GALLERY: Westfield Matildas run riot in second-half rout

Caitlin Foord clinched a hat-trick as a devastating second half spell helped the Westfield Matildas defeat Chile 5-0 in Newcastle on Tuesday night.

Foord teed up Sam Kerr’s opener before notching a quickfire double herself to rattle Australia’s South American opponents shortly after the half-time interval.

Substitute Emily Gielnik inked her name to the score-sheet before Foord added her third late on as Alen Stajcic’s side delivered the perfect response to Saturday’s defeat to Chile in Penrith.
