Australia is into the final of the Men's Hockey after posting a comfortable 6-0 win over Malaysia.

Malaysia's tight coverage of the goal circle in the first half prevented Australia from capitalising on eight attacks on goal and converting a penalty corner.

Australian captain Brent Livermore opened the scoring, converting a controversial penalty stroke in the 31st minute of play.

The second half began with a more attacking style from the Australians, resulting in Livermore converting a second penalty stroke in the 42nd minute.

Throughout the second half, Malaysia had trouble getting ahead, as the Australian defence picked off any Malaysian attack at will.

Captain Livermore saying, “it was a bit hard for Malaysia.”

“We put a solid performance in the first half and stuck to the game plan.” He said.

The Australians are excited about the final and all ready to vie for the gold.

“Everyone is fit and healthy. We’re really looking forward to Sunday,” Livermore said.

In the classification matches, Canada defeated Trinidad and Tobago 2-0. This is Canada’s first win in the Commonwealth Games and secured a ninth-place finish.

The Canadian captain Paul Wettlaufer said his team would gain confidence from their Games experience heading into this year’s World Cup qualifier.
