The Phnom Penh Post Mini Soccer Championship saw the four teams for its playoff finals all but decided Tuesday night at the Astroturf pitch of Kidzcool Children & Family Fun Village on Chhroy Changvar peninsular.

JBCF secured top place from the regular season for the second time running after a second half domination saw them dismiss Infinity 10-5. The team, managed by Dutch football fanatic Billy Barnaart, will hope to improve on their disappointing double losses in last year’s playoffs with success at this campaign’s showpiece scheduled for the morning of Saturday February 26.

JBCF’s opponents in the semifinals will almost certainly be Infinity, who need either just a point from their remaining game against Ezecom or for PPPost to fail to win all of their last five matches and overturn a goal difference deficit of 42.

The other semifinal has been confirmed as a match up between last year’s finalists Devenco and Smart. Reigning champions Devenco suffered a shock 11-9 defeat at the hands of Cellcard Tuesday, while Smart were not so like their namesake in the second half of their match against PPPost as they surrendered a commanding lead to leave with a 6-6 draw.

Tonight’s fixtures are void of the top four, with only PPPost vying to grab anything other than bragging rights.
