Germany men’s and women’s hockey teams won their respective International Hockey Federation (FIH) Pro League matches in Mönchengladbach.

Germany women’s hockey team registered a 2-0 win over the United States.

While the hosts dominated the opening half, the US also had some good opportunities to score past Germany.

United States keeper Kelsey Bing and her counter-part Julia Sonntag were called into action on multiple occasions as the game was scoreless at half time.

In the 35th minute, Germany finally broke the deadlock.

From the left, Nele Aring sends beautiful back-hand cross for an open Hanna Granitzki to make it 1-0.

In the last moments of the third quarter, Sonja Zimmermann’s low penalty corner was enough to secure victory for Germany despite a sloppy fourth quarter.

Among men, Germany edged past Spain 2-1.

Gonzalo Peillat, who was playing his first international match since the 2018 World Cup, scored the opener from a penalty corner in the opening 45 seconds.  

Spain keeper Mario Garin was busy with a flurry of chances from the hosts.

In the 35th minute, Niklas Wellen extended the lead for Germany after slotting home an inch-perfect pass from Marco Miltkau.

 Ricardo Sanchez slotted one back for Spain but it proved to be too late in the end.
