Hat-trick hero Vathanaka helps keep Angkor top

Putting their Hun Sen Cup disappointment to one side, Boeung Ket Angkor remain top of the Metfone C-League after a 4-0 victory over CMAC United at the Bati Center on Sunday.

Boeung Ket only had Dzarma Bata’s 18th minute goal to show for their first-half dominance until Chan Vathanaka’s hat-trick in the final 20 minutes of the game.

An 11th victory of the season stretches Boeung Ket’s lead over Ministry of National Defence, who have a game in hand, to six points.

The Army’s scheduled clash with Western Phnom Penh has been moved to July 24 at Old Stadium, after which the league takes a break for the national side’s friendly against Singapore at Olympic Stadium on July 28.

Despite going down to Police by a solitary goal, Preah Khan Reach Svay Rieng managed to cling on to third spot with 22 points, one ahead of Naga-World, who were involved in a controversial 1-1 draw with Phnom Penh Crown on Friday.

Police move up to seventh, with eight points from 12 matches, after spending some weeks near the foot of the table.
