Westfield Under 16's march on

The Australian Under 16 women's team, the Westfield U16s, have secured their second win in three days by defeating Myanmar 4-0 in hot and humid conditions in Kuala Lumpur.

The Australian Under 16 women's team, the Westfield U16s, have secured their second win in three days by defeating Myanmar 4-0 in hot and humid conditions in Kuala Lumpur.

The Westfield U16 Women showed they have adapted to the conditions in Malaysia by scoring after just three minutes of play with Samantha Kerr confidently sending home Australia-s first.

Although the remainder of the first half finished without a goal, Australia clearly controlled the majority of play.

Despite a defensive game from Myanmar, Australia persevered until Tara Andrews delivered Australia-s second in the 48th minute.

Tiegen Allen converted an opportunity in the 60th minute to take the score to 3-0 and Nicola Bolger sealed the win for Australia in the 74th minute with the fourth and final goal of the match.

“It was a professional performance against a tricky opposition,” said coach, Gary Phillips.

“We had a few players who performed exceptionally well and I look forward to continuing to build on the strength of these last two performances for our next match against Philippines.”

Australia takes on the Philippines next Saturday.
