Singapore 0 vs Malaysia 5 (MEN)

Another match that promised action was the second match of the men’s competition between Singapore and Malaysia. One has the fourth place, while the other has won the first place by goal difference with the second.

The match was tough and even for both teams, the referee gave several cards and some of them yellow cards so there were moments of the match when both teams were at a disadvantage.

It was only in the 8th minute that ABDUL Danial scored the first goal for his team, so that 5 minutes later from a penalty corner AZHAR Muhamad scored the partial 2-0 to take the lead.

Although the team led by PONIRIN Redzuan had their chances, they were unable to score.

It was in the last minutes of the game that Malaysia wanted to seal the match and scored three more goals by MOHD Faridzul, CHOLAN Syed, AZHAR Muhamad who scored again in the end.

With the 5-0 result, Malaysia remains partially at the top of the standings and awaits Thailand in its next match, while Singapore wants to raise its head against Philippines.


Malaysia 0 vs Thailand 0 (WOMEN)

In the women’s competition, the second and third teams in the standings faced each other in an extremely even match, where both teams had chances to score but neither could score.

Malaysia had just beaten the Philippine team by 14 goals to 0, so they came with a lot of confidence and strength for this difficult match, while Thailand had just beaten the local team Cambodia by 9 goals to 0.

It was expected to be a tough match with a lot of back and forth, but neither of the two coaches could come up with a strategy to break the other’s defense.

The red and white team tried to play their game with their captain SHABUDDIN Norsharina at the helm, but the blue team prevented any kind of entry into the box to make them as uncomfortable as possible. For their part, the blue team had several penalty corner chances but could not take advantage of any of them.

The match ended 0-0, Malaysia remains in second place, while Thailand remains in third place on goal difference. The Thai team will go for a win against Indonesia who holds the first place, while Malaysia will play against Cambodia the host of these games.


Cambodia 1 vs Thailand 7 (MEN)

Last match of Day 3 of the men’s competition, the home team played against the Thai team looking for their place in the final.

The home team had just lost against Singpore in a very tough match in which they were able to score one goal, but it was not enough, while Thailand had just lost against Indonesia by only 3 goals.

Both teams had and wanted to show what they came to this tournament for, and the initiative was taken by Cambodia who scored in the first minute of the game with a goal by RASHEED Ammar from a penalty corner to make it 1-0. This was not enough as Cambodia was left with that first goal without being able to score any other and Thailand advanced with 7 goals that allowed them to comfortably win the game once they took control of the ball. The goals came from BOONPEA Warun x3, A-NUKOON Warawutx2, SORI Kittithat, SUKWONG Pongpon, one of them from penalty stroke and two from penalty corner.

This result gave the team led by SAFAEI Esfandyar some breathing space as it leaves them in third place, only 3 points behind the second place which they will try to achieve by winning tomorrow against the difficult Malaysian team. On the other hand, the host will be looking for their first 3 points against Indonesia.
