Coetzee wins top goalscorer award
South Africa's talismanic women's hockey team striker Pietie Coetzee (34) added another accolade to her glittering career when she was named top goalscorer at the Four Nations tournament awards ceremony on Sunday afternoon at Club zur Vahr in Bremen, Germany.
Coetzee netted a stunning first-half-hat-trick via all three methods of scoring - penalty stroke, penalty corner and a field goal from open play - to take her world record to an astonishing 245 goals in 248 test matches.
The superstar striker's contribution spearheaded South Africa's 4-1 win over Belgium to take the Four Nations bronze medal.
The hat-trick gave Coetzee four goals in the tournament. She scored one goal against Germany on Thursday.
Germany won the tournament with New Zealand clinching second spot.
