SINGAPORE WATER POLO MEN’S TEAM KICKS OFF SEA SWIMMING CHAMPIONSHIPS WITH AN EMPHATIC WIN OVER THAILAND


Singapore kick started their bid to prove they are the region’s best by comprehensively beating Thailand 11-2 on match day 1 of the inaugural Southeast Asia (SEA) Swimming Championships 2012. The Singapore Under-23 water polo team, having seen their predecessors won the SEA Games gold medal 24 times, was never troubled throughout the match, often entertaining the packed grandstand with spectacular long shots. For Singapore head coach Lee Sai Meng however, he had hoped for more of those shot to go into the goal. “We missed a lot of (scoring) opportunities. No disrespect to Thailand, but we could have scored a lot more,” said Lee. Singapore started the match well and was always a threat on the attack, while keeping it tight in defense. The team raced to a 5-0 lead after two quarters of play, but was left to rue their wastefulness in front of goal for not putting the game beyond the reach of their opponent.
