Sunrise boys and girls dominate ISF League

The aptly named Sunrise from Kampong Speu hogged the limelight in the inaugural AIA-ISF Youth Football League by recording an impressive double in winning both the Boys Champions league and Girls U14 titles at the ISF Grounds on Sunday.

As many as 100 teams took part in the league, which kicked off in late November. With opportunities opening up through the ISF league competitions, more and more disadvantaged players from communities, organisations and schools inside and outside Phnom Penh showcased their talents this season.

According to the Indochine Starfish Foundation (ISF), the league had also created a space where players promoted sportsman-ship and teamwork.

After a season stretching to 20 weeks of action, the final day produced several exciting finishes, including Sunrise boys’ 7-5 win over KHM Academy, while the U14 girls from Sunrise were head and shoulders above Cheoung Kerp School in a 12-2 drubbing.
