    THE PHILIPPINE Punishers beat the Saipan Sharks, 13-6, on Saturday in an American football exhibition game at the Philsports field in Pasig City.

    Jai Merchant turned an interception into a touchdown in the third quarter, breaking a 6-6 tie and lifting the Philippine squad to its third straight win.

    Both teams scored a touchdown in the first half but failed to convert on the point after in a match held under the scorching afternoon sun.

    The American Football Federation of the Philippines is using the Punishers friendly to generate interest in gridiron football.

    It was the Punishers’ first game in Manila after victories overseas against the Hong Kong Cobras and the Beijing Guardians.

    The Punishers first played in Clark Field, bowing to Guam.
