No stopping neck-and-neck Boeung Ket and Crown

Striker Khuon Laboravy’s double featured prominently in table-topping Boeung Ket Angkor’s 4-0 win over Cambodian Tiger FC at the Western Stadium, as joint leaders Phnom Penh Crown beat NagaWorld 1-0 at the Olympic Stadium in key Metfone C League fixtures yesterday.

Boeung Ket and Crown are level on 35 points each from 13 matches, both having won 11 of them with two draws.

The season’s leading scorer, Chan Vathanaka got into his stride within the first two minutes of the game to put Boeung Ket ahead.

Khoun Laboravy doubled the lead in the 26th minute to give the side a healthy 2-0 advantage at the break.

Though the Tigers managed to keep the marauding frontline quiet for the best part of the second session, Boeung Ket cracked the rival defence late in the game with Esoh Paul Omogba and Khuon Laboravy firing a goal each in three minutes.

After a goalless first half, Shane Booysen greeted a measured cross with a tidy finish from the top of the box to give Crown the lead they had been threatening for quite some time.

While Crown struggled to turn in goals, Naga had their own missed opportunities.

Boeung Ket Lead Cambodian Tiger FC at the Western Stadium, 2-0.

Chan Vathanaka in the second minute, and Khuon Laboravy in the 26th minute Phnom Penh Crown lead NagaWorld 1-0 58th minute strike by Shane Booysen.
