Philippine Women's Team blown out by South Africa in UWH Worlds

By Ivan Saldajeno

STELLENBOSCH--The struggles of the Philippine Underwater Hockey Team in the CMAS Underwater Hockey World Championship continued on a Black Saturday as the women's team dropped a 0-12 decision to host nation South Africa.

The Philippine Team fell to the bottom of Group B of the Elite Women's Division following a 3-3 draw between the other two teams without a point entering Saturday, USA and Great Britain.

The Philippines hopes to salvage its UWH Worlds bid sooner as it takes on Great Britain on Easter Sunday at 3:30 p.m. (Philippine Time).

On the other hand, the other Asian team in the women's division, Singapore, started its own campaign on a sour note, succumbing to Australia, 0-17, in Group A action.
