Cape Town - Belgium have secured a 3-1 win over South Africa women's hockey team in Cape Town on Monday night.

The result leaves the six-Test series tied 2-2 with two Tests drawn.

Belgium were 1-0 up in the 17th minute but failed to hold on to the lead when South Africa found the net shortly after through a penalty stroke which Dirkie Chamberlain converted with aplomb for 1-1 in the 34th minute.

South Africa conceded a soft Penalty Corner shortly after and defender Stephanie de Groof slapped the ball just inside the near post to put Belgium 2-1 ahead in the 36th minute.

With three minutes Belgium won a PC and De Groof's slap-shot slammed into the backboard for 3-1 in the 57th minute.
