Boeung Ket, Naga stay ahead of the MCL pack

Defending Champions Boeung Ket went through the motions with absolute ease as they swept aside winless Western 5-1 to remain at top of the Metfone C League standings on Saturday.

Boeung Ket’s feared attacking formation headed by Brazilian Maycon Calijuri delivered the punches at regular intervals.

By the time the Brazilian got going past the hour for two quick goals, his frontline allies Julius Oiboh, with a double, and Paul Omogba had given them a three-goal cushion at half-time.

After the game had long been won came a Western goal towards the end from Faizal Nizal, which may have gone some way in lessening some of the pain of defeat as they managed to score for only the fourth time this season, while their own net has been bulged 58 times.

NagaWorld chose quiet efficiency over any spectacular show of strength against Electricite du Cambodge, winning 2-0 with goals from George Bisan in the first half and Mathew Osa in the second.

By virtue of their victory Boeung Ket remain at the top of the table, two points ahead of Naga.

Prak Mony Udom reunited with Preah Khan Reach Svay Rieng much to the delight of fans and to the relief of the Svay Rieng camp.

Udom’s Malaysian jaunt was brief and fruitless. But back at home he got his side’s fourth goal late in the game as Svay Rieng recovered from their recent troubles with a 4-0 win over visiting Commissary of National Police.

A Nub Tola brace was added to by Harley Williard and Udom’s effort.
