Ice Blacks beat Australian counterparts

September 13, 2017

New Zealand have enjoyed a rare ice hockey win over Australia with a 4-1 win in the opening game of the Trans-Tasman series in Queenstown.

The Ice Blacks had won just one of their previous 15 games over the Mighty Roos and shot out to a three nil lead midway through the game.

Australian coach Brad Vigon said his world No.33 side was punished for their mistakes.

“We knew they were going to come out hard,” he said.

Game two of the three-match series is on Friday.
