Hockeyroos beat Korea in Perth

The Hockeyroos have defeated Korea 5-0 in the second game of their four-match series in Perth, turning around the previous day’s loss.

The Hockeyroos got off to a good start on Wednesday with a field goal to Casey Eastham in the fifth minute of the match, coming from a cross from Emily Smith.

Megan Rivers and Georgia Nanscawen both played key offensive roles in the first half, proving a handful for the Korean defenders.

The forward pressure forced a second goal for the Hockeyroos through Georgie Parker in the 35th minute.

Eastham continued her excellent 2012 form with a second goal in the 48th minute.

Minutes later Smith converted a field goal in the 51st minute and Fiona Boyce capitalised on a loose ball in the 56th minute.

Hockeyroos head coach Adam Commens said: “It was a much improved performance on yesterday. We created a lot of chances today and the result was justified.”

Australia A again proved too strong for Korean Club team Korea Telecom, with a 3-1 victory in Wednesday’s curtain raiser at Shenton Park.

Australia and Korea play again on Friday night at Perth Hockey Stadium.
