Basics was the key for the Aussies to overcome a younger local outfit featuring the likes of national reps, Catherine Thaggard, Maxine Browne, Tiara Dutta, Lala Ravatu and Sarote Nakaora.
The hosts featured other U18 reps and a fairly young group of budding players who were just not able to put away the goals.
