Sampuon, Prey Veng clash in 3G League final

The second edition of the 3G League nine-a-side football tournament reaches its dramatic conclusion today from 4pm at the 3G Field, opposite the Australian Embassy.

Ten teams have battled their way through games since July with the finalists, Sampuon and Prey Veng, now vying for the top prize of US$1,000.

Runners-up will collect $500. Last week, Sampuon hammered Home United 3-0 while Prey Veng overcame Bayon Wanderers 4-2 in the semi-finals.

In the third place play-off on Sunday, which was worth $250 to the winner, Home Sport edged Bayon 3-2 on penalties after the sides finished regulation time locked at 3-3.

Bayon, however, ended up winning the Fair Play Award to bank $100.
