In their Champions League game, the Crown boys were all over Onslow (ASPECA) in a 14-0 romp that further strengthens their top of the table position.

Other matches saw ISF Flying Tigers defeat MJB (PSE) 4-1 while Juice Master United (CCOLT) were comfortable 4-0 winners over Komar Takhmau. Preah Khan Reach juniors were stretched to their limit before winning 2-1 against The Tynesiders (CCF6) even as the Seasiders dealt the Blue Eagles a 5-2 defeat.

In the U14 Premier league, however, Phnom Penh Crown found the going real tough before prevailing by an odd goal in five. Twice Blue Flag drew level before Crown nudged ahead for a 3-2 win. Hunters (Khmesar Thmey) lived up to their name by hunting down The Blue Eagles 3-0.

Komar Takhmau edged out ANDC Bulls 3-2 but there was no stopping Cains Advocates, who chopped off Black Fins 9-1. In a close contest Malu Lions were mauled by New Hope 4-2.

In the Boy U10s section, Blue Eagles (Andong) suffered two defeats. First Blue Flag floored them 6-2 and in the second, Onslow revelled in a high scoring 15-8 win.

Onslow scored a decisive 3-0 victory over Hunters (Krousar Thmey) in the Girls U18 competition but the other two matches in the group turned out to be close fought affairs. Juice Master United managed to down the Coballers 3-2, as C/S Larrikins (Sunrise) asserted themselves in a 4-2 win over The Blue Eagles.

The Dubai Exiles dominated the Blue Eagles 3-1 in the Girls U14 league, and in the day’s remaining tie, Northbridge Nomads proved too strong for Cambodian Children’s Fund 6 for a 5-2 outcome.
