The New Zealand men's hockey team has taken a 2-1 lead in the best of five Test series against Korea after beating the tourists 2-1 in Mt Maunganui.

The Black Sticks had to fight back from a 1-0 half-time deficit to claim the victory, Blair Hilton scoring first with Marcus Childs sealing the result with less than a minute to spare.

The Black Sticks will be looking to wrap up the series in the final game at the same venue today.
