June 13, 2005 19:08 IST

India crashed to their first defeat after a 0-3 loss to hosts Korea in a league match of the six-nation KT Cup women's hockey tournament in Seongnam.

Korea maintained their undefeated status and moved four points clear at the top of the table after a comfortable win over the Asia Cup winners on the third day of the competition on Sunday.

The home team's goals were all scored from set-pieces, with a pair of first half penalty-corners conversion by Ko Woon Oh and Seon Ok Lee, complemented by a penalty stroke goal in the 54th minute through Eun Sil Kim.

India, who had a fine start to their campaign with a 7-2 win over Malaysia, were held to a 1-1 draw by England in the subsequent match.

The loss against Korea saw them going down to the fourth place in the table with four points.

After a pair of draws on the opening two days, England and China also both recorded their first victories on Sunday to move into equal second on the points table behind the hosts.

England scored three goals in seven minutes after half-time to defeat Ireland 3-0, while China thrashed Malaysia 9-1.
