Nine-man Police hang tough for draw with Svay Rieng

National Police Commissary fell off the pace of the Metfone C-League frontrunners, but should be commended for holding on to a 1-1 draw against reigning champions Svay Rieng despite ending their Sunday night game at Olympic Stadium with nine men.

Police goalkeeper Yoshida Yasuyuki was sent off in just the eighth minute for handling the ball outside the area, with Svay Rieng’s Prak Mony Odom converting the ensuing free kick.

However, Noun Borey helped the Police level the scores on the stroke of half time with his own set piece special.

Police defender Ieng Tin collected his second booking of the game in the 76th minute but the team dug deep to see out the sharing of the points.

Police are now fourth in the table on 11 points behind leaders Crown, who have 13 points, while Svay Rieng lurk in sixth on eight points.
