Despite their best performance in the four-Test series, the Spar South African women's hockey team lost their fourth and last Test against Argentina on Sunday, going down by one goal to three to the team ranked second in the world.
Argentina led 3-0 at half-time.
"It was our best performance as a team," said team coach Jenny King. "We dominated ball possession in the second half, but were just not able to penetrate their last line of defence.
"Their goalkeeper made two outstanding saves -- one off a penalty corner and one off a reverse shot," she said.
"The team has been improving all the time. We just need to make the most of the chances we create," she said.
King said Marcia Mareschia, Lindsey Carlisle and Tarryn Bright had been outstanding throughout the series. -- Sapa
