Netball: S'pore lose to Sri Lanka at World Championships play-off

SINGAPORE : Singapore's women netball team lost 51-62 to Sri Lanka in the second play-off for the 13th or 14th spot at the World Netball Championships on Friday. The 2.06-metre tall shooter Tharjini Sivalingam from the South Asian side was the main threat to the local girls. "Going into the game, we know it's going to be a tall shooter and there is a lot of jumping involved. We tried a few different things - whether it's one-on-one or to split, we do the thing. We need a taller defender to go against her. Other than her, the other part of the court, everything was really good," said Lin Qing, Vice-Captain of the Singapore Netball Team. Singapore will be taking on Malaysia in their last play-off on Saturday. Host Singapore's target was to finish in the top 12 in the 16-nation tournament. But that was dashed when they lost to Fiji in the first play-off on Thursday.
