The New Zealand women's hockey team has scored its first victory at the Championship Trophy in Argentina, beating China 3-2.

The result puts the Black Sticks into the play-off for 5th against Japan.

China led 2-nil until Cathryn Finlayson scored twice in the last 10 minutes to force golden goal extra time.

Stacey Michelsen then converted New Zealand's first penalty corner of the tournament with just seconds remaining on the clock.
