MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine Wild Rift women’s squad won the country’s first sports gold medal at the 31st Southeast Asian Games after beating Singapore on Wednesday night.
Accepting all of the enemy’s offers, the Jindsky Eris Squad consisting of Christine Natividad, Rose Ann Robbels, Charise Double, Gianna Lenes, April Soto and Angel Lojada pulled all the stops needed for a sympathetic 3-0 win.

The team defeated Thailand 1-1 in the semifinals after their first exit from the Philippine Freefire, Men’s Wild Rift, PUBG, and FIFA, securing their first medal at this year’s biennial meeting. Online last Saturday 4.
