Black Sticks women lose third straight game

2:36 pm on 14 July 2010

The New Zealand women's hockey team have lost their third game in a row at the Champions Trophy in England, going down 4-0 to Argentina.

A nil-all draw at half time looked hopeful for the Black Sticks against the world's number two team, with both teams playing open attacking hockey in the first half.

However, the second half saw Argentina break through and score three field goals and one more off a penalty corner.

The Black Sticks Women's next game is against Germany on Thursday night.
