Ninth-ranked Korea gave top-ranked Australia a stern test before eventually succumbing to the mighty Kookaburras, who claimed a 4-2 win to move top of the Hero Hockey World League 2016 league table on goal difference ahead of India. 

Australian goals either side of half time from Blake Govers and Eddie Ockenden were cancelled out by strikes from Kim Juhun and Lee Jungjun, the latter effort being so close to the edge of the scoring circle that the Kookaburras lodged what proved to be an unsuccessful video umpire referral. However, the Australians stepped up their game in the final quarter to score twice through Trent Mitton and Glenn Turner to seal the win and move top of the table going into Sunday’s competition rest day. 

“We didn’t get off to the best of starts but it started to open up after the first goal and we stuck to the game plan”, said Kookaburras striker Blake Govers. “They came back with their goal from the video referral, but at the end of the day we stuck to our guns and came away with the win.” 

Regarding Australia’s chances of winning the Hero Hockey Champions Trophy 2016, the 19-year-old striker said: “We’ve been playing some really good hockey but its about putting it in the net at the other end. We are going pretty well and feeling pretty confident going into our match against Germany on Monday after the rest day.”
