India vs China Highlights, Asian Games Women's Hockey Semifinal: China were clinical throughout the extent of 60 minutes as struck four goals past India, who looked to end their 41-year-long wait for a second Asian Games goal. After a goalless first quarter, where India were probably the happier side at the face of the array of attacks they faced from China, the three-time winners went a goal up before half time and quickly doubled their lead in the third quarter. India looked to fight back and rather put in their best efforts between the third and fourth quarters with a range of attacks and gained a flurry of penalty corner opportunities as well, but eventually failed to equalise the score. In the final few minutes of the match, China found the back of the net two more times to secuire their place in the final for the sixth time in Asian Games. India will now fight for the bronze medal.
