Hun Sen Cup Crown hit five past Western

In a reversal of last Sunday’s league thrilling four-goal draw, the Hun Sen Cup fixture in Group C threw up a dazzling 5-0 away win for Phnom Penh Crown over Western Phnom Penh in their repeat clash on Wednesday.

With the foreign component taken out of the equation for this Cambodians only event, Western were not quite as effective as they were when the two sides met a few days before at Western Stadium.

Crown drafted in some talented youngsters from their academy and came up with a splendid second-half performance after the first session was goalless.

In two other Group C matches, league outfit Cambodian Mines Action Center were too good for Pailin in a 6-1 win, while Kampong Speu edged past Kampot 2-1.

In Group D, National Police beat Preah Vihear Province 9-0 after a subdued first half in which the 2014 Cup winners could only score twice.
