The Philippines prevailed in a physical encounter with Singapore, 7-2, in the 29th Southeast Asian Games ice hockey tournament Tuesday night in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The Filipinos rose to 2-0 after a dominating debut on Monday where they blanked Indonesia, 12-0.

The Philippines faces host Malaysia Wednesday night at 8 p.m., most likely with a depleted lineup after one of its players in Nico Cadiz got injured during the Singapore duel.

Cadiz, according to team manager, Petronilo Tigaronita, dislocated his left shoulder.

The Filipinos, who are tipped to win the gold in the maiden ice hockey event in the SEA Games, wrap up their stint against Thailand on Thursday.
