It was a disappointing start to the USA tour for the Indian womens hockey team as they suffered a narrow 2-3 loss to the Champions Trophy bronze medalists in their opening match. Andrei Markov Jersey .For India, Preeti Dubey (33rd minute) and Deepika (38th) scored a couple of goals in the third quarter, while Kathleen Sharkey (6th), Katie Bam (31st) and Kelsey Kolojejchick (48th) scored for USA.Both the teams tried to play cautious hockey and avoid defeat. The games tone was set, with both looking to hold fort and react through counter attacks.In the 6th minute of the match, USA took the lead via Kathleen Sharkey. In an otherwise timid first half, Indias Vandana Katariyas attempt at goal was unsuccessful as the ball hit the post.India came back tougher in the second quarter and started making inroads into the USA defence. They soon started playing strategically compact hockey, denying USA the ball in scoring areas. The two teams went into the half time break with USA leading 1-0.The third quarter was a hard-fought battle as India looed to get back into the game and started pushing forward in numbers. USA, defending deep and working on the counter, were lucky when Katie Bam scored a second in the 31st minute via a penalty corner.India countered quickly and capitalised on their advantage as Preeti Dubey scored the first goal for India in the 33rd minute.In the 38th minute Deepika scored the equaliser as both teams entered the final quarter with the score being 2-2.However, the final quarter saw USA take the lead with Kelsey Kolojejchick scoring the third goal in the 48th minute.Speaking after the match, Chief Coach Neil Hawgood said, These matches are extremely crucial as our final preparations for Rio Olympics. We had a neck-neck fight today, the girls played well. We are going to analyse the loopholes and play better in our subsequent matches.Indias next match with USA is on 21st July at 04:00hrs IST. Alexei Kovalev Jersey . After Martin Skrtel put the Reds in front from close range at Stamford Bridge after only four minutes, Hazard hit back in the 17th with a superb strike. Etoo gave Jose Mourinhos team a decisive lead from Oscars back pass in the 34th. David Schlemko Jersey . Gerald Green and Miles Plumlee? Green had bounced around the NBA when he wasnt playing overseas. The Pacers gave up on Plumlee after just one season. Now Green and Plumlee are key cogs in the Suns surprising breakout season. http:///...Petry-Adidas-Jersey/ . Louis Blues teammates who would also be participating in the Olympics, Alex Pietrangelo felt right at home, no different in some ways to the travel experience of any old road trip – save for the length of the journey, that is. Preseason statistics often can be misleading.That might not be the case with James Harden right now.After three preseason games, Harden has three points-assists double-doubles -- the most recent one Sunday in Shanghai, when he had 26 points and 15 assists to help the Houston Rockets beat the New Orleans Pelicans 123-117 in an NBA Global Games matchup.Were treating every game of preseason like the regular season in order to build good habits, Harden said. We dont take the preseason lightlyClearly not.The Rockets are 3-0 in exhibitions so far this fall, scoring 131, 130 and now 123 points in those games. Harden is averaging 23.3 points and 12 assists in those three games.And fans in China, where the Rockets are enormously popular anyway -- thanks in large part to Yao Ming -- have taken to Harden as well, with many sporting fake beards on Sunday to mimic his look.Great atmosphere, Harden said.Theyll be seeing even more NBA in China this season. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver announced Sunday an expansion of the NBAs partnership with BesTV, one thaat will see up to 1,300 games per season broadcast in China. Andrew Shaw Jersey.
