Hope Munro 44 (F)







In the third of five Test Matches, a large home crowd witnessed an even first half with chances for both teams but it was only Australia who were able to take advantage.


Sarah Thomas had the first chance for GB in the seventh minute when she had a free run into the circle but put the shot wide.

Australia won two penalty corners in the 13th and 24th minute but were unable to capitalise. They did however take advantage in the 16th minute when Teneal Attard scored after Australia were allowed to keep possession and dribble into the GB circle eliminating a number of defenders.

Both sides continued to work their patterns, but GB were unable to create real goalscoring opportunities despite some promising build up play.

In the second half Australia started strongly and won a PC in the 40th minute which was charged down by Crista Cullen. The resulting play saw GB win a PC at the other end which was well saved from a Cullen drag flick. A minute later, Danson shot high over the bar before Australia extended their lead in the 44th minute from another field goal when the GB defence, unable to clear in the circle, allowed Hope Munro to pounce on the ball and send a hard flick past Roberts from short range.

GB continued to press forward with good build up play but too often the final pass went astray. In the last 10 minutes GB built up heavy pressure forcing Australia back. The Aussies however held out to win the third test 2-0 and go three up in the series.

Head Coach Danny Kerry said “This was a tight game which was decided on details and some quality Australian finishing. We are pleased with many aspects of our play and with much hard work, we can turn the detail around. The quality of the matches is far beyond what the players normally experience back home and we have made some fantastic games.”
