PHNOM PENH—Floorball looks to join the Philippines’ late golden surge in the 32nd Southeast Asian Games as the men’s team advanced to the finals Monday.

The squad completed a sweep of the pool stage after a 13-3 demolition of Cambodia at the Dinosaurs Alive here to clinch the top seed in the five-nation tiff and secure a place in the gold-medal match.

Also beating 2019 champion Thailand (6-4), Malaysia (8-3), and Singapore (2-1), the men’s crew, led by Kim Varga and Melvin Mendoza, finished the pool stage with a perfect 4-0 record.

The men’s team, which assured the Philippines its first medal in SEA Games floorball history, will tangle with Thailand for the gold in the final day of action Tuesday.
