It was a disappointing result for their coach, Sue Slocombe, as the team completed their extended preparation programme of international matches prior to departure a week today to North Carolina for acclimatisation before moving to Atlanta.
Yesterday Britain pinned the Spanish into their own half for long periods without looking like scoring and it was not until the 67th minute that they won their only penalty corner, which Scotland's Sue Fraser converted.
Spain, fielding eight Olympic gold medallists, looked dangerous on the break and even more dangerous at set-pieces, Dorado scoring from three of their six penalty corners.
