Highlights of the women’s field hockey semifinal between India and Australia: India suffered a heartbreaking loss to Australia in the women’s hockey semi-final on Friday. Australia scored the opener in the first quarter, but India fought hard not to concede a goal later. In the fourth quarter, India bounced back to even the scores and lead the game to penalties. In the latter part of the match, however, it was Australia who thoroughly dominated with a 3-0 lead, sealing the game once India failed to convert one of their first three chances into a goal. The Savita Punia-led team had previously finished in second place in Pool A with nine points from four games to advance to the semi-finals, while the Australian team had finished as the top of Pool B. They remain unbeaten in the tournament with their thrilling victory over India in the semi-finals. Australia now faces England in the final of the event.
