USA 1 drew Australia 1
Goals: USA – Tiffany Snow FG 42m, Teneal Attard FG 44m
USFHA: The USA women’s team played a 1-1 draw with long-time rival Australia in the final game of a four-match series at the USA Field Hockey National Training Center in Virginia Beach on Sunday.
After a scoreless first half, Tiffany Snow put the USA on top with her fourth goal of the series in the 42nd minute. Snow's field goal gave the USA only a brief advantage however as Teneal Attard answered for Australia just two minutes later as USA goalkeeper Amy Tran and Australia keeper Toni Cronk kept the game scoreless throughout the rest of regulation play.
The draw was the second of the series between the two teams, after the world's No. 3 ranked Australians and the 10th ranked Americans settled for a 3-3 draw in game one in Virginia Beach. Australia won games two and three 4-0 and 4-2.
The series continued the USA's preparations for next month's Rabobank Hockey Champions Challenge from 8-16 July in Virginia Beach. England, Japan, New Zealand, South Africa and Spain will join the USA in one of the International Hockey Federation's premier events.
