Two in Two for Singapore Netball at SEA Games

The Singapore netball team won their second consecutive game on Wednesday (Nov 27) with a convincing 62-38 win over Brunei, the 2017 Games bronze medallists.

The Bruneians, though, made Singapore work for the win. They took a 4-1 lead early in the first quarter of the match, and precise shooting and resolute defending helped them finish the first quarter with a 9-8 lead over Singapore.

But Singapore, silver medallists in 2017, picked up the pace after the break and went up 25-20 after the second quarter.Ā 

And in the third quarter, Singapore went up another gear and extended their lead over Brunei, ending the period with a comfortable 43-28 lead.Ā 

Natalie Milicichā€™s side continued their offensive and outplayed their counterparts in the final quarter to see themselves to another win ā€“ the first was a 80-28 thumping of hosts Philippines on Monday.

Singapore will face Thailand next on Thursday, and causeway rivals Malaysia after that. In the 2017 Games, Singapore lost the gold to Malaysia 65-41 in the finals.Ā
