Even as the senior wing of Preah Khan Reach were closing in on their Samdech Hun Sen Cup triumph, the sub-junior string was celebrating a hard-fought 12-8 victory over Onslow (ASPECA) in the boys’ U10 section of the Barclays Capital ISF Youth Football League at the Phnom Penh Crown grounds in Tuol Kork on Sunday. On a day of absorbing contests, ISF Tigers defeated The Blue Eagles 7-3 while Malu Lions (Sunshine) crafted an 8-4 win over The Blue Flag in the same division.

The Tynesiders were no match for Phnom Penh Crown in the boys’ U14 Champions League. Crown scored at will in a 15-0 rout.

In other matches, Juice Master United beat ISF Flying Tigers 4-1, Onslow eked out a 1-0 victory over the Seasiders, while Preah Khan Reach and MJB (PSE) returned with an identical 4-0 wins over Komar Takhmau and The Blue Eagles respectively.

In the boys’ U14 Premier League competition, Phnom Penh Crown’s 8-6 win over Malu Lions stood out in sharp contrast to one-sided affairs in the day’s other three games.

ANDC Bulls recorded a 9-1 win against Hunters (Krousar Thmey), Komar Takhmau plundered New Hope 13-2 and The Blue Flag took CCASVA for a 10-0 ride.

While the Coballers edged past the Flying Tigers 5-2 in the Girls U18 section, ANDC Bulls cleaned up the Hunters 11-1. In an evenly matched clash, C/S Larrikins drew 3-3 with Onslow (ASPECA)
One-sided outcomes were also the order of the day in the two girls’ U14 league encounters. Super Sonics (Hagar) went down tamely to C/S Larrikins 3-0 and the Blue Eagles were too good for ANDC Bulls, winning 5-0.
