Singapore's Jazreel leads Masters event


Singapore bowler Jazreel Tan set the early pace in the women's Masters event at Orchid Country Club yesterday by taking a commanding lead after the first block of eight games.

Her 1,896 pinfalls gave her a sizeable lead over second-placed Krizziah Tabora (1,744) of the Philippines and third-placed Tannya Roumimper of Indonesia (1,740).

Also in with a shout are Singapore's New Hui Fen (fourth, 1,706) and Shayna Ng (fifth, 1,703) and Daphne Tan (joint-6th, 1,671).

The Republic's male bowlers are almost certainly out of the running as Malaysia's Rafiq Ismail (1,956) and compatriot Ahmad Muaz (1,828) set the pace.

Malaysia beat S'pore in women's basketball

Singapore's women basketballers lost 65-39 to Malaysia at the OCBC Arena yesterday.

With one final group game - against the Philippines tomorrow - to go, they occupy the second-last spot in the six-team table with three losses and one win.

The Republic's men's team play their semi-final match against Indonesia tonight.

The Philippines will take on Thailand in the other semi-final.

Singapore's archers win two bronzes

Singapore's archers won two bronzes in the men's team and individual recurve events at the Kallang Cricket Field yesterday.

Tan Si Lie, Keith Teo and Zhang Jing Kang combined to beat Myanmar's Aung Nay Myo, Thu Aung Myo and Thu Nyein Si 5-1 in the team bronze-medal match, before Tan went on to clinch an individual bronze by beating Natthapoom Phusawat of Thailand.

Singapore, however, missed out on another two bronzes when the women's team lost 5-3 to Malaysia and the mixed team were downed 5-1 by Vietnam.

Malaysia and Vietnam won the men and women's team golds respectively, while the mixed team title went to Indonesia.
