Hopes of gold now lost to Perlas after heartbreaker against Malaysia

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -- (UPDATED) A breakthrough gold medal in women's basketball in the Southeast Asian Games will have to wait for Perlas Pilipinas.

Barely 12 hours after a remarkable come-from-behind win over Thailand, the Philippine women's basketball team could not complete a similar rally and bowed to host team Malaysia, 60-56, on Thursday morning at the MABA Stadium.

It was a sorry loss for the Filipinas, who clawed their way back from a 16-point third quarter deficit and tied the game at 54 late, but squandered chances to take the lead in the final minute.

"Well again, siguro we fell short. That's how things are talaga," said a visibly disappointed Coach Patrick Aquino after the game.

"I'm just happy that we still got in there and I know the girls are very tired already from the game last night, and the game again today," he added.
