Cambodians cruise into Vietnamese cup semis

In the first meeting between Cambodian top-tier teams on foreign soil, Moul Daravorn, Sok Chanrasmey and Sam Oeurn Pidor scored a goal apiece for Preah Khan Reach during their 3-0 victory over Pool B rivals and compatriots Phnom Penh Crown to send their team though to the semi-finals of the 2012 Binh Phuoc TV Cup.

Crown were condemned to elimination in the eight-team tournament played in the Vietnamese town of Dong Xoai, 100 kilometres north of Ho Chi Minh City.

In their opening group match last Wednesday, PKR drew 3-3 against under-21 side T&T Hanoi, while Crown defeated Laos National TV 5-1.

On Friday PKR smashed the Lao side 17-0 as Crown fell to T&T 3-0, a result that sent the Hanoi outfit through to the knockout stage.

Another Cambodian invitee, reigning Metfone C-League champions Boeung Ket Rubber Field, have been bracketed in Pool A alongside Laos U21, Ho Chi Minh City and hosts Binh Phuoc.

Boeung Ket need a draw from their match against Binh Phuoc today to secure an advance to the next phase.

The Cambodians beat Ho Chi Minh City 4-1 before losing 2-1 to Laos U21 over the weekend.
