The other hockey?



Hockey-World-Hosts Argentina secure top spot with England win

ROSARIO, Sept 6 (Reuters) – Hosts Argentina, keeping their goal intact for the fourth successive match, beat England 2-0 Monday to win Pool B at the women’s hockey World Cup.

This was a Reuters Sports News Headline.

Surely it should read either “Soccer or Football” as I am certain that women’s world cup hockey is not being played in Argentina. Further, the article reads like a soccer commentary with terms like “corner penalty specialist”. Although a reference to a “shot from the top of the circle” had me utterly confused for a moment.

Finally, as a proud Canadian, I am certain that a women’s “world hockey” tournament would not be at the exclusion of our great Canadian Women’s Hockey team!

Please correct said article as I believe the women of both sports, soccer and hockey, deserve this professional courtesy, at the least.
