The action-packed final match for Day Three saw Singapore play against Ireland, beating them and marking Singapore’s first win in the M1 Nations Cup 2019.

 

With both teams aiming for a positive response from their losses yesterday, the first quarter started with end to end action. Jan Hynes (GS) making her 100th International cap for Ireland this evening opened the scoring with Singapore responding soon after to head into the first break leading 13-5.

 

The next two quarters (2nd & 3rd) saw Singapore upping the pace with faster, harder throws in an attempt to leave Ireland in the lurch and chasing the game into the final quarter.

 

With home crowd support, Singapore started to overpower the Irish in the final 10 minutes of the match and their interceptions, fast throws and sly bounce passes paid off as they won 51-35 – Singapore’s first win of the tournament.

There was also joy for Namibia and Botswana who beat Cook Islands and Papua New Guinea respectively.
