USA NZ ARG women's field hockey teams: comparison by goal differential

  1. 1. One way to evaluateperformance is to do acomparison. I chose the NZwomen as a comparator forthe USA womens programbecause NZ has a new set ofcoaches and NZ was ranked~12th in the world in 2005,which is similar to thesituation the USA womensprogram was in circa 2005.What do these graphs for theyears 2004-2012 tell us?The first row of graphsshows that the goalcumulative differentialbetween the ARG and USAwomens teams is increasingin ARGs favor and that thecumulative goal differentialbetween the ARG and NZteams is being reduced.The second row of graphsshows that the goal per gamedifferential between theARG and USA womensteams is increasing in ARGsfavorand that the per game goaldifferential between theARG and NZ teams is beingreduced by NZ.The third set of graphsshows the total goaldifferential per year. Thegraphs are self evident.ARG is increasing the goaldifferential against the USA.NZ is reducing the goaldifferential vs ARGgd = goal difference
