Army hunt down Tiger FC in Metfone C-League

North Korean import Choe Myong Ho powered Ministry of National Defence to a 2-1 win over Cambodian Tiger FC on Sunday at the Olympic Stadium as the Army outfit maintained their status as the joint Metfone C-League leaders with Boeung Angkor.

Taking the pitch after Boeung Ket’s odd-goal-in three victory over NagaWorld, Army faced a seventh-minute scare by Tomoki Muramutsu’s strike for the Tigers. However, undeterred by that snap goal, the Army drew level in the 40th minute when Choe Myong Ho produced a set piece beauty to land his swerving free kick in the net.

Ten minutes into the second half, the North Korean striker notched up the go-ahead goal to help his side keep the momentum entering the 10th week of league action and the Hun Sen Cup quarterfinals on June 22.

Preah Khan Reach, Svay Rieng moved up to third in the standings with a 4-0 home victory over Asia Europe United while defending champions Phnom Penh Crown got past Cambodian Mines Action Center 4-2 after taking the break 2-1 ahead.
