CAMBODIAN Premier League side Kirivong Sok Sen Chey wasted a golden opportunity Wednesday to put daylight between them and the rest of the teams as they threw away an early lead to lose 2-1 to newly-promoted club Spark FC.

Having gone ahead through inform striker In Vichika after quarter-of-an-hour, Spark showed why they deserved to be given Premier league status with goals either side of the interval by African hotshot Justin Prince and local talent Meak Chhor Daravuth.

In Wednesday's early fixture, National Defence Ministry (MND) and Khemera Keila laboured to a 1-1 draw. National team star and Samdech Hun Sen Cup golden boot winner Kuoch Sokumpheak opened the scoring in the 55th minute for Khemera, but MND forward Um Kompheak equalize midway through the second half.

Kirivong now share the head the table with Preah Khan Reach, who recorded a stunning 2-0 upset over reigning champions Phnom Penh Crown, while Spark FC remain the only side unbeaten in the league and promote themselves to fourth place.
