Hockeyroos beat USA in Hobart

NSWIS scholarship holders Abigail Wilson, Maddison Smith, Grace Young and Greta Hayes took part in the Hockeyroos 2-1 victory over the USA in Hobart on Saturday.

The match – Australia’s final game of the FIH Pro League ‘mini tournament’ in Hobart – was won in the second last minute of play courtesy of Victoria’s Amy Lawton’s stunning strike.

The Hockeyroos were well served by Wilson, especially in the opening quarter when she forced a number of turnovers. Hayes made Australia’s intentions clear early in the match by testing the USA’s goalkeeper.

A fifth NSWIS scholarship holder, Zoe Newman, was in the squad but didn’t play. The Hockeyroos will play a three-match Test series against China in Perth later this month.
