1st podium finish for PH women's side in 1985 Games
The Philippine women's football team capped its campaign in the 31st Southeast Asian Games with its best finish in 37 years.
Trailing Myanmar at the half, Sarina Bolden and company turned things around after the break to pull off a 2-1 win for a bronze medal in women's football in Quang Ninh, Vietnam on Saturday.
The Filipinas rallied after Myanmar seized a 1-0 lead on Win Theigi Tun's penalty kick in the 23rd minute.
Bolden then struck the equalizer in the 73rd to get things going for the Filipinas, before Quinley Quezada clinched the winning goal in the 76th.
The Philippines entered the Games looking for gold, but they couldn't overcome Thailand in a 3-0 loss in the semis.
The last time the country medaled in SEA Games football was in 1985 during a 3-team single-round competition.
