Scotland men lost their Hockey World League Semi-Final ninth/10th-place play-off against South Korea as they were undone by clinical finishing.

Derek Forsyth's men, playing for the first time at this level, scored first at Lee Valley through Tim Atkins but trailed 2-1 after the first quarter.

Alan Forsyth, Gordon McIntyre and Kenny Bain went close but the Blue Sticks trailed 6-1 going into the final quarter at Lee Valley in London.

Bain's two late goals made it 6-3.

Scotland drew one and lost three of their Pool B matches and missed the chance to reach the quarter-finals and a possible World Cup place.
