Anvaya League heads into second section

The 2013 Anvaya League past the half way mark of its regular season last weekend, with Bassac FC finally breaking free of the pack to emerge as the early favourite.

The front runners are currently on 19 points from seven games, two points clear of fellow unbeaten side Victory FC, who were held to a surprising 2-2 draw by Tiger FC last time out.

Bassac’s Benjamin Le Grand is still ahead in the scoring charts with 16 goals, with Victory hitman Bun Sokha just one off the pace. This Sunday’s opening encounter at 9am at Mekong University field has rock-bottom Red Cowboys take on the club immediately above them, KhmerDev.

The double set of ties at 2:30pm sees a mouth-watering top of the table clash between Bassac and Victory as well as a battle between PSE and PPIA. Anvaya Sporting Club and Tiger then wrap up the fixture list at 4pm. The knockout stage is slated to start on October 20.
