Match Review

Australia cruised to the top of Pool C after celebrating an easy 6-0 win over Russia at Women’s ERGO Hockey Junior World Cup in Mönchengladbach. While Australia, New Zealand and India are vying for the quarter-final spots, Russia’s chances are over after suffering their second defeat.

Australia deserved their 6-0 victory over Russia, dominating play throughout the match. Madison Fitzpatrick scored an early penalty corner goal before Murphy Allendorf doubled the lead. Goals from Kathryn Slattery, Fitzpatrick and today’s team captain Emily Smith secured a convincing 5-0 halftime score.

In the second half Viktoriia Alexandrina replaced Olga Chugunova in the Russian goal. The Jillaroos attacked with passion and purpose but Alexandrina made a few tremendous saves to keep the score at 5-0. However, Fitzpatrick eventually defeated the Russian goalkeeper when scoring from another penalty corner in 52nd minute. 16 year-old Fitzpatrick, contributing three goals today, is the youngest member in the Jillaroo squad.

Russia, who are yet to score in this tournament, won a single penalty corner with 21 minutes remaining on the clock. Australia’s defence was reduced to three defenders after Jane Claxton was sent back for breaking early. Russia provided a variation but struggled to control the ball in the important moments.     

Voice after the match:

Despite this win, Australian coach Craig Victory wasn't very happy with his team's performance:
"We were really flat today. I think intensity wasn't there, movement ahead of the ball wasn't there, ballspeed wasn't there, we are capable a lot more. So it's a little bit disappointing in that respect. We are looking forward to Tuesday's game against New Zealand."
