2017 SEA Games

Men’s Squash Team, Women’s Jumbo Doubles fall to Singapore, settle for silver


After upsetting tournament favorite Malaysia, the Philippine Men’s Squash Team was hoping to end the Philippines’ somber 2017 Southeast Asian Games on a high note.

However, an equally-determined Singapore squad derailed their aspirations as the Filipino troika of Reymar Bergornia, Robert Garcia, and David Pelino fell 1-2 in the final, Tuesday evening at the National Squash Center in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

To start the best-of-three team match-up, Bergornia was overwhelmed by Pang Ka Hoe, 1-11, 3-11, 6-11.

Robert Garcia

Not wanting to waste this moment, Robert Garcia survived a thriller against Benedict Chan in four sets, 11-8, 9-11, 11-8, 11-9, to send the series into a winner-take-all.

However, Pelino was thoroughly outclassed by Samuel Kang, 4-11, 4-11, 5-11, to seal gold for the Singaporeans.

The women’s jumbo duo of Jemyca Aribado and Yvonne Alyssa Dalida also settled for silver earlier in the day after falling to Singapore as well.
