Men’s Doubles pairing Ryan Tong & Dhanny Oud snatch a nail-biting third game over Tigers’ Dacmen Vong & Jonathan Curtin, with a 12-10 score-line in the deciding game.

Despite the Hawks’ 3-1 lead, the Tigers’ Justine Villegas seized her opportunities well, claiming the Women's Doubles and Mixed Doubles with partners Sally Fu and Edward Lau respectively.

With the tie level at three matches apiece, a Golden Game was in order. With Men's Doubles selected, it was Manota and Dhanny Oud for the Hawks, taking on the Tigers' Lau and Dacmen Vong. In a game of narrow margins, both pairs held match-point opportunities before the Manota and Oud snatched a two-point lead, awarding the Golden Game and the tie to the HEYTOUR Hawks.
