Women’s hockey team wins silver at Asian Games for first time in nine years
South Korea’s women’s hockey team has won a silver medal at the Asian Games for the first time in nine years.
South Korea, led by Han Jin-soo, lost 0-2 to China in the women’s hockey final at the Hangzhou 2022
Asian Games on Sunday at the Gungshu Canal Sports Park in Hangzhou, China.
South Korea’s bid for Asian Games gold nine years after the 2014 Incheon Games came up short in the final.
However, the Korean hockey team avenged the disappointment of the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Games.
It also became the only team to win medals in both men’s and women’s ball games at the Games. Earlier,
the men’s hockey team lost to India in the semifinals before winning the bronze medal match against China.
South Korea fell behind early, conceding a goal to Chun Yi in the seventh minute of the first period. The
Koreans fought back but were unable to break through the Chinese defense.
The Koreans were hoping to fight back, but Zou Meirong scored a goal in the ninth minute of the fourth quarter to make it a two-goal game. In the end, the Koreans were unable to score a single goal and were unable to win the gold medal. 19가이드03
