SALT Academy tastes sweet success again

Battambang based side SALT Academy overcame an early blunder to clinch their second successive Cambodian Women’s Cup with a 2-1 win over Athik Reach Phnom Svay in the final yesterday morning in Poipet.

Phnom Svay, playing in their home province of Banteay Meanchey, took the lead after Sok Rathana put the ball in her own net on 20 minutes.

SALT’s star striker Huot Kimsong then netted before the break to lead the squads in tied at 1-1.

The deadlock was broken in the 56th minute, Kimsong stepped up to steer her team to victory past the club they also beat last year in the same final.

The losing semifinalist playoff between Siem Reap and Kampong Chhnang had earlier been called off as tournament organisers, the Football Federation of Cambodia, showed compassion to the injury-hit sides by handing them both third place.
