Australia women’s hockey team rallied to sneak past England 4-2 in the Four Nations Women’s Hockey Tournament being played in Bremen, Germany.

The fourth ranked Aussies eves came out fighting in the second half with Anna Flanagan converting two penalty corners to put them ahead. Georgie Parker enhanced the lead to put her side in the box seat.
England reduced the margin in the 66th minute through Alex Danson and looked poised to go for the kill, but Australia scored in the final minute of play through Jodie Kenny to sew up a 4-2 win. In the other game of the day Germany scraped past Japan 1-0.
