The Netherlands sealed their place in Sunday’s final at the Women’s Hockey Champions Trophy 2016 in London by defeating Australia 2-1 at the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre in London.

The result moved Oranje onto 12 points from their four games, meaning that they are now guaranteed of a top two finish in the pool phase. The Netherlands victory was also very good news for Argentina, who now cannot be caught by Australia and will therefore meet the Dutch in the gold medal match. The two teams will also meet in their final pool match on Saturday, ensuring that the fans in London will be treated to not one but two potentially thrilling encounters between the top ranked teams in world hockey.

A field goal from Michelle van der Pols gave the Netherlands a sixth minute lead before team captain Maartje Paumen doubled the advantage with her sixth penalty corner goal in just four matches. Kathryn Slattery was on target for the Hockeyroos, who were hugely competitive throughout.

"We played well, but there is always room for improvement”, said Netherlands star Lidewij Welten. “Our aim is to get better with each game, that is our group mentality. It is good for us to play Australia in a tournament like the Champions Trophy because we don't get to play them so often. They didn't surprise us today as we know they want to be fast and attacking, although today neither of us could play our true games."

Australia captain Madonna Blyth said: "We played pretty well for parts of that game. We created good opportunities and put the Dutch under a lot of pressure. There are still a lot of things that we can improve upon, but we are strong as a unit and I am happy with the way we are going."
