JBCF maintain win streak in The Post Mini Soccer tourney

The Kingdom’s two popular cellphone service providers, Cellcard and Beeline, left their market rivalries on the sidelines.

They produced a highly entertaining yet combative contest in The Post Mini Soccer Tournament, hosted by the Kidzcool Children and Family Fun Village on the Chroy Changvar Peninsula.

In a late on Tuesday evening kick-off, the two new-comers to the event stood up as a good advertisement for comraderie and fair play.

A more skillful Cellcard completed a 10-3 victory over Beeline, who were far from disgraced by the margin.

Debutants ANZ Royal rounded out the day's three-match card with a 9-6 win over Kidzcool.

In a high-scoring match, JBCF proved too wily and strong for the Kingdom’s newspaper of record.

The Post found themselves on the wrong side of the equation, going down tamely 4-12 to the Table Toppers, JBCF, who stretched their unbeaten record to five games for an impressive tally of 39 goals.

The Post, who crashed to their first defeat in five games, is currently ranked second on 12 points.

Devenco with nine points and Smart with seven round out the top four in the standings.
