George is spark for Naga in big victory over EdC

NagaWorld’s move at the start of the season to take George Bisan away from Hun Sen Cup winners Preah Khan Reach Svay Rieng to reinforce their attack paid handsome dividends on Sunday.

The Nigerian hit a hat-trick in his side’s 5-1 win over Electricite du Cambodge in their Metfone C-League tie.

After Sos Suhana had given the casino-backed side a 41st minute lead, Bisan stretched the lead with two more.

Fellow Nigerian Mathew Osa bagged a piece of the action a minute before regulation time as Bisan came back to complete his hat-trick in the first minute of added time.

Newly promoted Visakha again grabbed the headlines with a 2-0 win over Siem Reap-based Angkor Tiger, with the North Korean pair of Choe Myong-ho and Kim Kyong-hun scoring a goal each in a matter of four minutes.

Despite some sustained effort by Angkor Tiger in the second session, Visakha firmly held onto their advantage.

National Police Commissary and Preah Khan Reach Svay Rieng played out a goalless draw at Olympic Stadium.
