Williams has shut-out as Matildas make Final

Australia has reached the Final of the Peace Queen Cup after defeating Chinese Taipei 1-0 in their second fixture of the tournament in Suwon, South Korea yesterday.

Australia has reached the Final of the Peace Queen Cup after defeating Chinese Taipei 1-0 in their second fixture of the tournament in Suwon, South Korea yesterday. A solitary goal to Katie Gill in the 12th minute proved enough for Tom Sermanni-s team to advance to the showdown where they will meet the winner of Group A.

Canberra United goalkeeper Lydia Williams kept a clean sheet in her first start of the tournament as Sermanni made several changes from the team that comprehensively saw off Mexico in the Group B opener. Australia dominated proceedings and took the lead early on when Gill headed home from a Tameka Butt corner following explosive work on the flank by Elise Kellond-Knight.

The Perth Glory striker may have had a double to her name in the second half as another firm header, this time from a Collette McCallum free-kick, left the Chinese Taipei ‘keeper floundering but came back off the crossbar.

In Group A hosts South Korea held England to a 0-0 draw earning their second point of the tournament. The draw means that the winner of the England v New Zealand match on the 21st October will meet Australia on the Final.
