Did you miss any of the Commonwealth Games hockey action? You can catch up on all of the highlights by taking a look at BBC Sport's Hockey section. Also, all of the links below will take you to the BBC's highlights for that game. 

England women started their campaign with a hard-fought 2-0 win over Wales, with goals from Alex Danson and Nicola White making the difference. Up next they faced Malaysia, and a 5-0 routing kept England on track for the top of the pools, going on to face Australia on the following Monday. The Commonwealth champions stayed true to form, serving England with their first defeat of the games with three goals to none, but it didn't slow them down as they went on to defeat Scotland 2-1 and secured their place in the semi-finals.

It was a tense affair as England battled New Zealand in the semi-finals, with a 1-1 draw putting the decision down to a penalty shoot-out. However, England's star goalkeeper Maddie Hinch was on top form to only let one of New Zealand's attempts get past her, while England put three away to get themselves into the finals against Australia. While England fared better the second time around, a goal in the last 20 seconds took the game to another shoot-out where England were left with a silver medal rather than the coveted gold.

England men followed a similar path to the women, with their first game a solid 6-1 victory over Tinidad and Tobago where six different scorers found the net. They then faced Malaysia on the same day as England's women, with eight goals getting past the Malaysian keeper while England only conceded one. Their third game gave them their first defeat, losing 2-1 to New Zealand after a contentious penalty stroke and a last-minute penalty corner. However, England were already into the semi finals, and their last pool game against Canada just secured their place with a 3-1 win.

England's semi-final put them up against the current World Champions Australia, and they showed why they hold that title as they put four past England and booked their place in the final, while England were relegated to fighting for bronze in a grudge match against New Zealand. Yet another draw sent the game to one last penalty shoot-out, but England were able to turn around the result of four years ago and beat New Zealand with a penalty stroke from Ashley Jackson, taking home the bronze and England men's first Commonwealth Games medal in 16 years.
