Australia produced a solid 6-1 win over India in their first match of Women’s ERGO Hockey Junior World Cup. The Jillaroos are ranked second in pool C now while India are currently third.
Kathryn Slattery took the lead for her Jillaroos when scoring from open play in the 17th minute. Slattery's lead was doubled by Murphy Allendorf three minutes later. India took advantage when Australia were short in numbers as Amelia Spence was sitting on the sin-bin. Anupa Barla got India on the score board making the result 1-2. However, it did not take long until the Jillaroos scored again. Madison Fitzpatrick lifted the result to 3-1 with four minutes remaining on the clock.
The second half saw Australia’s Broke Peris and Anna Flanagan, FIH Young Player of the Year, being on target. First Peris scored from a penalty corner followed by Flanagan’s penalty stroke goal.
The young Indian team worked hard to get back into the game but the strong Jillaroos team, containing five members of the Hockeyroos squad that recently won the Investec Hockey World League Semi-Final in London, did not give them much space. However, India were able to win two more penalty corners but both were saved by Elizabeth Duguid in the Australian goal.
With less than 90 seconds remaining on the clock, Peris added another one securing a solid 6-1 win to start into the tournament with.
Voices after the match:
Neil Hawgood, Coach India: "For us, the result is qute bad, but the girls played a good game. We have failed to score more goals. Our only mistake was that we did not score timely. Our goal is to at least reach the semi-finals, and I think we can still do this."
Craig Victory, Coach Australia: "We still have a lot of work to do. We worked really hard. We need to sustain 70 minutes, but today we only worked for maybe 50 minutes. It's very important thatwe look from game to game. The atmosphere here is fantastic and the stadium is lovely. We're excited to be here!"
