Police leave it late to see off Visakha

A strong second-half performance by Commissary of National Police floored Visakha 3-1 at Old Stadium on Sunday, as the newcomers to the Metfone C-League this season suffered only their second defeat after some eyecatching performances this season.

Noun Borey opened the scoring for Police after 22 minutes only for San Kimheng to produce a cracking equaliser close to the break.

But late in the second half, Police took control through Sang Min in the 73rd minute, before Tith Dina wrapped it up in the 90th minute.

Defeat sees Visakha still in third place in the table, with 13 points, but only on goal difference, as Police drew level following their fourth win.

At the RSN Stadium, hosts Phnom Penh Crown went behind to a goal from Asia Europe United’s Nigerian midfielder Momoh Degule Sumaila in the 53rd minute. In Sodavid equalised to rescue a point for Crown.

At the end of gameweek 7, Nagaworld lead the table with 19 points, followed by Boeung Ket on 17. Visakha and National Police are third, while Preah Khan Reach Svay Rieng and Crown share fifth with 11 points each.

Western Phnom Penh, who hit the road to Siem Reap for their match with Angkor Tiger on Tuesday, are the only side without a point.
