Metfone C-League Naga win to trim Boueng Ket’s lead

Unforgiving Naga-World set AEU Park alight with a 6-1 rout of Asia Europe United to reel in Boeung Ket’s lead in the Metfone C-League just one point.

Impressive debutants Visakha, joint second but behind Naga on goal difference, are turning the race for the top into a three-way fight. Visakha are seven points clear of fourth-placed Ministry of National Defense.

Naga’s attacking options are so flexible and effective, goals were scored at regular intervals.

Kouch Dani opened floodgates in the third minute. Sung Chi Hoon was on the mark next and consistent Mathew Osa got them through the first half at 3-0.

Another set of attackers came in and tormented AEU in the second session Kelechi Stanley and Inui got one each to pad up Bisan George’s double and the rout was complete.

Another home team to suffer at the hands of the visitors were capital club Electicite du Cambodge, who lost 5-0 to Siem Reap side Angkor Tiger.

The top five in the standings are Boeung Ket (39 points); Naga (38); Visakha (38); Army (31; and National Police (24).
