Headline grabber

Prince Justine can't believe referee Tuy Vichheka has disallowed his goal and then booked him - neither could I! Pic:
You can't keep him out of the headlines. Uche Prince Justine was fairly anonymous by his own standards for much of this afternoon's Metfone C-League match of the day as title favourites Phnom Penh Crown came up against a stubborn Khemara Keila and looked to be heading for a rare defeat. That is until The Prince reacted like lightning when Ouk Chheng Hort took too long to clear his lines and the league's top scorer took his tally to six in three games by whipping the ball past the Khemara keeper before he'd even realised. Khemara were crestfallen, having scored two goals in as many minutes through Sophal Udom midway through the 2nd half, despite having been reduced to ten men when Kuoch Sokumpheak was sent off for an out-of-character challenge a couple of minutes before. Oscar Mpoko had given Crown a deserved first-half lead but Khemara never gave up and will feel a little cheated at the final whistle. Referee Tuy Vichheka tried to make his mark on the game, as he normally does, flashing 12 yellow cards and the red for Sokumpheak. There was a touch of niggle in the game but 13 cards is way over the top, again. 2-2 the final scoreline. In the day's opening match, Build Bright took a while to dampen the high spirits of Prek Pra Keila before running out 4-1 winners with recalled skipper Prum Putsethy netting a brace. More from both games later.
