The Cambodian Eagles leave Vietnam unbeaten, after defeating both the Saigon Whites Swans and the Hanoi Reds Swans in Ho Chi Minh City, formerly Saigon, on Saturday. The Saigon Whites beat the Hanoi Reds in the third and final match of the day.
Each game was played with two halves of fifteen minutes and consisted of fourteen players on each team. The tournament was played in a round robin format at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) International University in Saigon South.
After a six hour bus trip from Cambodia, the Eagles overpowered the Hanoi Reds in the first match 6.6.42 to 3.2.20, and then continued their dominance in the second game to beat the Saigon Whites 5.5.35 to 3.2.20.
The Saigon Whites overcame the Hanoi Reds in the third game for a consolatory second placing. The tournament was great preparation and a good chance to gauge the competition for the Asian Championship coming up in August in Bangkok.
