TriAsia shoot up to the Metfone C-League

TriAsia Phnom Penh FC confirmed the remarkable achievement on Monday of grabbing a place in next year’s top tier competition after just their debut season by edging Asia Europe University 1-0 in their division A1 promotional play-off match at Olympic Stadium.

The Japanese-owned club, introduced to the Cambodian football community less than a year ago, clinched the win through a solitary strike from hitman Sok Chanraksmey.

In Monday’s other play-off match, Takeo’s Angkor United beat Senate Secretariat 2-0 with goals either side of the interval by Kingsley Metu.

Asia Europe will look to bounce back to the MCL after being relegated earlier this year by either drawing or beating Angkor United in today’s crucial clash at Olympic Stadium from 1:45pm.

TriAsia and Senate meet in an academic fixture at 3:45pm.
