Boeung Ket and Crown keep up pace

The Metfone C League resumed on Saturday with front runners Phnom Penh Crown and Boeung Ket Angkor scoring contrasting wins to keep their fierce rivalry going.

Players on national call for Cambodia’s second round campaign in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers returned to their club duties as the season gathers pace in the next few weeks towards the four-team knock-out phase.

Crown had it their own way against Asia Europe United at the RSN Stadium with a 6-0 win after leading 3-0 at the break.

Leng Makara and Shane Booysen fired a brace each with Keo Sokpheng and defender Odion Obadin also on target.

Away at the Army Stadium, Boeung Ket Angkor were made to work for their 2-0 win by Kirivong Sok Sen Chey.

Boeung Ket led early with Esoh Paul Omogba’s goal but despite several promising moves the side could not build on this advantage till midway through the second half.

It was substitute Hong Makara who doubled the lead barely a minute after the restart to ensure three points for Boeung Ket, who have played one game less than the leaders Crown.
