Slough’s Nicola White marked her second match at an Olympic Games in style by opening the score-line with her first Great Britain goal. Kim Darae pulled one back for Korea before Leicester’s Crista Cullen scored her 28th Great Britain goal to send the home side in 2-1 up. The second half saw another five goals; Alex Danson, Georgie Twigg and Chloe Rogers were all on the score sheet for Great Britain while Korea’s Han and Park tried to pull their side back into it, but it was not enough.
With Great Britain Captain Kate Walsh still in hospital recovering from an operation on a fractured mandible, her Reading teammate Helen Richardson stepped in to take the armband.
