Black Sticks take another drubbing
Sat, 23 Jun 2012 11:08p.m.
Australia's men claimed another decisive victory over the New Zealand Black Sticks in Cairns, winning 5-1.
It’s the second loss in a row for the Black Sticks who have now had 11 goals put past them by Australia in this series.
The recent Azlan Shah Tournament winners played a more up-tempo game than in their 6-1 loss on Friday night, but couldn’t handle the attacking prowess of midfielder Rob Hammond and striker Jason Wilson.
The Black Sticks single goal came as Australia subbed their goalkeeper in favour of a field player as they continued to experiment in the lead up to London.
Forward Stephen Jenness broke through the Kookaburra defences to slot it in after 24 minutes.
The match developed into a dour defensive affair in the second half with Australia needing to work hard for their three goals, but keeping the Kiwis at bay.
The third test is in Cairns on Monday night.
