SEA Games Week 2: Finals Set

Into the tournament proper and Singapore got rolled 11-6 in the first official game of the tournament.  Singapore were never ahead – Thailand led all the way and their victory was fully deserved.   It was sad to see Singapore struggle as they did.

Malaysia were heavy favourites to beat Brunei and did not disappoint.  Their 12-4 win was played with the Minister of Youth and Sport, Y B Brig General Khairy Jamaluddin at No 1.

Singapore had to win their next match against Malaysia but slumped to their worst loss to their neighbours in years,  at 11-0 in the third chukka and finally 13-2, it was almost a white-wash.   It was an annihilation that Singapore will remember for years to come.

Thailand sealed their place in the final with an easy 10-3 win over Brunei.

29seagames_results_v2bSo after two play days of qualifying, the matches are set for the medals.  Singapore will play Brunei for the bronze medal.  Malaysia will meet Thailand in the final, for gold and silver.

Saturday’s matches will just be dress rehearsals.
