BERMUDA TOO SLOW FOR SINGAPORE
Bermuda's slow start was their downfall tonight as they went down to Singapore 49-56 who take 15th place.
Singapore had their best start of the tournament so far, scoring a flurry of six goals consecutively, and the quarter ended 14-6 in their favour.
Bermuda came back in the second quarter and were able to apply some pressure to the Singaporeans, but eight goal deficit proved too tricky to budge.
Consistent shooting was the order of the day for Singapore, and though they were less accurate than their opponents, they fired 13 more attempts in total, with a more confident performance overall across the court.
Bermuda's GA Jasmyn Renfroe shot a perfect 100% across all four quarters, but the Bermudan's couldnt' get the ball to her often enough.
Ever the optimist, Bermuda's coach Gina Benjamin was delighted with her side. "I'm very pleased with the effort that the girls gave me today." Benjamin couldn't pick a standout "All of them shone for me today."
Captain Jaylynn Hines said the team has thoroughly enjoyed the experience in Glasgow, describing it as "fantastic" adding "We've never really experienced playing teams like this."
Bermuda faced new Zealand in their opening match and Hines said it was tough. "We came out of that game on a high and we ended on a high, so you couldn't ask for anything more than that."
