GLASGOW: Malaysian rested the experienced Ng Sock Khim but still steamrolled past Jamaica 3-0 for their third consecutive win to top Group 6 of the women’s team table tennis competition at the Scotstoun Sports Campus.
Malaysia, who outplayed Papua New Guinea (3-0) and edged Canada (3-2) on Thursday, have qualified for the knockout stage.
Teenager Ho Ying gave Malaysia the lead with a 14-12, 11-7, 11-5 win over Shenique Clare before another 19-year-old, Lee Rou You, delivered the second point by coming from a set down to win 6-11, 11-6, 11-6, 11-7 against Yvonne Foster.
Veteran Beh Lee Wei then teamed up with Rou You to seal victory by beating Clare-Dadrian Lewis 11-4, 11-5, 11-6.
Team manager Soong Poh Wah was pleased with the women’s team for staying unbeaten to top the group.
“We are not sure who we will face in the next round as a new draw will be done for the knockout stage,” said Poh Wah.
“We are keeping our fingers crossed that we will face easier opponents.”
