The New Zealand women' hockey team has been humbled 6-1 in the second test against Argentina.

The first test ended 1-all and after winning home Test series against Korea and Japan the Black Sticks were disappointed they didn't win in Whangarei.

However the world champions scored quickly at North Harbour and led 3-0 at half-time.

The Black Sticks thought they'd scored early in the second half but Charlotte Harrison's goal was disallowed and Argentina scored again before striker Cathryn Finlayson scored her second goal of the series, which ends tomorrow at North Harbour.
