Cup spot for Hockeyroos
THE Hockeyroos have qualified for the 2018 World Cup and finished in fifth place at the World League semi- final in Brussels yesterday after defeating Italy 3- 1.
They had to come from behind to do it though.
Italy struck first in the fifthversus- sixth playoff when Federica Carta flicked the ball into the back of the net in the opening quarter.
Not long into the second quarter Australia found the equaliser with Kathryn Slattery tapping straight into goal after work down the pitch from Jordyn Holzberger.
Australia edged into the lead for the first time when Georgie Morgan scored from a penalty corner to make it 2- 1.
Finally the Hockeyroos sealed it when Madi Ratcliffe came through and scored on a deflection.
