Brunei struggling in Thailand

Bandar Seri Begawan - The Sultanate's representative at the 15th Asean University Games, Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD), are still seeking for their first win in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

After three days of competition, the contingent have yet to notch a single win in three sports contested.

With only four teams competing in futsal, UBD were hammered in all three matches of the preliminary stage, losing to Indonesia (7-0), Thailand (12-2) and Malaysia (4-1).

The same story of failure repeated itself in karatedo, held at the North Chiangmai University Stadium gymnasium.

In the women's individual kata, Brunei lost 3-0 to Laos before being shown the exit door in the semifinal against neighbours Malaysia by the same scoreline.

Meanwhile, the men lost their only match to Laos 3-0. While the men's kumite -84 kilogrammes exponent was ousted out 1-9 against Malaysia in the semi-final.

In table tennis, the men's team failed to secure a single win against opponents Singapore (0-3), Laos (0-3) and Thailand (0-3).

UBD's pencak silat team, who won bronze in the men's regu during the previous edition back in Kuala Lumpur in 2008, will make their debut in the tournament tomorrow.
