SEA Games: PH still winless in netball after loss to Thais
MANILA, Philippines—The Philippine netball team remained winless after losing to Thailand, 64-29, in the 30th Southeast Asian Games Wednesday at Sta. Rosa Sports Complex in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.
The Filipinas dropped to 0-3 after opening their campaign with an 80-28 setback at the hands of Singapore on Monday followed by an 88-25 defeat against defending champion Malaysia on Tuesday.
The Philippines hopes to avoid another winless campaign in the SEA Games when it faces Brunei on Friday.
Wary of the Philippine team’s progress over the years, Brunei won’t be taking the Filipinos lightly.
The Philippines have not won since participating in the sport in 2015.
Netball was first played in the SEA Games in 2001 but it was not contested again until 2015 in Singapore where the host bagged the gold.
