/ 08:24 PM November 28, 2019

NEW CLARK CITY — The Philippines firmed up its quest for a medal after trampling Thailand, 7-4,  Thursday in the men’s water polo competitions of the 30th Southeast Asian Games here.

The Filipinos had no problem dispatching the Thais to improve their record to one win and one draw, going into an anticipated showdown with perennial champion Singapore on Friday.

They drew Indonesia, 6-6, last Tuesday.

But while the men’s team is on track on its goal, the women’s side absorbed its second straight defeat, bowing to Thailand, 32-5, early Thursday.

The Philippine men’s will face Malaysia on Sunday. Standings after the single-round preliminary will decide the medal standings.
