Indian women for the 1st time entered into the semifinals of hockey in their Olympic outings as they beat the powerful Aussies by 1-0.

The Indian women’s team had finished fourth in the 1980 Moscow Olympics but the format was different then.

India with the win has confirmed a medal clash. They will now face Argentina in the semifinals. The Argentinians outclassed the Germans by 3-0.

India dominated all four quarters with 59% of the ball possession. Drag-flicker Gurjit Kaur converted Indiaā€™s first penalty corner in the 22nd minute to give India the winning goal.

The Aussies had more shots with 14 compared to a paltry 4 from Indians but Indiaā€™s robust defence created an impenetrable wall not letting the ball pass through.

A shout-out to Indian goalkeeper Savita brought her A-game and saved all the 9 shots directed towards her.
