New Zealand – Australia – Match Facts

The first period of the match started rather slowly, with just nine shots on goal by both teams overall. However, New Zealand took the lead, when Frances Coup had the first successful attempt in the 16th minute. New Zealand felt very agile in the second period and created much more opportunities. Even though Katie Wright had two goals for Australia, the “Kiwis”  were in control. Two goals each by Coup and the dynamic Ashley Geusebroeck were the foundation to six New Zealand goals in the second period. Even though Australia tried to push, New Zealand was simply the better team, also winning the third period by 3-1. The overall score of this battle was 10-3 in favor for New Zealand, which finally forced Australia taking the last spot in this round robin group together with Singapore and Germany.
