Hockeyroos End Home & Away Matches With Loss To Dutch

The Hockeyroos finished the home & away stage of the FIH Pro League with a 3-1 defeat to the minor premiers Netherlands in Amstelveen on Sunday.

The world champions, buoyed by a loud crowd all in orange showed why they have not lost a single match since their defeat in Melbourne in February.

Rachael Lynch made two impressive saves early - her second in particular a highlight. As the Netherlands streamed forward into the circle, the cross would have gone straight to the waiting forward but for a diving interception by Australia’s most capped keeper.

Late Goal Ends Hockeyroos’ Winning Run

Late Goal Ends Hockeyroos’ Winning Run

Author: Mitch Wynd

A 54th minute goal to Ambre Ballenghein has given the Hockeyroos their first defeat of the European leg in Antwerp.

In Savannah Fitzpatrick’s 50th appearance, it was a match for defenders as neither team was really able to take a hold of the contest one way or the other.

The first quarter saw Australia force Belgium into holding possession in the corner at times, with the major moment being Jocelyn Bartram’s goal-line clearance after the ball had taken a deflection between her legs.

Belgium went on the front foot in the second quarter, making a series of attacks that were well repelled by the Australian defenders - and Rachael Lynch made an impressive double save in her record 208th appearance for an Australian goalkeeper.

Delayed Start, Dry Pitch No Issue For Kookaburras

Delayed Start, Dry Pitch No Issue For Kookaburras

Author: Mitch Wynd

A lengthy delay and challenging conditions could not stop the Kookaburras from securing a 4-1 victory over the Netherlands in Amstelveen on Saturday.


The match start was delayed by two hours amidst bizarre scenes - the water system at the Wagener Hockey Stadium failed, requiring the local fire department to step in and water the pitch themselves.


That left pitch conditions less than ideal, but it would be the same challenge facing both teams.


Australia won the first penalty corner of the match five minutes into the match, and Blake Govers duly stepped up and converted the opportunity.

Kookaburras Claim Gutsy Win Over No. 1 Belgium

Kookaburras Claim Gutsy Win Over No. 1 Belgium

Author: Mitch Wynd

The Kookaburras battled through awful weather late in the game to secure a 2-0 win over world number one Belgium, and cement a first-place finish on the FIH Pro League standings.

A double for Blake Govers won the match that in the early stages was dominated by the two goalkeepers at each end.

Australia got off to an attacking start, and a series of early penalty corners put Belgium on the defensive.

Some athletic saves from Vincent Vanasch denied Blake Govers twice from the penalty corner, getting down very low to his right.
