The Crown Academy U-15s needed a victory to maintain their 100% record in winning this year's Youth League title, and they did just that. Tiny midfielder San David was the matchwinner, with a sweet drilled shot from the edge of the box with just 2 minutes to go, at Tonle Bati yesterday morning. The champions held the upper hand in the 1st half with the FFC keeper keeping his goal intact with some fine saves including a superb Sin Kakada lob, which he tipped onto the crossbar. After the break, Svang Samnang in the Crown goal was called on to make three good saves and FFC hit the crossbar with a fluke rebound, before San David settled the game in the closing stages, much to the delight of his teammates. More later.
