Boeung Ket Angkor’s trusted attacking pair of Khun Laboravy and Chan Vathanaka scored a goal each to steer the Metfone C-League leaders to a 2-1 win over NagaWorld FC at the Olympic Stadium yesterday.
With this victory, the team’s eighth out of nine matches, Boeung Ket retain the top spot in the standings with 24 points.
After a barren first half, Laboravy and Vathanaka scored within six minutes of each other early in the second session to put the casino-backed side on the defensive.
Coach Prak Sovanara’s side took the field under the haze of last Wednesday’s defeat to the Army in the Hun Sen Cup.
While Boeung Ket managed to keep their end safe for the best part of the game, the quick strikes tilted the scales in their favour, though Naga threatened a comeback with a 73rd minute goal by midfielder Anderson.
Meanwhile, the bumpy ride for National Police this season continued with another frustrating display on Saturday.
The Police could only manage a 2-2 draw against Western Phnom Penh and the result left the two sides stuck at the wrong end of the table.
