Indian women beat defending champions Japan 4-2 , set up title clash against China

India’s women’s hockey team on Friday defeated defending champions Japan 4-2 to seal a place in the final of the Asia Cup, where they will meet China.

A brace from Gurjit Kaur and field goals from Navjot Gaur and Lalremsiami was enough for India to make into the final of the 9th Women’s Asia Cup .

Not surprisingly, given her superb form, it was Gurjit who gave India their first goal by converting a penalty corner in the seventh minute. In the ninth minute, that scoreline became 2-0 as Navjot added a fine field goal and Gurjit slotted in her second goal of the match.

The Japanese outfit, though, did not let go without a fight as Shiho Tsujii and Yui Ishibashi found the back of the net to throw the game and make it 2-3 at half-time. Shiho Tsuji opened Japan’s account in the 17th minute, and 11 minutes later a field goal from Yui Ishibashi left the home fans cheering.

With Japan threatening to make a comeback, India managed to cushion up the lead with Lalremsiami’s first goal of the tournament in the third quarter .

India entered the knockout stage of the tournament following wins over Singapore 10-0, China 4-1 and Malaysia 2-0 to top their pool, and on Thursday defeated Kazakhstan 7-1 in the quarter-final.

Gurjit Kaur is playing beautifully and already has find net 8 time in this tournament so far .

The final will be a repeat of the 2009 edition, which China won by a 5-3 margin. India have not won the tournament since emerging champions in 2004 . India has beat China In Group Stage earlier by 4-1 easily .
