Svay Rieng eye up No 1 spot in Cup competition

Svay Rieng will play against Vietnamese side Military Headquarters of Binh Phuoc province at 3pm today at Binh Phuoc stadium in the final of the 2014 Number One Cup.

Earlier at 1pm, fellow Metfone C-League club National Police Commissary face hosts Military Zone 7 in the third place playoff. After three successive wins in Group A of the competition, Svay Rieng went on to dispatch their domestic rivals Police 2-1 in Monday’s semi-final.

Samoeun Pidor and Nop Tola netted for the 2013 MCL champions while Noun Borey picked up a consolation goal for the Hun Sen Cup holders.

In the other semi-final, Group B winners Military Zone 7 lost 4-2 to Group A runners-up Military Headquarter via a penalty shootout after ending regulation time locked at 1-1.

The eight-team tournament, which started on December 22, also featured a club from Laos along with three other local Vietnamese sides.

The triumphant team in today’s final will take home prize money of $4,000, while runners up will get $2,500 and third $2,000.
