Hun Sen Cup wraps up its group stage

Yesterday’s rounds of the 2011 Samdech Hun Sen Cup saw a predictable conclusion to the group stage, with all top tier teams advancing to the knockout round.

Games of note including a walkover for Kratie after Preah Vihear decided not to show for the match between the two already elimanted teams in group C.

Rithi Sen midfielder Ouk Chandarith was hailed man-of-the-match after his goal helped the Kampong Chhnang outfit win 2-1 against Banteay Meanchey, and grab a place in the next round.

In a watertight group D, Stung Treng took first place via their superior goal difference and Chhma Khmao edged second spot ahead Western University by means of goal scored. All three had finished in the group stage tied on five points apiece.
