The Malawi National Netball Team vows to pull up performance in its next game at the ongoing Spar netball challenge in South Africa.
The Queens were thrashed 65-25 nets in the opening match against host and archrivals, South Africa.
The fairly new Queens side had a hard time in keeping ball possession besides missed chances at the goal.
Speaking to Super-Sport, Coach Peace Chawinga Kalua stressed that it was a bad start but she has noted areas that need improvement.
“The defense tried to do the best they could, but we were failing to penetrate between the South African defense in the mid court, but we have seen what has been going wrong and I think we have all the time to prepare for the next game,” Chawinga Kalua said.
On the other hand the South African coach Dorette Badenhorst felt that although the Queens did not do very well, but they gave them a tough game.
“First, thanks for Malawi for a great game and my team played really well and I am proud of them,” said Badenhorst who is also trying out new players in squad.
The teams meet again this evening in their second game, in the three game series.
