COLT fire to ISF U17 boys’ title

Kan Kosal’s vital goal helped COLT down Bong Paoun 1-0 in the final of the Indochina Starfish Foundation’s Boys U17 Football League at the National Institute of Physical Education and Sports ground on Sunday.

With that snap COLT goal shattering their title aspirations, consolation for Bong Paoun came when the team’s playmaker Hi Kimhong emerged as the top scorer with 16 goals, ahead of his team-mate Chea Westly with 10 goals.

In the third place play-off, Po Monkol defeated Andong 2-0 on the back of goals from Dang Usaphea and Sok Makara.

In the run up to the final, both Bong Paoun and COLT helped themselves to big wins. While Andon proved no match for Bong Paoun, going down 10-0, COLT beat Po Monkol 5-0.

The 11 participating teams in the event were split into two groups, with the top two teams in each group coming through the round robin phase to contest the semi-finals.
