Junior star Joo Ven thumps Zairul to make final

PETALING JAYA: Top junior shuttler Soong Joo Ven stayed on course for the Under-18 title in the National Junior Circuit GP Finals after a stylish performance in the semi-finals at the Sukpa Stadium in Kuantan.

Joo Ven, who hopes to end his junior career on a high, was too strong for Bukit Jalil Sports School’s Zairul Nizam Zainuddin, winning 21-17, 21-10 yesterday.

In the boys’ doubles, Darren Isaac Devadass-Ong Yew Sin showed their mettle by beating Mohd Aliff Haika-Mohd Akmal Zakaria 21-14, 21-23, 21-15 to set up a showdown against fellow BJSS trainees Eric Jong-Ng Di Hua.

In the girls’ singles, Sylvia Kavita Kumares, who has already won the Under-12, Under-14 and Under-16 titles, stayed well on course for the Under-18 title after beating Yap Rui Chen 9-21, 21-14, 21-3.

She will take on top junior Ho Yen Mei, who was made to work hard before beating Lee Zii Yii 18-21, 21-15, 21-10, in the final.

In girls’ doubles, top seeds Joyce Choong-Yap Cheng Wen will be the favourites when they go up against Goh Yea Ching-Peck Yen Wei in the final.
