Hockey: Indian women lose 0-1 to USA in quarterfinal

Glasgow, May 2 (PTI): The Indian women’s hockey team put up a tough fight but eventually ran out of steam, losing 0-1 to USA in the quarterfinal of the Champions Challenge 1 in Glasgow on Friday.

In the first half, Katie O’Donnell was the driving force behind the USA team, but all too often her teammates were sloppy with the final ball, and the young India side took full advantage.

Ritu Rani, the India captain was a creative force in midfield and tried to create some moves but opposition’s defence denied any scoring chances.

In the 60th minute, Dawson took the opportunity and successfully converted the penalty corner for USA. Seconds later Paige Selenski had the chance to double the lead for USA, but Indian goalkeeper made a good save this time.

India got a chance to level the score in the last minute but the penalty corner strike hit the cross—bar.

India will play their next match against Belgium on Saturday.
