Barclays Capital ISF leagues kick-started

Players battle during a Barclays Capital ISF Youth League game at the Phnom Penh Crown FC field in Tuol Kork on Sunday.

It turned out to be a field day for the aptly named outfit A New Day Cambodia in both the boys’ and girls’ sections on the opening day of the Barclays Capital ISF Youth League played at Phnom Penh Crown FC’s field in Tuol Kork on Sunday.

Taking on a team from CCASVA in the boys’ U14 Premier League, A New Day Cambodia took absolute control of the match and ran out convincing 3-0 winners.

In the same group, Sunshine were pushed into the shadows by Komar Takhau in a 7-4 defeat, while Phnom Penh Crown’s sub-junior string ousted New Hope 5-2.

In the U14 Boys’ Champions League section, Phnom Penh Crown were far too good for Komar Athyreach, scoring a runaway 13-0 victory, while Metfone C League giants Preah Khan Reach saw their junior boys eke out a 5-3 victory over CCOLT. In the third match of the day, hosts ISF got past Komar Takhau 4-1.

The girls’ U18 League threw up two fast-paced contests. In the first, A New Day Cambodia upset the apple cart of ISF  5-2, while Aspeca emerged winners over Andong with the same scoreline. Sunrise were listless in their 3-0 defeat by CCOLT.
