Scotland Women will have to wait until Wednesday to discover in which classification match they will be playing after they lost 2-0 to Australia on Tuesday in their final Gold Coast Commonwealth Games pool game.
Scotland are currently third but a Canadian win over Ghana would relegate Scotland to fourth in their pool.
Australia’s win ensured that they topped the pool and will play India in the semi-final. England earned a semi-final matchup with New Zealand after India beat South Africa 1-0, England topping their pool on goal difference.
Scotland lost out to two moments of Australian magic, Jodie Kenny converting a 12th minute penalty corner into the top right corner of the goal and a breakaway attack in the 41st minute.
The Tartan Hearts will be kicking themselves as the second goal came following a restart on the 23 metre line when Scotland were in possession. Australia received the ball behind the 23 metre line and advanced with a flowing passing move which caught the Scottish defence cold.
Savannah Fitzpatrick made the final pass for Grace Stewart to sweep the ball into the net and virtually seal the win.
Scotland inexplicably lost their right to a video referral challenging a decision which had already resulted in a penalty corner being awarded in their favour. But in spite of a couple of losses of concentration, Scotland competed well with the Hockeyroos and will learn from the experience.
Surbiton’s Robyn Collins was in the Scottish starting lineup.
