Bassac maintain grip on league lead after tie

The top of the table clash between Bassac FC and Victory FC produced a thrilling 3-3 draw on Sunday in the 2013 Anvaya League.

Victory, buoyed by the presence of new Nigerian recruit Philip Ogaga, looked to steal a march on the league leaders as Bun Sokha moved to first place in the scoring charts with a brace.

However, Bassac equalised late on to stay two points clear of their rivals. In other games at Mekong University field on Sunday, KhmerDev ensured Red Cowboys remained firmly rooted to the bottom of the table with a 9-2 rout, while PSE edged PPIA 5-4 in a game not without its incidences.

The day’s concluding fixtures saw Tiger FC down Anvaya Sporting Club 2-0. New signing Sunday Silva notched a goal before getting sent off for an altercation with Anvaya captain Phirun Meng, who was also red carded.
