Olympic champions Great Britain fight back from conceding an early goal to beat Ireland 2-1 in the opening game of the three-match series in Belfast.

Roisin Upton put the hosts ahead with a seventh-minute penalty stroke but impressive Lily Owsley levelled just after half-time with Sarah Robertson hitting the winner early in the final quarter.

The sides will meet again at Queen’s University on Sunday before Tuesday’s concluding match in the series.
