22:52, Jul 13 2014

The Black Sticks women's hockey team have continued their impressive buildup to the Commonwealth Games by thrashing Chile 10-0 in Dublin today.

The landslide win continued New Zealand's dominance at the Four Nations tournament in Ireland.

Chile employed a packed defence and managed to hold out the Kiwis until the 18th minute before the floodgates opened with the Black Sticks attacking at every opportunity.

Katie Gylnn claimed a hat-trick and Anita Punt and Olivia Merry scored two goals each.

New Zealand had earlier thumped hosts Ireland 9-2 in their opening match.

The Kiwis have a rest day tomorrow before playing Canada on Wednesday at 4 am (NZT).
