Tom Craig 5’, Tim Brand 12’, Blake Govers 36’, Flynn Ogilvie 40’ rode on goals for Australia.
“It’s a good start to the series. To score two goals in the first quarter was a dream start for us. New Zealand fought hard and we know there is still a lot of hockey in front of us to secure the series,” said Head Coach Colin Batch.
