Chile claimed their second win in as many matches at the women's International Hockey Federation (FIH) Series Finals in Hiroshima after stunning higher-ranked Japan 3-1.

Despite intense home Japanese pressure at Hiroshima Regional Park, Chile led for the most of the first half through Denise Krimerman.

Suzuki Miyu equalised for Japan in the third quarter, but Fernanda Villagran and Consuelo de las Heras scored in the final minutes of the game to confirm Chile's victory.

"We created multiple opportunities but we weren't able to put it in the net," said Japan's head coach Anthony Farry.

Japan, ranked 18th in the world, and Chile, ranked 28th, had both triumphed in their opening matches of the tournament.

Chile now top Pool B, while Japan are on equal points with Russia, who thrashed Mexico 6-0 today. 

In Pool A, world number nine side India were dominant against Poland, defeating them 5-0.
