South Korea, the winner of this tournament in 2004 and 2013, ranked second in Group A after Australia with 2 wins and 1 loss in the group stage of this tournament and advanced to the semifinals, but lost 0-3 to North Korea and failed to advance to the finals.

Australia lost 1-5 to Japan in the semifinals.

Korea, which lost 1-2 to Australia in the group stage, took revenge with Hong Chae-bin (Korea University) as the center and Park Su-jeong (Ulsan National University of Science) and Jo Hye-young (Gwangyang Girls’ High School) as the center.

Korea knocked on the goal with 8 shots and 4 effective shots (1 Australian shot, 0 effective shots) against Australia, who were closely matched in ball possession in the first half.
