Tharjini Sivalingam shoots Sri Lanka to victory

Tharjini Sivalingam scored an incredible 76 goals as Sri Lanka earned their first win of Netball World Cup Liverpool 2019 by beating Singapore 88-50 in the opening game in Group E. Both sides started brightly, each claiming two goals apiece. However it was Sri Lanka who then put their foot down, with their tall goal shooter Sivalingam firing in seven goals to give them a 7-4 advantage. It was a perfect ten as she extended the lead to 10-5, on what was already proving a difficult day for the Singaporean defence. Their main threat in attack was Charmaine Soh who netted nine of their eleven first-quarter goals. However Sivalingam had already boosted her tournament tally by 21.The second quarter began in the same vein, with the Sri Lankan goal shooter taking her chances, and resistance being offered by Soh. Sivalingam’s shooting partner Hasitha Mendis got her first goal to take the score out to 28-14, but she was overshadowed by the prolific Sivalingam.
