The Korean fightback was shortlived as Nicholas Budgeon scored at the stroke of half-time to give the Aussies a one-goal advantage at the break. Jeremy Hayward made it 3-1 in the 59th minute before Matt Ghodes struck twice in the closing stages to give Australia a facile 5-1 win.
Australia had earlier beaten China 7-0, Canada 6-0 and South Africa 7-0, notching up as many as 25 goals in four games leaking only one yesterday. Australia are already assured of a final berth and look set to play hosts Malaysia in a repeat of last year’s edition.
Earlier, Canada notched up their first win in the 23rd Sultan Azlan Shah Cup hockey tournament sneaking past fighting China 4-3 in Ipoh on Thursday.
