Beoung Ket bash BBU 10-5, Naga Corp win

In quite farcical scenes at the Olympic Stadium on Sunday, 2012 Metfone C-League winners Boeung Ket Rubber Field put 10 goals past Hun Sen Cup finalists Build Bright United while conceding five.

In what may well have been a bad day for the local bookmakers, Kampong Thom-based Boeung Ket, who were already assured of a runner-up spot for the second season in a row, and University-backed BBU, who will finish no lower than seventh, played out the rugby score in front of bemused fans.

In Sunday’s evening fixture, Naga Corp maintained their one-point advantage over fourth-placed Svay Rieng, going into the final round this weekend with a 2-1 victory over Western University, who have secured survival and will finish tenth in the standings.
