27 July, 2014 – (ISN) The National Hockey Centre is cold and wet this morning, or as we say in Glasgow – dreich.  Scotland’s women started the day with the challenging proposition of Australia and within 3 minutes they were behind to a Jodie Kenny penalty corner.

Scotland pushed for an equaliser and instead found themselves going further behind thanks to an Ashleigh Nelson effort and another Jodie Kenny penalty corner. 

Day 4- Hockey - Sco v Aus-28

This effort from Flanagan struck the upright – Andy Laing/ISN

In the 2nd half Kenny added to her reputation as a prolific penalty corner scorer with a 3rd penalty corner goal, giving Australia a 4-0 advantage over the hosts.

A brace from Anna Flannagan pushed the gap to 6-0 as the hosts moved from being beaten to suffering an embarrassment in front of the home crowd at Glasgow Green.

By full time the world number 1 Australians had stretched the lead to 9-0, ex-England player Mel Clewlow summarised the match perfectly: “its just wave after wave of Australian pressure.”
