SEA Games: Malaysia's netballers beat Thailand 71-32

SINGAPORE - Malaysia beat Thailand 71-32 in their final preliminary match of the SEA Games netball competition at the OCBC Arena on Thursday.

The Malaysians were dominant in the first-half courtesy of goal shooter Norashikin Kamalzaman, who scored 41 goals, but the Thais fought back in the third quarter, out-scoring Malaysia 11-12.

However, the deficit was too much for them to make up, and Malaysia eased to victory in the fourth quarter.

Malaysia top the round-robin table of six countries, and will likely play Brunei in the semi-finals on Saturday.
