The race for the Boys U10 title in the Barclays ISF Youth Football League took a dramatic turn on Sunday when the second string of Preah Khan Reach forced table toppers Komar Athyreach to share the points in an 8-8 draw at the Phnom Penh Crown FC grounds.


In a match full of shocks and surprises, PKR 2,  the first team to cross the 100-goal mark for the season, matched Komar Athyreach goal-for-goal to stay well in touch of the league leaders.

The draw left Komar Athyreach still on top at 22 points from nine matches to PKR’s 20 points with a game in hand.

At the end of this absorbing struggle, PKR 1 are third in the league standings with 19 points from eight games with Onslow one point behind in fourth from nine matches.

The day also produced another stirring finish when the Blue Eagles 2 edged out the Seasiders 6-5.
