Boeung Ket keep heat on Naga

Defending champions Boeung Ket kept the pressure on leaders NagaWorld by solidly staying just two points behind the leaders with a 5-0 drubbing of second bottom Electricite du Cambodge on Sunday.

With two matches to go in the Metfone C-League title race, one more win will realistically give Naga the title, but a meltdown from the top two could let in the lurking Visakha, who are three points away in third, to dash home for a fairytale first-season crown.

The return of injury-hit Chan Vathanaka to scoring ways was one of Boeung Ket’s high points. The four other goals came from Mat Yamin, Julius Oiboh, Khun Sengthai and Maycon Calijuri.

NagaWorld head the table with 50 points from 20 matches, with Boeung Ket second on 48 and Visakha third on 45.

Ministry of National Defense back in fourth on 36 points.

In Sunday’s other matches, hosts Asia Europe United scored twice in the last 10 minutes of normal time to overhaul Phnom Penh Crown 3-2 at AEU Park.

The still winless Western Phnom Penh took the lead against Siem Reap’s Angkor Tiger, only to concede three in response.
