Big wins for Svay Rieng, Crown in U17 games

Phnom Penh Crown Academy boys were merciless against Western University in their FFC U17 Championship clash on Sunday at the National Institute of Physical Education and Sport field, romping home to an 8-1 victory.

Crown’s In Sodavid bagged a first-half hat-trick and team-mate Mat Nouron hits goals in both the first- and second-half stoppage times.

In Chanpolin, Mak Sakrorvy and Yeu Muslim also found the net for Crown, while Western’s Thong Sopheak struck in the 26th minute in what turned out to be his side’s only positive note.

In Sunday’s other U17 fixture, Svay Rieng sent the Civil Aviation team crashing with a 5-0 rout. Cheam Ratana was starred with a four-goal haul including three netted in the space of 13 first-half minutes, while substitute Mey Puthavy made his own contribution to the drubbing.
