Taking on a team from CCASVA in the boys’ U14 Premier League, A New Day Cambodia took absolute control of the match and ran out convincing 3-0 winners.

In the same group, Sunshine were pushed into the shadows by Komar Takhau in a 7-4 defeat, while Phnom Penh Crown’s sub-junior string ousted New Hope 5-2.

In the third match of the day, hosts ISF got past Komar Takhau 4-1.

The girls’ U18 League threw up two fast-paced contests. In the first, A New Day Cambodia upset the apple cart of ISF  5-2, while Aspeca emerged winners over Andong with the same scoreline. Sunrise were listless in their 3-0 defeat by CCOLT.
