORE THEY SURVIVE A REAL SCARE AS DELMEE'S CHARGERS PUT ON A BRAVE DISPLAY - THE FRENCH HAD THEIR CHANCES - MISSED A FEW BY A MERE WHISKER - CHARLET SCORED ONE BUT SHOULD HAVE GOT ANOTHER 
...

WAS THE BALL STOPPED INSIDE THE CIRCLE????
...
CHARLET SCORES - BUT IS IT TOO LITTLE TOO LATE????
...
58' The French pass the ball around - across both flanks - look for gaps - earn a PC
...
57' One last deperate attempt by the French - can they earn a PC - no is the answer
...
NEW ZEALAND 2 - FRANCE 0
...
55' STEPHEN JENNESS SENDS ONE CRASHING INTO THE NET AT THE OTHER END - WHICH MAY EFFECTIVELY SEAL THE DEAL FOR THE BLACK STICKS
...
54' DELMEE LOOKS ON - HIS SIDE HAS DONE JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING RIGHT  - BUT HAVE FAILED TO GET THE BALL INTOT HE NET!! 
...
GREAT SAVE - CHARLET IS DENIED YET AGAIN

CAN CHARLET POWER ONE IN THIS TIME??

52' The French come away - yet again - from the right this time - FRANCE HAVE A PC!!!!!!
...
50' Kane Russell - at long last - manages to push ahead for the Black Sticks - cannot get a shot on goal
...
48' The Black Sticks hanging by a thread here - Tom Genestet brilliant as ever manages to enter the striking circle but cannot find a white shirt in front of goal
...
47' The tale continues - the French nearly - so very nearly find the back of the net 
...
NEW ZEALAND LIVING RATHER DANGEROUSLY - THE COMPLEXION OF THIS MATCH CAN CHANGE IN A FLASH IF ONLY THE FRENCH MANAGE TO FIND SPACE IN THE NZ CIRCLE
...
END OF Q3: NEW ZEALAND 1 - FRANCE 0
...
43' The French possibly need to do something different if they are to find an opening goal
