The second semifinal between Australia and India was also a low-scoring affair, with both sides struggling to break the deadlock.
It took a moment of brilliance from Grace STEWART (AUS) to give her side the lead, as she pounced on an errant pass into the attacking circle to slam home the game’s only goal.
India took its goalkeeper off the field (allowing it to play with 11 outfield players) with four minutes remaining in the second half as it pushed for an equaliser.
But the stoic defence of the Hockeyroos was up to the task, holding strong after some fantastic saves from seasoned goalkeeper Rachael LYNCH (AUS).
