Singapore quashes Philippines’ gold hope in SEA Games Men’s Floorball

The Philippine Men’s National Floorball Team showed up, but reigning Southeast Asian Games champion Singapore kept enough composure to take a 5-2 victory, Thursday at the UP College of Human Kinetics Gym.

The loss shattered the Philippines’ gold medal hopes, as it fell to a 1-2 slate for a tie of third with Malaysia.

Still, the team remained proud of the stand it put up against the reigning kings of the region.

“I am so proud of the team. We stuck to the game plan and we really fought hard on every duel out there,” beamed forward Ryan Hallden.

The Filipinos got on the board first, as their long passes worked towards a goal. Hallden received a pass from Henrick Dahmen for the go-ahead conversion at 3:05 mark of the first period.

The visitors leveled the match at one by the end of the first period off Suria. They then opened the second with a quick goal from Syazni Ramlee to snag the lead at 2-1.

Down 1-3, the Philippines took advantage of a rare opportunity as Christian Shoultze fired a strong one despite the man-disadvantage, still with plenty of time on the clock.

The Singaporeans then settled down, denying the Nationals a chance in the final period as they took home their second win after a draw against Thailand the other night.

Thailand remained on top with a 3-0-1 slate while Singapore sits at second with a 2-0-1 record. Indonesia remained winless in three outings.

The Filipinos are still confident that they can end the elims strong and eventually end up on the podium.

“We’ll gonna go into [the Malaysia] game with the same attitude as this one, and we’ll gonna bring it home,” added Hallden.

The potential bronze medal match preview is slated at 7 p.m. at the same venue.
