Kirivong Sok Sen Chey power on in return bid

The once formidable Metfone C-League club Kirivong Sok Sen Chey, relegated in 2015, are in contention for a top flight return next season.

After the second round of matches in the second tier, KSSC lead the table with two wins, their latest triumph on Sunday a 6-0 thrashing of National Defence Ministry Youth that took them to the top of the table with six points, on better goal difference than Sihanouk Ville Autonomous Port.

In sharp contrast to KSSC’s runaway win, the port city side edged past Kampong Chhnang province 1-0 for their second win.

In other matches, Kampong Speu drew 2-2 with National Football Academy, while Svay Rieng province defeated Electricity Authority of Cambodia 2-1. Nine teams are in contention for the two slots for the 2017 Metfone C-League season.
