Crown dominated this practice match, switched to Olympic Stadium, from start to finish, and deservedly led but will be disappointed to concede two goals. Strengthened with the return of 5 players from national team duty, it was fit-again George Bisan who rammed home Odion Obadin's header for Crown's 1st goal on 13 minutes. 4 minutes into the start of the second of 3 periods of 35 minutes, Koen Bosma's sharp eye saw a gap and his free-kick was perfectly aimed. 4 minutes later and Adriano Pellegrino's 30-yard drive crept under the body of the keeper and over the line for number 3. TriAsia scored against the run of play on 52 minutes but a minute later, Bisan headed home at the far post to round off a smart Crown move involving Pellegrino and Bosma. On 75 minutes, Baldwin Ngwa headed in a pull-back from Va Sokthorn, and though TriAsia scored again on 81 minutes, there was only one team in it. Match report to come.
