• Malaysia go down to Taiwan in Asian Juniors (pic)

    PETALING JAYA: Shuttler Goh Yea Ching was supposed to deliver two points – in the mixed doubles and girls’ doubles – against host Taiwan in the mixed team quarter-finals of the Asian Junior Championships.

    But all she could do was win a point in the mixed doubles with Tan Jinn Hwa. It wasn’t enough to save Malaysia from losing 3-2 to Taiwan.

    Malaysia began the day on a high, with Yea Ching-Jinn Hwa downing Lee Chia-hsin-Lee Chia-han 18-21, 21-19, 14-21.Peck Yen Wei (left) and her partner Goh Yea Ching in a file photo. Yea Ching-Yen Wei lost to Taiwan's Chang Ching-hui-Chang Hsin-tien 15-21, 15-21 in the girls' doubles.

    Although Taiwan drew level when Lai Yu-hua beat Cheam June Wei 19-21, 22-20, 21-16 in the boys’ singles, Malaysia regained the lead through Goh Sze Fei-Chen Jia Huo, who fought brilliantly to beat Po Li-wei-Yang Ming-tse 21-17, 21-17 in the boys’ doubles.
