MONCHENGLADBACH, Germany - The United States U-21 National Team dropped its first placement game at the 2013 Field Hockey Junior World Cup to Australia, 4-1 on Friday. UMass senior Hannah Prince and sophomore Sam Carlino will now close their competition with the squad against South Africa in the 7-8 place game on Sunday, Aug. 4.

Australia tallied goals in the 16th and 51st minute before the Team USA offense was able to respond with a strike in the 55th minute. The U.S. was unable to convert again down the stretch, with the Australians adding tallies in the 67th minute and on a penalty corner at the end of regulation to reach the final score. Carlino played in the entirety of the contest in the cage while Prince joined the action as a substitute during the 13th minute.

The United States will close competition against South Africa, which finished second in Pool B with a 1-0-2 record and fell to Spain in its most recent game, 3-1.

Carlino and Prince will return the Amherst, Mass., following competition at the Junior World Cup as UMass begins preparations for the 2013 season. The Minutewomen start the year with a pair of contests at the University of Maine Invitational on Aug. 30-31 before facing UMass-Lowell in the home-opener on Sept. 3 at 6 p.m.
