Sydney and Perth to host home FIH Pro League matches in 2020

Author: Nic Kerber

The Hockeyroos and Kookaburras will play feature international matches in Sydney and Perth next year after the cities were announced to host Australia’s home double headers in the FIH Pro League 2020.

Tickets to all home matches are on sale now through Ticketek.

Sydney will play host to a blockbuster Australia Day weekend of fixtures against fellow world hockey powerhouse Belgium on 25/26 January.

This will be followed by back-to-back double headers at the Sydney Olympic Park Hockey Centre against Great Britain, who are the current Olympic women’s hockey goal medalists. 

Attention then turns to Perth where the Kookaburras and Hockeyroos will take on Argentina on 6/7 March before playing their final matches of the global competition against cross Tasman rivals New Zealand on 16/17 May. 

Sydney and Perth both hosted home matches in the inaugural season of the Pro League.

“These home matches in Sydney and Perth provide a great opportunity for not only the hockey community but the Australian sporting public to see our elite national teams in action,” said Hockey Australia CEO Matt Favier.

Former Hockeyroo to receive special recognition

Author: Nic Kerber

Two time Olympian and gold medal winning Hockeyroo Alison Peek OAM is set to be inducted into the South Australian Sporting Hall of Fame.

Peek, who made 222 appearances and scored six goals for the Hockeyroos in an international career spanning 12 years, will be one of seven sporting icons to be officially inducted at the South Australian Sport Awards & Hall of Fame Dinner to be held on Friday 22 November at the Adelaide Oval.

The midfielder was the 331st player capped for the Hockeyroos having made her debut together with Christine Dobson, Juliet Haslam, Lisa Powell and Danni Roche on 17 June 1989 against New Zealand in Brisbane.

After competing at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, Peek was part of the Hockeyroos team that won gold in Sydney in 2000.

Side were level from the previous night when they met in Energia Park this evening. Ireland the more dominant on night one of the double header threatened from the start, with the opening chance of the game coming from Anna O’Flanagan, unfortunately going wide. Canada came back with penalty corner at 7 minutes. McFerran saved and a scramble ensued, with Mullan pushing the rebound out of the circle to be taken back up the pitch. Hawkshaw was solid up near Canada circle, with Tice strong in defence later in Q1 when Canada threaten 13 minutes in. The sides remained level in the first quarter with neither team adding to the score board.

Wilson, Duke and Colvin started off strong in the second quarter to get things going, however Duke was on the receiving end of a Green Card shortly after. Canada appeared to have more chances throughout the second quarter, however none prevailed. A bounce over Mullan’s stick skimmed the back of it before she circled it expertly around her opponent and found a Canadian foot. The awarding penalty corner awarded to Ireland was overturned by the video umpire for a back-stick.

Canada failed to convert a huge chance in the third quarter to put themselves on the scoreboard. A penalty corner for Ireland failed to convert in the final quarter, and the sides remained level going into the final minute. Canada were awarded two consecutive penalty corners in the final minute of the game. The final hooter went with level sides still. A penalty shoot-out was to decide the fate of both teams. 

Penalty shoot-out saw Ireland down 3 – 1 at one point. However, the team held their nerve with Bethany Barr bringing them back up to 3 – 2 down. Chloe Watkins brought the equaliser and Canada’s Johnston was denied by McFerran, taking them to sudden death. The packed house in Energia Park held it’s breath. 

Roisin Upton slipped by Williams and put the ball across the line for Ireland, surviving a video referral. Woodcroft failed to take her shot before the 8 seconds were up, and Ireland secured their ticket to Tokyo. The first Irish Women’s Hockey team to do so ever.

Hockeyroos qualify for Tokyo 2020

Hockeyroos qualify for Tokyo 2020

Author: Nic Kerber

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.

“They worked really hard and it has been a massive year. We didn’t quite get there (against New Zealand) in Rockhampton but now we can focus our preparations on Tokyo.

“From here we’ve got to make sure we’re as prepared as we can be leading up to the Olympics.

“It was pleasing that we managed to finish off with some quality goals in the first half but our ball handling needs to get better as well as our fitness.”
