However, Lena Frerichs was satisfied with the performance. “We started well and the second half rewarded us,” said the Bremen player: “But we conceded too much at the end of the game. It's a shame not to get the lucky punch, then we're unlucky. The shootout was lost.”

Hannah Granitsky (36th) and captain Nike Lorenz (39th) put the German Hockey Association (DHP) ahead on a penalty corner opportunity. Tatum Stewart (35th/penalty) and Jane Claxton (51st) equalized for Australia. Linnea Weidmann, Benedetta Wenzel and Sonja Zimmermann scored for Germany in the shootout.

First on the agenda for DHB Women in London is a revenge against Australia (Tuesday). This will be followed by a clash with China on Wednesday at the end of England's Olympic preparations. A medal at the Summer Games in Paris (July 26 to August 11) after a fourth place finish in Tokyo in 2021.
