England take fifth with defeat of Australia

5th – 6th Classification: England 2-0 Australia

England finished their Rabo FIH Champions Trophy campaign on a high with a second successive victory over Australia to take fifth place here in Amstelveen.

Beckie Herbert put England into a deserving lead in the first half when she fired into an open goal after great work from Anna Bennett, before Chloe Rogers touched home a second following a penalty corner strike from Laura Unsworth. The result means that England have qualified for next year’s Champions Trophy tournament, which takes place in Rosario, Argentina.  

England needed just eight minutes to open the match scoring when a Helen Richardson pass found Anna Bennett in front of goal. The 35-year-old showed a sharp mind and a cool touch to flick the ball past Australia keeper Rachael Lynch to the waiting Beckie Herbert who slapped the ball into an open goal.

The lead was no more than they deserved, and Danny Kerry’s women continued to dominate in the contest throughout the first half. The great speed of Herbert, Bennett, Alex Danson and Chloe Rogers was a potent weapon for England, but The Hockeyroo were excellent in defence.

England had the chance to double the lead on the stroke of half time, but the Australian defence coped well with the attempted drag flick from Kate Walsh.   

Australia hammered away at the England defence early in the second half, and were given the opportunity to draw level when they won a penalty corner. However, the flick from Jodie Shultz was bravely charged down by onrushing England captain Kate Walsh. A second Australian penalty corner arrived moments later courtesy of a video umpire referral, but the flick from Schulz was comfortably saved by England keeper Beth Storry.

England soaked up the pressure before eventually winning a penalty corner in the 50th minute thanks to excellent work in the circle from Nicola White.  The initial penalty corner routine broke down, but Laura Unsworth cracked a shot goalwards from the top of the circle that was touched into the net by Chloe Rogers to make the score 2-0. It was a heartbreaking moment for Australia, with the strike coming very much against the run of play.

Australia continued their assault on the England goal for the remainder of the match, but could find no way past the ever impressive Beth Storry.

England finished the Rabo FIH Champions Trophy having not conceded a single penalty corner goal - a remarkable achievement.
