Kazakhstan women hockey team wins Great Britain at qualifying for the Winter Olympics

Great Britain's women lost 3-1 to Kazakhstan to end their hopes of qualifying for the Winter Olympics for the first time, BBC reports.

 

GB needed to win by two goals to advance to the next stage of qualifying for the 2018 Pyeongchang Games. 

 

Galia Nurgalieva and Daria Moldabai gave Kazakhstan an early lead before Katie Henry tapped in for GB. However Tatyana Likhaus ensured victory for the unbeaten hosts with a strike into an empty net.
