THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Defending champion Australia got off to a winning start Saturday at the field hockey World Cup, overwhelming Malaysia in the second half to win 4-0.

In the other men's matches, John-John Dohmen grabbed a last-minute winner as Belgium edged India 3-2 and Spain held England to a 1-1 draw on the opening day of the tournament in The Hague.

Glenn Turner opened the scoring for Australia in the first half of the tournament's first match. Malaysia managed to hold back the Australian tide until the break before Eddie Ockcenden had an early contender for goal of the tournament in the 50th minute as he dribbled in from the right wing before drilling a backhand shot past Kumar Subramiam in the Malaysian goal. Jamie Dwyer added the third before Turner completed the rout with his second.

Australia's women also won their first match, beating South Korea 3-2 after falling behind early. New Zealand's women raced to a four-goal lead over Belgium before conceding three in a 10-minute spell in the second half and then holding on for a 4-3 victory.

Olympic women's champion the Netherlands outclassed Japan 6-1 in the day's final match, with Kelly Jonker scoring a hat trick.
