UncategorisedBahrain Club miss table tennis singles podium

September 11, 20190

?Bahrain hopes of winning additional medals at the Second Arab Women’s Sports Tournament, being held in Sharjah, were vanished yesterday (Feb. 6).
Table tennis players Kaltham Elyasi, Nadeen Khodar and Fatma Al Qasmi all crashed out in the singles championship, watching their medal bid go up in smoke.
In the singles event, Elyasi was the most efficient among Bahrainis, having reached the best-of-seven game quarter-finals after a 3-0 win over Sharjah’s Hadeer Ebrahim, but failed to reach the semi-finals following a 2-4 defeat to Qatar’s Aya Majdy.
Early on, Khodar was unable to progress into the quarter-finals. She started the competition beating Noora Hassan of Sharjah 3-1 in the preliminary stage, but then suffered a 1-3 defeat to Qatar’s Nooa Al Ebri in the last-16 round.
Bahrain’s last hope Al Qasmi also bowed out of the tournament after 1-3 defeat to Maha Abdulreda of Qatar in the last-16 round tie.
Bahrain Club had won the doubles division silver and the team event bronze on Wednesday. Elyasi and Nadeen Adel teamed up to reach the final, where they went down to Qatar’s Aya Majdy and Maha Abdulreda 0-3.
The table tennis players are scheduled to return home today along with their Croatian head coach Boris Banicek and administrator Latifa Al Khaja.
Meanwhile, Al Ahli Club volleyball team stunned hosts and defending champions Sharjah Ladies Club 3-2 (21-25, 25-22, 26-24, 16-25, 15-13) in a well-contested game held at Sharjah Ladies Club Gym.
It was the maiden victory for Al Ahli, who made up for their loss to Kuwait in the tournament’s opening match and are now back on track.
Al Ahli were represented by American professional Ruth Cay, Hessa Al Isa, Najla Turab, Hajer Al Ansari, playmaker Marwa Shamsan and libero Fayza Sayyar.
Al Ahli will now play their third game today against Jordan at 5.30pm (Bahrain time) at the same venue. In other matches, Yemen meet Kuwait at 1pm while Saham of Oman encounter Sharjah at 7.30pm.
In the basketball tournament, Muharraq Club suffered their third defeat in the basketball championship as they went down 60-73 to Qatar at Sharjah Cultural Club Gym.
Muharraq, who headed into this tie hoping to pick up their maiden win in the competition and revive their podium chances, started the game well and went ahead 21-14.
However, the Bahrainis were unable to show consistency in the second quarter, in which they could only score six points against Qatar’s 15.
Both teams were equally poised in the third quarter, in which each side scored 24 points, but the Qataris regained momentum in the fourth and final quarter where they could score 20 to beat Muharraq’s nine points.
The shooting event continues today with the 25m rapid pistol competition, in which Samira Abduljalil, Lubna Abdulaziz, Mouza Abdulrahim and Latifa Al Najme will spearhead Bahrain.
