Boeung Ket win fails to stop Global in Singapore Cup

Cambodian league champions Boeung Ket pulled off a 2-1 win over Global Cebu Fc in the second leg of their RHB Singapore Cup quarterfinal on Friday, but the victory failed to stop the Philippine champions from making it to the semifinals 4-3 on aggregate after they won the first leg 3-1.

Striker Paolo Salenga, whose brace in the first leg helped fashion his side’s win, scored early for the “People’s Club”, as Global are fondly known, taking his two-match tally to three.

Faced with a three-goal deficit, Boeung Ket battled back with goals from Khoun Laboravy in the 10th minute and Emoh Omogba just past the hour mark. Despite throwing everything at their rivals, the aggregate equaliser eluded them.

In all likelihood, Global will face S.League side Hougang United, who beat NagaWorld 4-1 in the first leg on Friday.

Hougang will go out with confidence and a three-goal advantage for the second leg today, which kicks off at the Jalan Basar Stadium at 6:30pm Cambodian time.

Hougang were well served by Japanese midfielder Fumiya Kogure, who scored twice and assisted Pablo Rodriguez with the third. Fairoz Hasan completed the tally.

Metfone C-League top scorer Atuheire Kipson converted a penalty to pull one back for Naga.
