Army deny Western a first victory

With NagaWorld’s clash with Phnom Penh Crown post-poned until July 27, bottom of the pile Western took the headlines by breaking their 14-week duck with a 3-3 draw with Ministry of National Defense on Sunday.

Western’s first point of the season follows week after week of defeats and hammerings, with now just eight goals to show for 68 against.

But Western looked well set for a much happier ending than a draw, but Army made up a two-goal arrears to deprive the Metfone C-League tailenders of their first victory.

Western took the lead in the first half with goals from Indonesian Yuspen Uopdana and Yan Sokha.

South Korean defender Yoo Jae-ho and attacking captain Roeung Bunheang, however, pulled Army level, only for Keo Udom to fire Western back into the lead in the 86th minute.

But Bunheang’s equaliser two minutes into stoppage time dashed Western hopes.

In Sunday’s second game, National Police Commissary cut down Electricite du Cambodge 4-1.
