Dublin, Ireland:

Indian eves thrashed Wales 4-0 to finish seventh at the Champions Challenge I hockey tournament here.

Poonam Rani got the Indians up and running as she drew the first blood on Sunday, before Anupa Barla's sweetly struck effort and another goal from Ritu Rani extended the margin to 3-0 at half-time.

After the breather, Lily Chanu Mayengbam completed the scoring in the 47th minute from the left side of the circle to help her side finish the tournament at the seventh place.

Wales ended eighth and took the only relegation spot from the tournament.

Earlier, India's hopes of making the semifinals of the tournament went up in smoke after losing 1-3 via penalty shootout to Scotland in the quarterfinals last week.

Australia returned to the elite women's Champions Trophy when they defeated USA 6-1 to claim the gold in the Champions Challenge I.

The Americans had to contend with the silver while bronze medal went to Ireland, who defeated Scotland 4-3 via penalty shootout in the third-fourth place paly-off game.
