Agency CANBERRA: The Indian junior women’s hockey team rallied to hold hosts Australia to a 1-1 draw in their second match of the Three-Nation tournament here on Thursday. The home side took the lead through a field goal by Schonell Courtney in the 25th minute, but India found the equaliser with Gagandeep Kaur converting a penalty stroke in the 52nd minute. The Indian team started the first quarter on an aggressive note and got into terrific positions to find openings. Their strikers stuck to their plans and earned a penalty corner in the 10th minute. However, the Australian defence stood tall and ensured that the two teams stayed level. The visitors continued to attack and won another penalty corner just before the break, but the home team managed to keep India at bay and ended the quarter at 0-0.
