Australia dominate Pacific teams at Hockey5s competition

The Oceania Intercontinental Hockey5s competition in Sydney Australia continued to provide entertainment and lots of goals.

Samoa and Solomons Men met for the first time for many years and it provided a close tussle. 

At the conclusion of the match it was a 2 all draw.

To find the winner involved the first shootout competition of the tournament.

Exciting goalkeeping kept the score 1-1 as different strikers had their turns however, it was in sudden death that Samoa, in their first Hockey5s shootout broke the deadlock to take the game.

The highlight game in the women's section was the match between Samoa and Fiji. Samoa really challenged Fiji and the match ended 6-4 to Fiji. 

Tonga lost to Australia Country 17-2 while Vanuatu defeated Samoa 14-1.

The Intercontinental Hockey5s offer a fantastic opportunity for the national teams of Fiji, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga and Vanuatu to compete against each other and they are joined by the team representing Australia Country.
