Crown and Boeung Ket fight goalless opener

Defending champions Phnom Penh Crown and runners-up for the past two seasons Boeung Ket Angkor fought out a goalless draw in their 2015 Mefone C-League opening fixture at the RSN Stadium yesterday.

Hosting the Rubbermen at their newly built Stadium, Crown treated their fans to an entertaining brand of football, but despite stringing out several prominent moves they could not break the stalemate.

The visitors were also quite lively with Khun Laboravy and Chan Vathanaka often injecting pace and purpose but they also ended up missing several gilt-edged chances.

In the day’s early games, Build Bright United destroyed Asia Europe United 7-2, Cambodian Tiger dispatched Police 2-0 and Defence edged Western 2-1.

In Wednesday’s game at Tonle Bati, debutants CMAC did well to hold Kirivong Sok Sen Chey to a 1-1 draw.

Janzen scored for CMAC and Chanvoraksmey netted for Kirivong.
