Dwyer hits hat-trick as Australia thrash Pakistan
Australia 6-1 Pakistan

Australia made it three wins out of three with their biggest ever Champions Trophy victory over Pakistan here on day three at the Owen G Glenn FIH Champions Trophy.  2011 FIH Player of the Year nominees Jamie Dwyer and Eddie Ockenden were amongst the scorers, with Dwyer helping himself to a hat-trick to take his tournament tally to six. The Kookaburras will go into next phase as winners of Pool A, and will take some stopping in the Championship stages.   

Dwyer opened the scoring the 22nd minute of the match when his speculative cross within the circle was inadvertently diverted into his own net by Pakistan keeper Salman Akbar. Their advantage was doubled four minutes from the end of the half when Eddie Ockenden lashed home a powerful reverse stick effort to provide some breathing space.

Australia blasted out of the blocks in the second half, laying siege to the Pakistan goal. Luke Doerner brought a good save from Akbar from a penalty corner, but when a second was awarded Doerner sent his effort just inside the right post to give Australia a 3-0 lead. Jamie Dwyer then claimed his second of the game with a sublime touch on a cross from the left before completing his hat-trick was a calm finish from close range. Mark Patterson crashed home a sixth from a tight angle before Pakistan scored a consolation goal in the 6th minute thanks to a penalty corner from Muhammad Zubair.
