Badminton team into quarterfinals

3:36 pm on 6 October 2010

The New Zealand badminton team has scored two more wins in the mixed teams competition to reach the quarterfinals.

The New Zealanders beat Sri Lanka and Northern Ireland to record three straight wins.

They will play group top seeds Singapore in their last pool match, where a win would mean they avoided powerhouse Malaysia in the quarterfinals and would meet Australia instead.
