Anna Mayes’ team recorded their second straight victory in the Tri-Nations at the NMMU Indoor Sports Centre in Port Elizabeth.
England dominated from the first pass, running in 11 unanswered goals to take them to 11-0 lead in the first quarter before Trinidad and Tobago scored their first goal.
At half-time it was a 20 point lead as England pressed ahead 30-10, looking sharp and polished.
Bringing on captain Anika La Roche Brice in the second quarter brought stability to the Trinidad and Tobago team as they began to find some rhythm.
But the night belonged to England, who were out to prove a point.
“I’m satisfied with the overall performance of the team,” said Mayes.
“We are a bit disappointed with the score we could have scored a lot more. There were a few blimps where we lacked a little bit of composure.” England went into the game highly confident after having beaten an impressive Proteas outfit on Wednesday, a day after the hosts had steam-rolled the Trinidad and Tobago outfit.
Mayes said she was confident of her team’s chances for Friday’s final, but would not underestimate the Proteas.
“We need to limit the shots per quarter because they are renowned for being clinical with ball in hand.
“We need to keep our width and depth so that we can play the ball around their defence.
“They are very good shoulder to shoulder and we need to be to be ruthless in terms of our placement and our ability to get free.”
