THE Australian women’s soccer team, featuring Moe-born goalkeeper Teagan Micah, proved too strong for New Zealand in their recent friendly.
The Matildas won 3-1 in front of 13,077 at GIO Stadium, Canberra.
A brace to captain Sam Kerr, with both goals coming before half-time, saw the home side to a 3-0 lead at the main break.
Unfortunately Micah did not get on the pitch, remaining as a sub while first-choice keeper Lydia Williams played on.
The 24-year-old Micah has made nine appearances for the national team.
Micah famously became an overnight sensation after a seven-save performance against Great Britain in the quarter-final at last year’s Olympics.
