The Vantage Black Sticks Men and Women will fight it out against their Australian rivals in tomorrow’s Oceania Cup finals in Sydney.<br>
<br>
The Women play out a rematch against the Hockeyroos at 5pm (NZT) after being edged 2-1 in Saturday night’s round robin clash.<br>
<br>
Australia had the better of the first half and went into the sheds leading 2-0 after goals from Maddy Fitzpatrick and Brooke Peris.<br>
<br>
New Zealand lifted after the break and evened out the game statistics through some great attacking hockey as they hunted for goals.<br>
<br>
A 53<sup>rd</sup> minute field goal from Olivia Merry gave the Kiwis a sniff but the Hockeyroos were able to desperately hold on under huge pressure to take the result.<br>
<br>
Meanwhile, the Vantage Black Sticks Men swept Papua New Guinea 19-0 in their encounter to set up a gold medal match against the Kookaburras at 7:30pm tomorrow (NZT).<br>
<br>
The Kiwis were fuelled by a five goal bag from Sam Lane while Jared Panchia netted four times and Daniel Harris and Cory Bennett both scored doubles.<br>
<br>
New Zealand will be hungry for revenge over the Aussies after being defeated 5-1 by the world number two ranked hosts on Thursday.<br>

Both men’s and women’s Oceania Cup gold medal matches will be streamed live through <a href="http://www.epicentre.tv/">www.epicentre.tv</a><br>
