Football Ferns through to quarters
Wed, 01 Aug 2012 9:06a.m.
The New Zealand women's soccer team are into the quarter-finals at the London Olympics after beating Cameroon 3-1 in Coventry.
The Football Ferns took the lead shortly before half-time through captain Rebecca Smith and after an own goal doubled their lead, striker Sarah Gergorius added a third goal.
Cameroon pulled one back through Gabrielle Ogunene but the Ferns held on to book a place in the last eight as one of the two best third-placed teams.
The win, and the three points, mean they edged out North Korea for the final spot in the quarter-finals on goal difference.
They play reigning Olympic champions United States on Thursday in Newcastle.
