Although the Belgians were still dominant, the New Zealanders equalised when Wilson beat the Belgian keeper Vanasch.
The match could have gone either way and New Zealand looked dangerous in front of goal after Boccard’s yellow card.
A New Zeeland penalty corner hit the post in the final minute of the game. The score remained 1-1.
With four points from four games, the Red Lion’s now have no chance of winning a medal and the best they can hope for is 5th place.
