Ratanakkiri boys crowned champions of U13 event

Ratanakkiri Royal Cambodian Armed Forces Academy capped off a stunning campaign in the 2014 National Football U13 Championships on Sunday as they beat fellow finalists Phnom Penh Empire 3-1 on penalties to lift the coveted trophy.

The fifth edition of the weeklong tournament, played at the National Football Centre in Tonle Bati district of Takeo province, saw the Ratanakkiri army team tear through the field, winning all their games and scoring an impressive total of 44 goals.

With the scores locked at 1-1 after regulation time, Ratanakkiri held their nerve on spotkicks over their city-based rivals. Son Lychay collected the Golden Boot award for his peerless 20 goals scored, while his Ratanakkiri teammate Vet Di was awarded the Golden Gloves as best goalkeeper.
