Hun Sen Cup wraps up provincial rounds

Boeung Ket Rubber Field FC, new entrants to the Metfone C-League this year, stormed into the pre-quarterfinals of the 2012 Samdech Hun Sen Cup yesterday after a convincing 4-1 victory over Kandal in their last group-stage fixture.

The A1 Division runners-up polished off their five-team Group A campaign with an all-in record to take top spot with 12 points.

Chhma Khmao scored a 3-0 victory over Prey Veng to force a three-way tie for second spot in the group with Western University and Kandal.

All three are level on six points apiece.

The other group winners joining Boeung Ket in the last 16 are Asia Europe University (Group B), Pailin (Group C), Koh Kong (Group D) and Steung Treng (Group E).

According to the spokesman for the Football Federation of Cambodia, May Tola, three best runners-up eligible for qualification along with the five group winners will be determined today.

The eight qualifiers from the first phase join last year’s top eight Metfone C-League teams in the pre-quarterfinals beginning in Phnom Penh on January 21.

Asia Europe University from Preah Vihear topped the four- team Group B with a two-win, one draw record tallying seven points. Siem Reap’s Baksey Chamkrong finished second in the pool with six points.

Pailin and Battambang finished level in Group C with three points apiece.

They also ended up with a goal difference of one each, but Pailin, having scored a goal more in all than Battambang, earned qualification.

Koh Kong won both their matches against Kep and Kampot to top Group D with six points.

Steung Treng garnered six points from two wins in the three team Group E to head the pool.
