The Indian women's hockey team went down fighting to hosts Scotland 3-4 in the 7th-8th classification playoff to finish eighth and last in the FIH Champions Challenge 1 there Sunday.


India played competitively and did not allow Scotland to score a single goal in the first half as the teams went into the break with a 0-0 scoreline.

In the second half, Scotland's Vikki Bunce took the lead and stroked in a goal (44th minute). But India turned the tables as they scored three consecutive goals. First Neha Goyal equalised (46th) through a penalty corner, followed by Lilima Minz (51st) and Navneet Kaur (63rd).

At this point India seemed to have an unassailable lead but Ailsa Wyllie scored (64th) to make it 2-3 for the hosts. Some time later Bunce levelled the score with a penalty corner (67th).

With two minutes on the clock, Clement received the ball on the edge of the circle and her reverse stick shot flew under keeper Savita to give Scotland the victory.
