Naga edge Crown to stay on heels of Boeung Ket

Top-spot chasing NagaWorld claimed the match winner through Soung Virak in stoppage time to down Phnom Penh Crown 2-1 at the Old Stadium, in a match played on Friday after it was postponed from last weekend.

After Crown threatened to disrupt Naga’s rhythm, Mathew Osa threw the casino-backed side a lifeline in the 68th minute.

After their disappointing and unexpected 1-1 draw against Angkor Tiger, the win keeps Naga within range of leaders Boeung Ket, who enjoy a four point lead at the top of the table.

Naga share second spot with Visakha in what is developing into an exciting three-way fight.

The season resumes on August 4 after last weekend’s break.
