CWG 2018: Indian Women's Hockey Team go down 0-6 to England in Bronze Medal match

 Apr 14, 2018

The Indian Women’s Hockey Team’s campaign at the Gold Coast XXI Commonwealth Games came to a disappointing end as they lost to England 0-6 in the Bronze Medal match of the competition here at the Gold Coast Hockey Centre on Saturday.

India had started the match well as they pressed England high up the pitch and won back possession quickly which led them to create a few opportunities in the first quarter.

In the 8th minute, two consecutive Penalty Corners were saved by England as Gurjit Kaur’s shots were saved by the English Goalkeeper Madeleine Hinch and then a rusher.

England were also awarded a Penalty Corner in the 12th minute but Laura Unsworth’s shot was comfortably saved by Indian Goalkeeper Savita.

Both the teams had their opportunities in the second quarter as India also played some fluent hockey, causing problems for the English defence. (UNI)
