S'pore netballers trounce Myanmar 85-20
The Singapore netball team ended their SEA Games preliminary round on a high, thrashing Myanmar 85-20 at the OCBC Arena on Thursday (June 4).
The Asian Champions will enjoy a day's rest before facing Thailand in the semi-finals on Saturday (June 6).
Singapore finished the first quarter 20-6 up, despite coach Ruth Aitken resting first-choice goal scorer Charmaine Soh and veteran Premila Hirubalan.
With the pair returning in the second quarter, there was little the visitors could do against their bigger and faster opponents.
Singapore Captain Micky Lin said: "We'll have a break tomorrow and try to regroup for the semis. We still have two tough matches left in this competition, so we have to be ready."
