  • Description

    AT LONDON'S WHITE CITY THIS AFTERNOON (SATURDAY), THE ALL ENGLAND WOMEN'S HOCKEY ASSOCIATION HOCKEY INTERNATIONAL GAME ENDED IN A ONE-ALL TIE BETWEEN THE ENGLAND TEAM AND THE AUSTRALIAN TOURING TEAM.

    THE FIRST HALF WAS DOMINATED ALMOST ENTIRELY BY THE VISITING AUSTRALIANS. THEY WERE QUICKER ON THE BALL AND STRONGER ON THE TACKLE - KEEPING THE ENGLISH DEFENCE UNDER CONSTANT AND HEAVY PRESSURE. IN SPITE OF THIS, THEY WERE UNABLE TO SCORE - AND HALFTIME ENDED IN A NIL-NIL TIE.

    IN THE SECOND 35-MINUTE HALF, ENGLAND RECUPERATED AND TOOK THE OFFENSIVE. BUT IT WAS THE AUSTRALIANS WHO SCORED THE FIRST GOAL - ONLY FIVE MINUTES AFTER START OF PLAY - WHEN KAY LEHAMANN TOOK A PENALTY CORNER AND SHOT CLEANLY PAST ENGLAND GOALIE HAZELL FELTWELL.

    ENGLAND CONTINUED ON THE OFFENSIVE - TRYING HARD FOR THE EQUALISER. THEN, WITH A STRONG ATTACK BY THE HOME TEAM'S FORWARDS, CENTRE FORWARD ELIZABETH BOOBIER BROKE THROUGH IN A LIVELY ATTACK AND SCORED THE MUCH-SOUGHT EQUALISER PAST AUSTRALIA'S JUDY HUMPHRIES IN THE GOAL.

    FOLLOWING THE SECOND GOAL - ENGLAND ATTACKED HARD, TRYING FOR A WINNING POINT, BUT THE AUSTRALIAN DEFENCE WAS TOO GOOD AND NEITHER SIDE SCORED AGAIN.
