Joint second Visakha cut down Crown to close gap

Visakha stuck to their attacking instincts to down Phnom Penh Crown 3-1 at the RSN Stadium on Sunday, as NagaWorld stumbled to a 1-1 draw with Angkor Tiger at Siem Reap Stadium.

The results mean Naga-World now share second spot in the table with Visakha, each on 32 points, with only Naga’s better goal difference separating the sides. Defending champions Boeung Ket are four points clear of the field and remain unbeaten.

Visakha’s North Korean dangerman Cheo Myong-ho gave his side a 25th minute lead, before Ouk Sovan equalised for Crown early in the second half. But goals from Tith Dina and Keo Sokhpeng settled the issue for Visakha.

Away in Siem Reap, Joichiro Sugiyama put the Tigers ahead in the 15th minute. Mathew Osa levelled for Naga in the 40th minute, but the two-time champs could not break down the resilient Tigers and had to settle for a point.

Preah Khan Reach Svay Rieng move up to sixth as they try to make up lost ground after a poor start. The Hun Sen Cup holders beat second-bottom Electricite du Cambodge 4-2.
