The New Zealand women's hockey team has been beaten in a penalty shoot-out by South Korea in their semi-final at the World League tournament in Antwerp.
The Koreans opened the scoring midway through the first half with Gemma Flynn levelling the scores a few minutes later.
The game ended 1-1, with Korea then winning the shoot-out 4-2.
Korea will now take on The Netherlands in the final after they beat Australia 5-1 in their semi-final.
New Zealand will meet Australia in the playoff for third.
Head coach Mark Hager says it's disappointing not to be able to capitalise on the amount of possession they had.
He says they had plenty of opportunities to win the game but weren't thorough enough in the circle and attacking third, Korea defended with lots of numbers and were desperate and they couldn't finish them off.
Hager says they didn't play as well as they have been and their basics let them down on a couple of occasions.
He says it's so disappointing to lose in this way but at the end of the day they weren't good enough.
The top three from the tournament gain automatic qualification for next year's Rio Olympics.
However New Zealand's world ranking of four still has them well positioned for a place in Rio.
