India were awarded their first penalty corner in the 33rd minute and after a bit of a scramble, Poonam Rani managed to slot the ball home with some help from Kenny, whose pushed the ball further into the goal. In the same minute, Australia were on the charge once again and the ball yet again found an Indian foot inside the circle to hand Australia another penalty corner.

A word of appreciation for India as they had positioned themselves brilliantly behind each Australian player and prevented them from scoring any field goals. They conceded a total of 9 penalty corners, which proved way too costly for the Indians.
