Incheon, South Korea (APTN / CBS Newspath) -- The North and South Korean women's ice hockey players showed plenty of fight on Sunday, but their combined team was outclassed in a 3-1 loss to Sweden at the Seonhak International Ice Rink in Incheon.

Wearing a powder-blue logo of a map symbolizing peace between the Koreas, the most talked-about team at this year's Winter Olympics has seen game action for the first time in a friendly match that drew thousands of spectators in South Korea.

The Koreas' combined team highlights a series of joint conciliatory gestures between the war-separated rivals for the Pyeongchang Olympics in South Korea, which begin on Friday.
