KUALA LUMPUR — The Philippine women’s football team hacked out a 2-1 triumph over host Malaysia to start its Southeast Asian Games campaign late Tuesday night.


Patricia Impenido and Camille Rodriguez scored for the Malditas to sandwich a Malaysia goal at UiTM Stadium.

The Malditas will next face Vietnam on Thursday at 4:30 p.m. at University of Malaya.
