    KUALA LUMPUR - Perlas Pilipinas beat Vietnam, 118-44, on Friday in their final game in the 29th Southeast Asian Games women's basketball tournament at the MABA Stadium.

    Perlas finished the round-robin tournament with a 4-2 win-loss slate, with a bronze medal still a possibility. They, however, hope for a loss from Thailand in its next two games to win a bronze medal.

    Thailand holds a 3-1 win-loss record following the victory of Perlas over Vietnam and needs to sweep its remaining match against Indonesia on Friday and Malaysia on Saturday to clinch a medal.

    Perlas, however, must not finish in a tie with Indonesia as it won over the Philippine women's squad earlier in the tournament.

    Cindy Resultay had 26 points and eight steals, while Raisa Palmera-Dy added 23 points for Perlas, which was coming off a 60-56 loss to Malaysia on Thursday.

    Perlas began the rout when they outscored Vietnam, 32-2, in the second period.

    The scores:

    Philippines (118) - Resultay 26, Dy 23, Pontejos 15, Castro 12, Animam 8, Cabinbin 6, Almazan 6, Bernardino 6, Tongco 6, Sambile 4, Abaca 4, Lim 2.

    Vietnam (44) - Huynh 9, Trat 8, T.C.T. Nguyen 7, T.T.D. Nguyen 4, Bui 4, T.L.V. Nguyen 4, H. Linh 2, T. Tran 2, T.D.T. Pham 0, T.T.B. Pham 0.

    Quarters: 20-21, 52-23, 86-33, 118-44.
