Shah Alam: Vietnam and Thailand settled for a point apiece after a 1-1 draw, while Myanmar ended their Kuala Lumpur 2017 SEA Games women’s football campaign with a 6-0 win over Philippines on Tuesday.

In a battle for supremacy, it was Vietnam who struck 11 minutes into the match with Pham Hai Yen’s shot on goal.

Vu Ba Dong’s side looked to capitalise on their early lead, but Thai keeper Waraporn Boonsing was quick to deny all their efforts.

Four minutes from half-time, Rattikan Thongsombut found the Thailand equaliser, keeping their hopes for gold alive.

It didn’t take long for Myanmar to find their lead when Khin Moe Wai’s shot found the back of the net in the fourth minute, before playmaker Win Theingi Tun furthered their lead, making it her  sixth goal of the tournament.

Myanmar went further ahead with Yee Yee Oo’s goal in the 18th minute.

Riding on a wave of confidence, Naw Arlo Wer Phaw placed Myanmar in an even more comfortable position a minute later.

After the restart, Philippines did well to defend against Myanmar’s attacks but couldn’t find a goal of their own.

However, their defence came up short again when Moe Wai scored in the 80th minute, and completed her hat-trick in added time.

Myanmar end their tournament with six points, a point behind Thailand and Vietnam. The bronze medal will be theirs if Thailand beat the Philippines on the final matchday.
