The Women's Field Hockey Gold Medal Match Was Even Bloodier Than The Semifinals

We already showed you this brutal connection between hockey stick and face, and it happened again during today's gold medal match between Holland and Argentina. The Netherlands ended up taking gold with a 2-0 win, but injury was added to insult when Argentina's Mariela Scarone let her face get in the way of a Dutch player's stick and ended up coming off the field with a face full of blood. Still, a silver medal and a face injury is better than where the U.S. team ended up—dead last. As for the Netherlands, they sure do seem to leave their opponents with catastrophic injuries. As Dan noted, it's the same player who levied the pain in both instances.
