MANILA, Philippines – Action in polo started ahead of the 30th Southeast Games opening ceremony and team Philippines were only seconds away from chalking up its first-ever breakout win via polo but the break of the game went south and into Brunei’s way Monday, 25 November 2019.

As a result, team PH absorbed a very close 8.5 – 8 heart-breaker at the Inigo Zobel Polo Field, no thanks to Prince Bahar’s crucial penalty goal shot that allowed Brunei to escape with the win in the mixed-gender qualifying league of Division A 4-6 goals.

Sweet victory was actually within seconds and reach by PH’s horse-mounted nationals when one of the two umpires called an infraction that all but set up the Prince for the winning shot of the wooden ball.
Indeed, so close and yet so far.

Meanwhile, netball games start today (Tuesday, 26 November 2019) in Sta. Rosa, Laguna, while the floorball gets going at the University of the Philippines-College of Human Kinetics and football action unfolds at the Rizal Memorial Stadium pitch. (LO/IAMIGO/CNS)
