Singapore netballers beat Myanmar 85-20, meet Thailand in s-finals

SINGAPORE - Singapore's netballers cruised to a 85-20 victory against Myanmar in their final preliminary round-robin match of the SEA Games competition on Thursday night.

Coach Ruth Aitken chose to start with goal shooter Yasmin Ho instead of regular starter Charmaine Soh, and she delivered, scoring 21 goals with 91 per cent accuracy.

Singapore were always on top against Myanmar, who failed to qualify for the semi-finals as a result of the loss.

The result means Singapore finish second in the round-robin table behind Malaysia, and will face third-placed Thailand in the semi-finals on Saturday at 4pm. Malaysia will face fourth-placed Brunei at 2pm.
