The Hockeyroos will appear at an 11th straight Olympic Games after booking their place at Tokyo 2020 with a resounding 5-0 win in the second and final qualifier against Russia tonight.
The result gave the Hockeyroos a 9-2 victory on aggregate to ensure they will join the Kookaburras in representing Australia at next year’s Games.
After a 4-2 win in the opening game yesterday, the overall result was decided inside the opening half of tonight’s second match as all of the goals came in the first 30 minutes.
Mariah Williams scored a brace while Grace Stewart, Sophie Taylor and Emily Chalker also got on the score sheet.
“I feel really happy for the girls,” said Head Coach Paul Gaudoin after the win
The partnership between mining industry leader Ausdrill and the world number two ranked Hockeyroos has been further strengthened with a new two year contract renewal that will take the partnership past a decade. Ausdrill’s association with Australia’s national hockey teams first began in 2011, and its continuation as the Official Naming Rights Partner of the Hockeyroos and the Official Supporting Partner of the Kookaburras will take the partnership up to 2021. In addition to valuable funding for the Hockeyroos and Kookaburras High Performance Program, the partnership also encompasses a range of other benefits.
