Rain washes out final Black Sticks Test

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 21/02/2017

Argentina have beaten New Zealand 3-1 in the six-Test women's hockey series in Buenos Aires after the final match was washed out.

Heavy rain forced organisers to initially postpone the Test an hour. No respite and a flooded turf led to the abandonment.

Argentina are deserve winners, having won the first, third and fifth Tests. A youthful New Zealand side won the second Test 1-0 while the fourth was drawn 2-2.

The home side scored 10 goals to three across the five completed matches.

The Black Sticks' next assignment is the four-nation Festival of Hockey tournament in the Hawke's Bay starting in late March.
