SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 22 2018 SPORT 73 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA attacking circle; its something we will get feedback on. I hope we can get more goals (tonight). Argentina defend pretty well, so it should be a good game. Colin Batchs side hit seven shots on target in the first half, but Arnould was outstanding, restricting the Kookaburras to only one goal in the first 29 minutes. It wasnt until Wotherspoon hit home in the final five first-half seconds that the Kookaburras Eddie Ockenden looks for a teammate during Wednesday nights game against world number 2, Argentina Picture: JUSTIN KENNEDY THREE goals from Dylan Wotherspoon have ensured Australias place in the Darwin International Hockey Open final against Argentina. The Kookaburras performance against Japan last night was more dominant than the 3-0 scoreline suggested, with the visitors failing to sustain any attacking pressure. Australia continually peppered Japans goal, and if not for the fine work of keepers Yuri Arnould and Takashi Yoshikawa, could have finished with six or seven. Speaking to the NT News after the match, Wotherspoon said his side would need to play smarter against Argentina. We got a few goals (last night), but we will have to step up another two levels, the striker said. We are a little bit unhappy with our results in the Kookaburras score spot in Open final hosts doubled their advantage. Tom Craig had a brilliant match through the midfield, sharing a beautiful move with Wotherspoon to notch the Kookaburras second. The duo had earlier combined for the first goal on nine minutes, again through the centre, with Wotherspoon finishing with a classy deflection. Arnould swapped the gloves with Yoshikawa at halftime, but the second choice keeper proved just as resilient. He saved three times in the third quarter, the best from a fierce Joshua Simmonds penalty corner strike. Nothing could be done about Wotherspoons third goal, however, after the forward was brilliantly put through by Kieran Govers in the 48th minute. In the afternoon fixture, Argentina came back from 2-1 down to beat Malaysia 3-2.
