AUS v NZL HighlightsPosted June 26, 2015

New Zealand’s Black Sticks took the spoils in a classic Oceania derby match, with the world number 4 defeating 2nd ranked Australia in the final match of the day in Antwerp thanks to goals from Anita Punt and Ella Gunson.

The result puts New Zealand onto nine points at the top of Pool A, three points clear of their Australian rivals. Black Sticks captain Punt’s goal - which came shortly after half time from a trademark penalty corner drag-flick - was her 78th senior international goal, making her New Zealand’s top international scorer of all time.

Despite defeat, it was also a momentous day for Hockeyroos captain Madonna Blyth, who played her 304th senior international match to surpass the Australian women’s national record of 303 previously held by Nikki Hudson.

“We came out with a pretty clear vision about what we wanted to do today but we didn’t do it very well”, said Madonna Blyth after the match. “Credit to New Zealand though, they played at that pace that we all know they can, and we know we have a lot to improve on heading forward into the ‘quarters’ and our next pool match”.

New Zealand’s new all-time record scorer Anita Punt said: “It was a really tough battle but to come away with the win is awesome with the girls. We just had to keep fighting and it was great to get the two goals.”
