Svay Rieng coast on through to next round

Reigning Metfone C-League champions Svay Rieng stayed on course to chase their third Hun Sen Cup title by sealing an advance from the group stage with a 3-1 win over Asia Europe University at Olympic Stadium on Wednesday night.

Some suspect defending saw AEU’s Sary Matnorotin push his side in front after 34 minutes as the 2011 and 2012 Cup winners fell short on numerous chances to find the net.

However, Svay Rieng found their feet in the second half with Nen Sothearoth picking out a peach of a strike on 52 minutes, before Phany Rotha volleyed them into the lead moments later.

Rotha then put the Group B clash beyond doubt with a competent finish off an inspired ball over the top.
