New Zealand women's hockey side beaten again

6:29 am on 17 August 2008

The New Zealand women's hockey team has lost their fourth game in Beijing.

They were beaten 4 - 1 by the USA and have just one pool match left to play.

Midfielder Joanne Galletly says the first US goal caught the New Zealanders napping in defence, then the team failed to capatilise on the opportunities they did get.

The Black Sticks will play Argentina on Monday.
