Danson, Rogers & Long on target for GB

Great Britain’s women’s hockey team again came from behind to beat the USA 4-1 on Thursday and secure a third consecutive victory to clinch the best of five series in San Diego with two games remaining. 

As on Wednesday, Great Britain fell behind to an early deflection but a freak goal from Reading’s Alex Danson levelled things before the break, albeit somewhat fortunately.
