USA took the bronze medal with a shootout victory over Australia, giving the team a first Champions Trophy medal since wining bronze at the 1995 Champions Trophy in Mar del Plata, Argentina. 
The Americans bounced back from 2-0 down to level at 2-2 thanks to a double from Katie Bam before USA keeper Jackie Briggs kept a clean sheet against the Hockeyroos to seal a famous victory at the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre in London. 
Mariah Williams gave Australia a 1-0 lead at the end of the first quarter, with a stunning solo goal from Grace Stewart doubling the advantage four minutes after half time. To their great credit, USA never gave up hope of resurrecting their medal hopes and it was the lively Bam who proved to be their inspiration, coming back onto the field after receiving a ten minute yellow card to score a penalty corner and a wonderful diving effort to take the match into a shootout.
Remarkably, USA team captain Melissa Gonzalez scored the only shootout of the contest, with Jackie Briggs proving herself unbeatable in the American goal to give her team a brilliant bronze medal ahead of their Olympic challenge in Rio later this year. 
We are so excited”, said an understandably delighted Jackie Briggs after the match. “It didn’t matter who we played, we just so happy with the result. We worked really hard to keep it at 2-2. I made a few mistakes in the game, but I was just really thankful that the team had my back today and I knew that going into the shootout I just had to keep it out.” 
Hockeyroos Head Coach Adam Commens said: “It’s a disappointing result for us. I think that the frustrating thing about it is that you put in a great performance, and then you let a team into it. It’s something that I’ve spoken about throughout this tournament that we need to be better at and today unfortunately we weren’t as clinical as I would have liked in that last quarter.”
