GB's women's hockey beat USA to 2-1 to make quarter finals

Great Britain's women's hockey team came from behind to defeat the United States 2-1 and finish top of Pool B at the Olympic Games in Rio.

The result means Britain, bronze medallists in 2012, progress from the group stage with a 100% record.

Michelle Vittese put the US ahead on 39 minutes, but GB scored twice in three fourth-quarter minutes through Sophie Bray and Alex Danson.

Danny Kerry's side will play Spain in the quarter-finals on Monday.

"If you'd offered us top spot at the start of the week I'd have bitten your hand off," said captain Kate Richardson-Walsh.

"The momentum we've created is good. All the sides are excellent in this tournament so I'm really proud of what we've done so far."
