Lidewij Welten jostles for the ball with German defender Selin Oruz in the Netherlands women's hockey team's 3-0 win at Sengkang Stadium last night on day five of The Project Group International Tri-Series.

Welten scored the third goal during a first-half blitz against the world No. 8 team, following Ginella Zerbo's brace. This was the top-ranked Oranje's second victory, after their 2-0 win over world No. 3 Australia on Wednesday.
