Putsethy at the double

BBU skipper Prum Putsethy grabbed a brace against Prek Pra
The victorious BBU team, 4-1 winners against plucky Prek Pra
You've got to feel for Prek Pra Keila. They never gave up, showed bags of determination and with more composure in the final third of the pitch, they could've made a game of their match with Build Bright United, that kicked off the weekend's batch of games on Saturday. In the end they lost their 4th straight Metfone C-League match, this time going down 4-1 against a BBU side that started brightly and wrapped it up with a flurry of goals. BBU skipper Prum Putsethy was in the middle of most of his team's good work, recalled after getting dropped for the last game. He netted a header on two minutes but it was disallowed, and he then headed against the woodwork. His time would come. On 33 minutes full-back Chan Pech Chealy popped up at the far post to tap in a bobbling cross from Chan Veasna. Before the break Prek Pra's Wilson Mene fluffed two guilt-edged chances to level. His teammate Philip Ali did the same early in the 2nd half before BBU caught them out by a sucker punch on the hour. Prum Putsethy picked the ball up 25 yards from goal and unleashed a thunderbolt that keeper Yok Ary got a hand to but couldn't keep out. Ten minutes later a neat one-two between Chhun Sothearath and Putsethy ended with the latter coolly lifting his shot into the top corner. Wilson Mene stumbled over a challenge from keeper Sos Proshim to earn Prek Pra a penalty, which Philip Ali converted but four minutes later Phin Pheara was on hand to sweep in BBU's well-deserved 4th. Another tough day at the office for Prek Pra.
