PH beats Singapore in AFF Women's Championship
The Philippine women's football team was a dominant force on Wednesday night after zapping Singapore, 7-0, in their AFF Women's Championship battle at the Rizal Memorial Stadium, according to a report by Philippine News Agency.
The Filipinas were just too much for their Singaporean counterparts as six players scored for the hosts even as an early own goal summed up the Singaporean squad's struggles to contain the Philippine team.
Isabella Flanigan struck first for the Filipinas in the ninth minute before Ernie Sulastri made a defensive blunder a minute later when he miscalculated her clearance and sent the ball into their own goal to make it 2-0.
Tahnai Annis made it 3-0 in the 20th minute before Sarina Bolden added another goal in the 38th minute to cap the Filipinas' first-half domination.
The blowout continued two minutes into the second half when Sara Eggesvik made it 5-0 even as Kaya Hawkinson slotted a header goal off a corner kick in the 56th minute to make it 6-0.
Anicka Castaneda completed the rout, which matched Myanmar's 7-0 beating of Timor Leste on Tuesday night at the Binan Football Stadium, with a 69th-minute goal.
Following Thailand's 2-2 draw versus Australia earlier Wednesday, the Filipinas are now solely on top of Group A with the full six points and a plus-8 goal difference.
Thailand turned the tides in the final 50 minutes through goals from Kanyanat Chetthabutr (41st minute) and Ploychompoo Somnonk (60th) to split the points with Australia, which earlier surged ahead through a strike from Amy Sayer (18th) and a penalty from Mackenzie Hawkesby (26th).
Thailand is now in second place with four points.
In the other Group A match at the Binan Football Stadium, Malaysia drew with Indonesia, 1-1.
The stalemate pushed Malaysia to third place with two points.
