Boeung Ket strike down Naga as Svay Rieng held

Boeung Ket went three points clear at the top of the Metfone Cambodian League and piled the pressure on nearest rivals Phnom Penh Crown, who play today, by beating two-time champions NagaWorld 1-0 at the Old Stadium yesterday.

Last year’s runners-up maintained their winning streak, with the only goal of the game coming from Sok Pheng in the first half.

Naga were once again let down by their inability to take their chances.

The win takes Boeung Ket to 19 points from six wins and a draw and a perch at the top of the table.

Meanwhile, Hun Sen Cup holders Svay Rieng, down to 10 men, dug themselves out of trouble only to see Cambodia Tiger FC force a 2-2 draw in yesterday’s late game.
