Hockey: Indian women clinch 3-match series beating S Korea 2-1

 

By Harpal Singh Bedi

India survived some anxious moments before putting it across host Korea 2-1 to record their second straight win in the three-match Women Hockey series in Jincheon (Korea) on Wednesday.

The Visitors overcame a 0-1 deficit through goals by Rani Rampal and Navneet Kaur in the second half.

The Indian women’s hockey team came from a goal down to eke out a close 2-1 win over hosts South Korea in the second game and take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series in Jincheon today.

The Indians had earlier defeated Korea by an identical margin in the opening game of the series.

India will take on Korea in the inconsequential last match of the series on Friday.

In the match today, skipper Rani Rampal (37th minute) and Navjot Kaur (50th) scored for India after Lee Seungju gave South Korea the lead in the 19th minute through a field strike.

India had won the first match by the same margin

In the first quarter, both teams traded penalty corners but could not beat the respective goalkeepers. In the second quarter, the hosts took the lead in the 19th minute through Lee Seungju (1-0)..

It took Indians 18 minutes to equalize through Rani who scored a superb goal. Navjot Kaur scored the second goal in the 50th minute to take the team’s score to 2-1.

Speaking after the match, Chief Coach Sjoerd Marijne said, “Our performance was much better than the first match. Our skill control in today’s game was much better and the quality was good and consistent. I believe we could have scored more goals but the intensity and effort was good from the team.”

He further added that good results from here would boost their confidence for the important FIH Women’s Series Finals Hiroshima 2019. “I am happy with the adjustments the team made. We played our first match just 24 hours after we arrived in Jincheon.

” It is nice we have won two matches in this three-match series. This will surely boost the team’s spirit ahead of the FIH Women’s Series Finals Hiroshima 2019.” Marijne said.
