Western win to blast out of relegation zone

Western University snatched a dramatic 3-2 victory over bottom club Albirex Niigata in their Metfone C-League regulation dogfight on Sunday night at the Olympic Stadium.

Chet Veasna opened the scoring on 26 minutes for Western, with Albirex hotshot Yuseke Ueda levelling things just moments later.

However, Western hit straight back through Tim Sam Oun to go into the break 2-1 up.

Li Sarath then pushed them further ahead just before the hour mark as Ueda notched his second later on that proved ultimately consola-tory.

The result lifted Western out of the drop zone and two points above Kirivong Sok Sen Chey.
