In a rush

A youthful Preah Khan Reach line-up that beat Wat Phnom 5-1
I'm in a rush today after a long lie-in, so I'll post the match reports from Saturday's Metfone C-League games later tonight. Suffice to say that the games themselves weren't earth-shattering by any stretch of the imagination, though I did feel a bit sorry for Wat Phnom who looked like getting a point until Preah Khan demolished them with four goals in eight minutes. The second game was a lifeless, barren affair, mainly because Khemara lost all three strikers to suspension prior to kick-off. They were so hard up they put reserve centre-half Suon Makara up front as a battering-ram style striker, though he's such a mouse, that was never going to work. They lost as expected though Kirivong made hard work of it. Just to keep you interested, here's the photos.
Sunday update: Ministry of National Defense moved into top spot in the league table with a hard-fought 4-2 win over Prek Pra Keila, who put up a good fight but found the Army in no mood to give up their chance of sitting top of the Metfone C-League tonight. Their main rivals for top spot, Phnom Penh Crown, were held to a surprise 1-1 draw with BBU, who had keeper Hem Simay to thank for a superlative display on his return after being out injured for well over a year.
