MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine women's netball team suffered another huge loss in the netball competition of the 28th Southeast Asian Games in Singapore on Wednesday.

Matched up against the host team Singapore, the Filipinas wound up losing widely, 12-84, and were dealt with another huge blow when Danielle Castaneda was injured in the fourth quarter of the game.

The Singaporeans scored 21 points in each of the game's four quarters, and the Filipinas could not keep up.

Castaneda, who played volleyball for University of the Philippines, scored three goals before incurring what appeared to be a right knee injury, according to a report from ABS-CBN Sports.

Ana Thea Cenarosa had seven goals and Leanne Espina added two for the Philippines.

Xiu Xiu Ho led the hosts with 25 points on 30 shots, and Charmaine Soh added 22 points on 25 shots.

The Filipinas have now lost all four of their netball games in the SEA Games, but will try to salvage their campaign against Brunei on Thursday afternoon.
