Argentina has wrapped up its six test series against the New Zealand women's hockey team with a match to play.

The hosts have beaten the Black Sticks 2-0 in the fifth test in Buenos Aires, to take an unassailable 3-1 series lead.

Assistant coach Sean Dancer says they struggled to match Argentina's intensity.

Dancer says unfortunately the girls didn't start the game with the right tempo that was required.
