Bathurst is never an easy opponent, and they step up another notch when playing in front of a home crowd.
With a match already under their belt, Sydney started well, and Craig Boorman slotted home a penalty corner in the sixth minute. Despite Sydney dominating the play for the duration of the half, the scoreer wasn't troubled any further in the first half.
Craig Boorman doubled his match tally early in the second half giving Sydney a two goal buffer which Teaj Sian extended to three goals when he slammed one home from a penalty corner rebound.
As had been the case in all their matches, Sydney went to sleep for a period in the second half and Bathurst capitalised on defensive frailties by earning a penalty corner which they scored from.
Sydney took all three points and topped the pool with 10 of a possible 12 points. However if they continue to fall asleep in the second half, the opponent(s) that lie ahead in the playoffs will punish them.
