Title-holders Phnom Penh Crown followed their last week’s win over NagaWorld with another convincing victory, this time taming the Cambodian Tiger FC 3-1 under the lights on home turf at the RSN Stadium on Thursday evening.

Crown joined Boeung Ket Angkor as joint leaders with seven points each after three matches.

NagaWorld are third on six points ahead of Build Bright United, who are one point adrift.

Away at the Svay Rieng stadium, the home team had a surprise in store for them as the champions were held to a 3-3 draw by debutants Cambodian Mine Action Center.
