Australia (FIH Hero World Ranking 3) and USA (WR: 7) played out an entertaining 2-2 draw in the opening match of the Women’s Hockey Champions Trophy 2016, being played at the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre in London.

The Hockeyroos (FIH Hero World Ranking: 3) scored the first goal of the competition two minutes before the end of the first quarter in an evenly contested game, with Kathryn Slattery firing through the legs of USA keeper Jackie Briggs before Jill Witmer levelled with a brilliant volley after her initial effort hit the crossbar of the Australian goal. The Oceania champions moved ahead again three minutes after half time when Grace Stewart netted, but Caitlin van Sickle sealed a point for the Pan American champions with a fourth quarter strike.

“I was really pleased with the performance”, said Hockeyroos Head Coach Adam Commens after the match. “We played a couple of practice matches in the lead up and they were very inconsistent in the way that we played, there were patches of good stuff there, but I thought today was a much more consistent and comprehensive performance. We created a lot of chances.”

USA captain Lauren Crandall said: “I’m always happy to take one point, although you always want three but we’ll take one away from it and there are some good lessons moving forward. I think we came out a little slower than we wanted, but the important thing is that we built on every quarter and we showed a lot of resilience out there, which is something that we really pride ourselves on.”
