Working hard to stay on the heels of the leading trio of NagaWorld, Boeung Ket and Visakha in the Metfone C-League title race, Ministry of National Defense kept up the pressure with a 3-1 victory over National Police on Sunday.
Army are fourth, six points adrift of third placed Visakha on 35 points. Naga are top on 44, with Boeung Ket just two points adrift with four matches remaining.
Army dominated the first half and led through goals from Na Hyo-sang and Reung Bunheing.
Chhin Chhoeun made it 3-0 before Prak Vanny reduced the margin for Police.
In Sunday’s other matches, Asia Europe United drew 2-2 with Electricite du Cambodge after the sides shared two goals in the first 10 minutes.
AEU then went 2-1 up with George Kelechi’s 17th minute goal and kept the lead for nearly an hour before EdC equalised through Mat Noron.
Western Phnom Penh fell to yet another defeat, this time going down 3-1 to the off-form Preah Khan Reach Svay Rieng.
Yuspen Uopdana had the consolation of bagging a rare Western goal.
