Big win for Australia

TERRASSA : Australia thrashed Argentina 6-0 while Spain snatched a 3-2 last-gasp win over Pakistan in the men's Champions Trophy field hockey tournament here on Thursday.

Luke Doerner made no mistake with three penalty corner conversions while field goals from Grant Schubert, Michael Boyce and Michal McCann put the result well beyond reach.

In an earlier match, Spain seemed in control 2-1 thanks to a field goal and a penalty conversion by Santiago Freixa with just two minutes left on the clock.

But then Sohail Abbas pulled level with a penalty corner conversion after Akhtar Ali had opened Pakistan's scoring with a deflection at the right post on a cross by Muhammad Saqlain.

However, Spanish captain Francisco Fabregas took a free hit outside the circle to Sergi Enrique whose shot high into the goal had the hometown crowd celebrating.

The results:

Pakistan 2 (Akhtar Ali 29, Sohail Abbas 68) lost to Spain 3 (Santiago Freixa 10, 60; Sergi Enrique 70).

Australia 6 (Schubert 19, Doerner 28, 32, 60, Boyce 44, McCann 66) bt Argentina 0. — Agencies
