Two minutes later, captain Maartje Paumen doubled the lead by converting a penalty corner.

Even though the Indian eves managed to sneak in a consolation goal, the second half completely belonged to the Dutch who scored six times.

Ellen Hoog tripled Netherlands' lead with a field goal Vandana Katariya pulled one back in the 48th minute. But soon after Valeria Magis restored the three-goal advantage.

Eva De Goede, Sabine Mol and Paumen completed the 8-1 rout.
