Favourites Ireland produced yet another clinical performance to maul minnows Singapore 11-0, registering their third consecutive win at the women’s FIH Series Finals hockey tournament in Banbridge.
The World Cup silver medallist, backed by a boisterous home crowd, were no match for their less-fancied opponent as they controlled the proceedings.
As expected, Ireland were completely in control of the game and displayed superior hockey as compared to Singapore.
Ireland scored seven goals in the first two quarters while another four in the final quarter.
Kathryl Mullan (9′ 57′) and Roison Upton (18′ 23′) scored a brace each, while Megan Frazer (7′), Gillian Pinder (11′), Elena Tice (18′), Sarah Hawkshaw (21′), Hannah Matthews (49′), Anna O Flanagan (56′) and Zoe Wilson (60′) also scored for Ireland.
The result means that the Irish team lead Pool B with nine points from three wins and have qualified for the semi-finals of the tournament.
