Boeung Ket snuffed out in Singapore Cup

It was a game of two halves for Metfone C-League champions Boeung Ket Rubber Field, who were crushed 4-1 by S League side Tanjong Pagar in the opening round of the 2013 RHB Singapore Cup on Friday.

The Cambodians held out against their Singaporean opponents at the Jalan Besar stadium to go into the break still locked at 0-0, but an explosive end to the second half had the home side take the lead on 66 minutes through Frenchman Ismael Benhamed.

Tanjong pushed ahead with a strike from local player Asraf Abdul Rashid before the visitors pegged one back via a Benhamed own goal. In the final 10 minutes, Algerian Kamel Ramdani converted a spotkick and Monsef Zerka of Morroco slammed the door on Boeung Ket’s run in the competition.
