Phnom Penh Crown turned in a strong second-half performance to thrash Build Bright United 4-0, with Keo Sokpheng netting a brace in a Metfone C League fixture at a floodlit Olympic Stadium yesterday.
The five-time champions retained the top spot as Boeung Ket play today.
The league heads for a short break in which the Cambodian national side travel to Singapore for the return clash in the second round of the World Cup qualifiers on October 13.
Earlier at the Old Stadium, Svay Rieng routed bottom of the table Kirivong Sok Sen Chey 5-0.
The defeat was a big blow for Kirivong’s hopes of getting out of the relegation hole they have been in despite winning their last two games.
