Singapore Put Up Good Fight

Singapore’s gutsy display against Jamaica last evening was their best performance yet, scoring a respectable 40 goals against the title favourites as they went down 40-93. Despite the loss, captain Jean Ng was glad that the team had the chance to play against the world No. 4.
 
Head coach Kate Carpenter was please with the team’s performance, saying: “I am very pleased with the scores.” She went on to elaborate how the team was taking it in their stride and enjoying the experience against a team capable of winning the World Championships.
 
However, she acknowledged that the team’s real battle begins today as they prepare to face off world No. 5 Fiji, who stands in their way to a top-12 finish in the tournament.
 
Speaking ahead of the game, goal attacker Asha Tett said, “We will work against whatever they bring us.”
 
The match also saw the debut of 21 year-old rookie goal attacker Charmaine Soh.  Oozing confidence, she was unfazed by her taller and stronger opponents, she earned her first international cap shooting 76 per cent and scoring 13 goals.
 
Centre and wing defender Charlene Porima was missing from the bench last evening due to a finger injury suffered during the match against South Africa. Her return is pending further assessment.
 
Said Carpenter: “We may have her back, we may not. But that was the objective in trying out positioning changes against Jamaica.”
