Australia’s Netball World Youth Cup team completed a clean sweep of Pool B last night with a victory over South Africa.

The team, captained by Wudinna’s Hannah Petty, added to victories over Zimbabwe, Singapore and Barbados with a 65-36 result against South Africa in a top-of-the-table clash.

Australia was one of three nations, alongside New Zealand and England, to win all four pool matches in Botswana.

That has set up a quarter-final clash against Scotland, who finished second in Pool A.

The match will take place tonight at 9:30pm ACST.
