THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) -- Park Mihyun and Cheon Eunbi scored two goals each as South Korea came from behind to beat Belgium 4-2 at the women's field hockey World Cup.

The Koreans moved third in Group A with seven points, behind the Netherlands and Australia who both have nine points and play each other later Saturday.

Cheon opened the scoring in the 12th minute after a pass from Kim Hyunji. Belgium's Jill Boon tied the score just three minutes later, hitting in her own deflected shot. Belgium went ahead just before the break when Alix Gerniers chased in another of Boon's deflected shots.

The Belgians tired in the second half and Park equalized from close range in the 49th before grabbing the go-ahead goal in the 55th. Cheon added insurance on a tight-angled shot.
