Germany vs. Australia 3-1 (half-time 1-1)

Australia picked up its first points at the 2012 Olympics after a 3-1 win against Germany. The game was the second surprise of the day in the competitive Group B after the Americans defeated Argentina.

Germany got on the board nine minutes into action, cleanly converting its first penalty corner chance of the game. Katharina Otte played put in the 1-0 goal from the post, silencing the strong contingent of Australian fans.

Australia perked up after falling behind and peppered the German goal. Their efforts were finally reward when Hope Munro tied the game at one after putting in a rebound. This time it was Germany’s turn to bump their efforts up a notch and they did just that, spending the rest of the half, especially the last five minutes keeping Australian goalkeeper Toni Cronk on her toes. But Cronk held her ground and both teams had to settle for a 1.1 draw at the break.

Australia took its first lead of the game 10 minutes into the second half when Anna Flanagan fired the ball into the upper corner of the net on a short corner chance. The lead doubled within another ten minutes when Fiona Boyce deflected in the 3-1 goal on a penalty corner shot by Flanagan.

Australia’s win creates a traffic jam of teams sitting at three points. Argentina, Germany, USA and Australia are all tied with three points in the tightly packed Group B. New Zealand leads the group with six points and South Africa is bringing up the rear with no points.
