PKR pip it
Shorn of a few regulars, Preah Khan scraped a 1-0 win over Kirivong
This result could've gone either way with Preah Khan Reach coming up with the all-important winner five minutes after the break, though Kirivong Sok Sen Chey had enough chances after the goal to have earned a share of the spoils. They weren't quite up to it. It was pretty much PKR's first half with Khuon Laboravy, Kao Kiri and Tum Saray missing takeable chances and Ande Apollo flashing the best effort wide and high from six yards out. Kirivong had a solo headed effort against the bar from Julious Chukwumeka to show for their pains. Chea Samnang ghosted in at the far post, five minutes after the interval, to smash PKR into the lead though Kirivong replied with a Sen Kamsen header rebounding off the post a minute later. With the bit between their teeth, Kirivong went in search of the equaliser. They should've had a penalty when San Narith flattened Him Salam but the referee waved play on to everyone's disbelief. Chukwumeka had two more chances to level the game but failed and is yet to find his scoring boots this campaign. The same goes for Kirivong who went down to their third successive defeat.
Kirivong will kick themselves that they didn't pick up their first point of the season
