GUANGZHOU (China) (AFP) South Korea entered the final of Asian Games womens field hockey with a 2-0 win over Japan on Monday, a result that also lifted hosts China into the title clash. Kim Jong-eun scored both goals, the first with a penalty corner six minutes after half-time and the second with a powerful shot from the top of the circle five minutes before the end. The Koreans ended the seven-nation round-robin league at the Aoti Hockey Centre with five wins and a draw to garner 16 points. Japan were stranded in third place on 12 points, one behind reigning champions China, who will advance to the final even it they lose to India in Mondays last match. The Koreans, winners of four gold medals and two silvers since womens hockey was introduced at the 1982 Asiad in New Delhi, had failed to bag a medal at Doha four years ago. Japan, silver-medallists behind China in Doha, attacked hard in the second session but were thwarted by some brilliant saves by Korean goalkeeper Moon Young-hui. The winner of Wednesdays final will gain a direct entry to the 2012 London Olympics. The Chinese women are seeking a hat-trick of titles after winning in 2002 and 2006, while the Koreans will look to avenge the defeat in the final at home in Busan in 2002. Meanwhile, Malaysia ended the league with a 5-0 rout of Thailand, their second win in six matches. Nor Bokhari scored two goals and Noor Ruhaini, Norfaraha Hashim and Norazlin Sumantri netted one each. Thailand finished with three points.
