India had to settle for a silver medal after losing 0-1 to hosts Japan in the final of the third Women's Asian Champions Trophy here Saturday.

Japan scored an early goal in the second minute when Otsuka Shiho made no mistake in converting a penalty corner.

India had an opportunity to level the score with a penalty corner in the eighth minute but failed to convert it.

Japan received  three penalty corners opportunities in the next ten minutes but the Indian defence and goalkeeper denied any scoring chance to the opponents. Japan went into the half time break with a slender lead.

The home team got another penalty corner opportunity in the 50th minute but Indian goalkeeper Savita again made a good save.
