Metfone C-League Naga down Soltilo to keep lead

Three of the top four in the Metfone C-League played on Saturday, with leaders NagaWorld returning home from Siem Reap with a 2-0 win over local side Soltilo Angkor at Svay Thom Stadium.

It was the ever consistent George Bisan who provided the spark, first with a penalty in the 65th minute and then firing home a second soon after.

Having established a two-point cushion at the top of the table, the victory further consolidates Naga’s position with just three league matches left to play.

But the most consequential game of the day produced a 2-2 draw between Ministry of Nat-ional Defense and Visakha, who currently occupy fourth and third positions respectively.

Army looked set for all three points at one stage after they led through a Na Hyo-sang brace, the South Korean scoring in the 34th and 73rd minutes.

But Vishaka fought back through North Korean forwards Choe Myong-ho and Ri Hyok-chol who scored twice in a matter of two minutes to ensure a draw.

In the day’s other match, Phnom Penh Crown beat National Police 1-0.
