2019 SEA Games

Ryan Cater scores winner, lifts Philippine Floorball past Indonesia in thriller

Ryan Cater denied Indonesia any further chances with a goal to send the Philippine men’s floorball team into its first win of the 2019 Southeast Asian Games, 5-4, Monday at the UP College of Human Kinetics Gym. 

“We’re gonna win,” the 34-year-old forward said on what he was thinking before that winning shot.

Cater received the ball from Henielee Pastor from the back and tried to keep the ball moving. He then hit it into the net for the fifth goal for the Nationals.

The Indonesians took the lead with an early goal off Bayu Munandar in the 6:31 mark of the opening period. Janet Tampubolon then doubled the lead for the visitors at the 35th minute.

Philippines, however, picked up the pace and finally got two quickfire goals from Christian Schoultze. The Skogas/Tragsunds IBK forward scored twice in the 38th minute to level the match at two at the end of the second.

Cater and Christopher Holland — who assisted in both goals during that second period — found Schoultze once more in two different hits and the Philippines took the lead at 4-2.

The Indonesians scored twice to tie it up at four, but the Filipinos ended the game in regulation with that vicious strike from Cater.

The Slevik IBK forward felt pleased with their debut win.

“It was really nice. We showed a lot of heart. Buong puso.”
