Men’s ‘Good Luck Beijing’ title to Australia
13 Aug 2007 14:48
 


The men’s team of Australia followed the Hockeyroos by claiming the gold medal at the ’Good Luck Beijing’ tournament, the Olympic test event here in Beijing, China on Monday. The Kookaburras nailed host China 9-0 in the final.

Pakistan won the bronze medal after a 4-1 victory against Malaysia. In earlier action, Australia won the women’s gold, winning 5-3 against China after penalty stroke competition.

The final was the easiest match for Australia in the ‘Good Luck Beijing’ tournament, although it took a while before the Kookaburras were able to open the score. Matthew Naylor put the 1-0 on the scoreboard in the 19th minute.

This was the sign for Australia to control the match. Three minutes later, Aaron Hopkins scored the Australian second goal. China kept hoping on better times, but the hopes of the hosts were quickly finished in the beginning of the second half. Australia scored six times in less than 20 minutes and sailed to the victory. Grant Schubert finally put the 9-0 on the scoreboard in the last minute of the match.
