Great Britain got off to a flying start as Hong Kong suffered a second-half collapse for the former Olympic gold medallists to notch a convincing 7-1 victory in last night's Super Cup at King's Park. Hong Kong had their moments in the historic encounter - the first between the two teams in the SAR - but they weren't good enough as the 1988 Olympic champions capitalised on a string of defensive errors to easily win their opening game in the four-team tournament. Arif Ali produced some breathtaking runs down the left wing, while striker Asghar Ali surged forward and looked a menace with his superb stick work. But the finishing wasn't there as Great Britain lived up to their reputation as one of the top sides in Europe against an inexperienced SAR team before a 700-strong crowd. Still, it was a brave effort from Hong Kong who held their own in the first half but wilted under pressure from a fitter and more experienced Great Britain side who were captained by Hong Kong-born Jerome Goudie. 'We played reasonably well and it was a very competitive game up until the last 15 minutes when we made a few errors,' Hong Kong coach Mark Bailey said. 'We played well 90 per cent of the match and actually got back into it at 3-1 but we made a couple of mistakes and that cost us,' Bailey said. Hong Kong didn't give away too much as far as chances were concerned in a static first half which saw Great Britain finally break the deadlock after 18 minutes through Ben Hawes who scored from a penalty corner conversion. Vishal Marwaha extended their lead just before half-time when he received a long pass from Mark Pearn and fired low past Jason Man Chi-yan. Dave Matthews made it 3-0 six minutes into the second half, scooping the ball high into the net. Hong Kong captain Farooq Saeed raised the biggest cheer of the night when he slammed home from a penalty corner in the 51st minute. But Great Britain struck back almost immediately with Danny Hall sounding the boards to make it 4-1. Pearn added another a minute later and Great Britain struck again in the 61st and 67th minutes through Hall (his second of the night). Goudie rounded off a good evening's work for his team with three minutes remaining. Earlier, South Korea blasted Japan 4-2 in the first match. The Sydney Olympic silver medallists started the ball rolling when Seo Jong-ho scored from close range after 13 minutes and last year's Asian Games gold medallists added another, five minutes later, through Yoo hyo-sik's close-range effort. Japan produced some neat attacking hockey and their efforts paid off when Takahiko Yamabori caught the South Koreans napping with a fine goal after 22 minutes. Japanese goalkeeper Kenichi Katayama produced a series of sterling saves to prevent South Korea a greater margin of victory. South Korea are ranked fourth in the world and considered one of the favourites for next year's Olympic title in Athens. They went 3-1 up when Jang Jong-hyun slammed home a penalty corner conversion. Japan surprised again when they breached the South Korea defence through captain Kenichi Katayama. But almost immediately Lee Jung-seon restored Korea's two-goal lead.
