MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine men’s beach volleyball team completed a Pool A sweep after beating host Vietnam in the golden match on Wednesday in the 31st Southeast Asian Games at Tuan Chau Beach.

After splitting the first two matches, national team coach Vyl Verayo decided to field Jude Garcia and Requinton, who had different partners in their previous matches, in the golden match against the Vietnamese.
