Butturini still in hunt for gold

MATTHEW Butturini remained scoreless for the second time in the men's hockey at the London Olympics as the Kookaburras drew their second match for the tournament.

Russell Ford had two goals and Mark Knowles scored one in the three-all draw with the hosts Great Britain on Sunday.

Australia was up 3-0 late in the second half, but Great Britain came back with three quick goals to level the match.

The hosts made the most of their opportunities with only eight shots at goal compared to 13 from Australia.

Former Burringbar Waratahs player Butturini played 49 minutes in the game against the hosts and had two shots on the goal.

The draw keeps the Kookaburras at the top of its pool on its goals for-and-against record, with one game to play against third placed Pakistan at 6.45pm on Tuesday (AEST).
