Singapore Netball defeat Hong Kong in the inaugural Hong Kong-Singapore Cup

The Singapore netball team defeated Hong Kong 45-42 in the inaugural Hong Kong-Singapore Cup at Toa Payoh Sports Hall on Sunday 19th February.

Singapore, ranked 20th in the world, had beaten their 26th-ranked opponents 34-27 when the two sides met at last year’s Asian Netball Championship bronze-medal match in Bangkok. The two teams will meet again in next year’s Asian Netball Championship, which Singapore are hosting.

Singapore coach Yeo Mee Hong said: “It’s really good that we got to play against Hong Kong and know our opponents better.

“We started the game really well in the first quarter but, in the second and last, Hong Kong came back strongly and really put the pressure on us.”

As the scoreline suggested, it was a close affair yesterday.

Goal attacker Jocelyn Ng, making her Singapore debut along with Deborah Rowe, played three quarters of the match and scored 14 points on 70 per cent shooting.
