<span>The Black Sticks Women have suffered a disappointing 1-0 loss to Malaysia in game three at the TET MultiSports Centre in Stratford.<br>
<br>
Despite controlling the game early, New Zealand struggled to put shots on goal and allowed Malaysia to play their way back into the match in the second half.<br>
<br>
The visitors secured the winning goal three minutes from fulltime when Fatin Sukri converted from a penalty corner.<br>
<br>
Black Sticks assistant coach Sean Dancer said it was a disappointing performance.<br>
<br>
“The result is disappointing and our basics were poor tonight,” he said.<br>
<br>
“We started well and created some good opportunities but unfortunately our final touches and shots at goal weren’t good enough.<br>
<br>
“To Malaysia’s credit they were able to take their chance to win the game but we certainly need to be better for our next game.<br>
<br>
The Black Sticks take on Malaysia in game four at 3:00pm on Saturday, with tickets still available through <a href="http://www.hockeynz.co.nz/">www.hockeynz.co.nz</a> <br>
