Chong Wei Feng however came to the rescue as he blew away Kieren Merrilees 21-16, 21-14 before Tee Jing Yi gave a spirited display to beat Scotland's top player Kirsty Gilmour 21-10, 21-15.
Goh V Shem-Tan Wee Kiong clinched the winning point with an effortless 21-12, 21-15 win over Martin Campbell-Patrick Machugh.
