Philippines captain Jade Rivera was equally resolute about facing Singapore next, saying: “We feel that they are fast players, but I think the game tomorrow is going to be intense for sure. I think there's going to be a lot of body contact going, on because we do have players who are well-built. But yeah, we are ready to take on Singapore and hopefully get the crown from them and hopefully be the next champions.”

The Singapore Under-19s also put on an impressive display as they scored 3 past the Indonesian defence. Armi Nur Qistina from the Singapore Under-19s opened the scoring in the first period with a strike into the bottom right corner of the net. Both teams scored in the second period to make it 2-1, before Singaporean Lim Jie Ying put the game to bed with their third in the final period.
Imma Faith Pranada Cruzado, Player of the Match for the Singapore Under-19 team, said: “It's a really well-deserved win from our side. Indonesia played a good match, but we came out here wanting to win and we did exactly that so we feel amazing and we will take this as a learning experience to do better in the next game.”
