The Indochina Star Fish Foundation’s football tournament for players of all abilities brought together 18 teams of the deaf and hearing impaired from five provinces for a day of intense action at Phnom Penh’s ISF grounds on Saturday as Krousar Thmey Battambang teams swept both the boys and girls sections.
Players with intellectual disabilities from seven organisations that ISF has been working with took part in the tournament, with 216 boys and girls from Phnom Penh, Kampot, Battambang, Siem Reap and Kampong Cham enoying a day of fun on the pitch. Tenacious defending saw Krousar Thmey Battambang team (1) beat the second string of DDP Phnom Penh 3-2 via a penalty shootout to top the all-age boys section.
Lao Haing, Ramorn and Visal scored for Krousar Thmey, while the DDP scorers were Sarith and Veasna. The girls from Krousar Thmey Battambang beat DDP Kampot 1-0 on the strength of Kleong Sreyry’s last minute goal.
