In the first game, Thailand met Philippines. The latter had showcased good polo during the qualifying stage, but today the local team had a stronger start, overwhelming their rivals. Philippines tightened their attack and made a comeback to put in danger what seemed to be an easy win for Thailand. However, Thailand managed to hold Philippines back and claim a 7-4 win and a spot in the final.
