Naga, MND climb table after wins

NagaWorld and Ministry of National Defence moved up to joint third in the Metfone C League after wins over Cambodian Tiger 2-0 and Svay Rieng 1-0 respectively on Sunday.

A 73rd-minute goal from Pov Phearith gave the Armymen three points at the Old Stadium to boost their tally to 32 points, the same as NagaWorld who scored once in each half.

In Saturday’s action, Boeung Ket Angkor beat Asia Europe United 5-2 as Phnom Penh Crown trounced Western 10-0.

Hat-tricks from Keo Sokpheng and Bisan George marked Crown’s win that saw Shane Booysen and Leng Makara also bagged a brace each.

Khuon Laboravy stole the thunder at the Old Stadium after Esoh Paul Omogba had given Boeung Ket a 20th-minute lead.

George Kelechi neutralised Boeung Ket’s advantage before Laboravy turned the game around. His first strike came on the half-hour mark and the other three in as many minutes just before the end of the game.

Crown’s win boosted their goal difference to push them to the top of the table ahead of Boeung Ket, both on 45 points, though the 2012 champs have a game in hand. Elsewhere, Kirivong Sok Sen Chey beat Build Bright United 3-1.
