The New Zealand women's hockey team has battled past South Africa 1-0 at the Four Nations tournament in Germany this morning (NZT), setting up a tournament decider against the hosts tomorrow.

A Sam Harrison strike from an acute angle in the 19th minute was the difference, as the seventh-ranked Black Sticks edged the 12th-ranked South Africans in Monchengladbach.

It followed an opening 4-2 win over 17th-ranked Belgium, who upset the world No 3 Germans 1-0 in today's other match courtesy of a last-gasp winner.

New Zealand play Germany tomorrow as they continue their build-up to the Olympics.
