Match Report

Hockeyroos swept aside by Netherlands

The Netherlands showed that despite missing Naomi van As they have more than enough talent at their disposal by comprehensively defeating Australia’s Hockeyroos 3-0 in the final match of the day here at the Rabo FIH Champions Trophy in Amstelveen.

First half goals from Maartje Paumen and Lidewij Welten established a well earned lead before a great strike from Wieke Dijkstra in the second period sealed the triumph in front of a big crowd in the Wagener Stadium.

Paumen’s goal came after only seven minutes and arrived in typical style, with her high penalty corner flick sailing just inside the right post. The Netherlands doubled their lead thanks to Welten’s excellent finish, a volley into the roof of the net following superb work from the ever-dangerous Kim Lammers.  The Australians struggled to contain the fast flowing, skillful Dutch women for much of the first half but began to find their feet in the latter stages, suggesting that the spectators could be instore for an exciting second period.

However, it was The Netherlands again who were on top early in the second half, winning an early penalty corner which could not be converted.  Despite this, the Hockeyroos gave a much better showing of themselves in the second period and came close to pulling a goal back on a couple of occasions. Smart play from Kellie White set up a chance for newcomer Georgina Parker, but her reverse stick effort was deflected away from the target thanks to a last-ditch tackle.  This was immediately followed by a penalty corner flick from Anna Flanagan, which brought a decent glove save from Dutch keeper Floortje Engels mid-way through the half.

Australia’s best chance to pull a goal back came from Emily Hurtz, who bravely threw herself to the floor and slapped a shot towards goal, but Netherlands keeper Engels made a fantastic body block to keep maintain the two-goal cushion.  

The match was effectively finished as a contest on the arrival of The Netherlands’ third goal, which came in the 57th minute. Wieke Dijkstra was the scorer, showing quick thinking to turn at the top of the circle before crashing a reverse stick shot beyond unsighted Australia keeper Toni Cronk.  

The win means that The Netherlands finish Day 1 at the top of Pool B thanks to their superior goal difference over Germany, who recorded a 1-0 win over New Zealand earlier in the day.
