SCAR­BOR­OUGH Net­ball Club’s di­vi­sion ones beat a vis­it­ing Malaysian team by 10 goals at John XXIII Col­lege in a friendly last Wed­nes­day night.

The Malaysian team is in Perth pre­par­ing for the Asian Net­ball Cham­pi­onships in Sin­ga­pore from Septem­ber 7-14.

The cham­pi­onships are played ev­ery four years and this year’s win­ner will qual­ify for the World Cham­pi­onships in Syd­ney next year.

Malaysia, who last won the Asian cham­pi­onships in 1985, will play Sri Lanka, Brunei, Chi­nese Taipei and Myan­mar in Group B.

Scar­bor­ough coach Kath Hewett said the Malaysian team was stronger than she ex­pected.

“They were very com­pet­i­tive but had a very dif­fer­ent style to our game be­cause they’re very zone- ori­en­tated,” she said.
