LONDON:


Defending champions the Netherlands moved into the semi-finals of the Olympic women’s hockey tournament by defeating South Korea 3-2 for their fourth successive victory in London.


The Dutch were given a tough contest by Korea before sealing a win that gave them a maximum 12 points at the top of Pool A. “I’m obviously happy to be in the semi-finals, but I want to see more goals,” said Max Caldas, the coach of the Netherlands team. Meanwhile, Australia rode on Jade Close’s early field goal to prevail 1-0 over South Africa and so move ahead of the pack in Pool B with nine points from four matches.
