Bronwen Knox sinks USA with last-gasp penalty goal

La Jolla, USA (July 6).— A final-second penalty goal by Aussie Stinger Bronwen Knox secured a 12-11 women’s water polo victory over world champion United States of America at the Coggan Centre here today.

The win levelled the four-test series between the world’s two best team 1-all with two games remaining.

Knox’s effort gave her four for the match as Australia had to come back from 2-0 down in the opening quarter and 7-4 behind at halftime.

Knox scored the go-ahead goal for 11-10 just before three-quarter time but the USA levelled early in the final quarter.

A nail-biting game ensued as nothing came off for either side until Australia drew the penalty attempt and Knox silenced the capacity home crowd.

Result:
International women’s series, La Jolla, USA: Australia 12 (B Knox 4, M Rippon 3, J Santoromito 2, G Beadsworth, T Gofers, M Santoromito) USA 11. Series tied 1-1.
