A determined Indian Women’s Hockey Team slipped to their first defeat of South Korea Tour as the hosts registered 2-1 victory over the visitors in the third match of the five-match series here at the Jinchun National Athletic Centre on Thursday.

Two goals in the first quarter from South Korea’s Seul Ki Cheon (12′) and Yurim Lee (14′) were enough for the hosts as India’s fightback, led by Lalremsiami’s goal in the 16th minute, was not enough on the day.

The win for South Korea means that India still maintain a 2-1 lead in the five-match series with two matches to play.

Indian Women’s Hockey team will play their fourth match of the five match series against South Korea on Friday.
