GB Women slip to second Slovakia defeat

Great Britain Women were beaten 5-1 by Slovakia in the second of their two-game series this weekend.

The game was part of GB’s preparations for the upcoming Olympic pre-qualifiers in Kazakhstan in November.

Miriam Mikeskovav (3), Radka Trebulova and Michaela Hana Hajnikova got the Slovakia goals, while Casey Traill scored a late consolation for GB.

Head Coach Michelle Smith said: “This was another hard game against a very good side. Slovakia are a tough side, but we often held our own against them.

“We are going to return home with plenty to be happy about in many different areas. We took a number of younger players to this tournament and they didn’t disappoint.

“Of course, we have some areas we need to work on, but I think we can be happy with the two games.”
