World no. 3 Hockeyroos went down 0-1 to a fast and physical Great Britain in Bunbury on Sunday.
Despite the loss, Head Coach Adam Commens said “It was a better performance in terms of tiding up our defence and creating more chances today,”.
VIS athlete and Australian goalkeeper Ashlee Wells played a vital on-field role throughout the game.
In the dying stages of the match the Hockeyroos had their chance to equalise the game but unfortunately could not find the back of the net.
Other VIS members of the Australian squad included Laura Barden, Rachael Lynch, and Georgia Nanscawen.
The Hockeyroos will have their chance for redemption this week with a further four opportunities against Great Britain in Perth.
