Poor second half hurts Black Sticks women

5:58 pm on 19 January 2012

The New Zealand women's hockey team has lost their opening Test of the Four Nations to hosts Argentina at Cordoba.

The Black Sticks were level at 2-all at half-time but a lack of discipline as well as some soft turnovers cost them against the world's second-ranked side... going down 7-3.

They face Korea tomorrow then England on Saturday before finals day on Sunday.... the Four Nations is a warmup tournament for next week's elite Champions Trophy, also in Argentina at Rosario.
