The Indian senior women’s hockey team put up a spirited display before going down fighting to Korea 2-4 in their opening Pool A match of the FIH Champions Challenge 1 tournament in Glasgow, Scotland.

Vandana Katariya gave Indian an early lead, but Korea hit back in the 14th minute via Mihyun Park. The Koreans scored twice in the first half to lead 3-1 at the break.
