A complete mismatch

Keo Sokngorn (10 in red/black) leads out his team of Crown youngsters
The final game of the weekend was a complete mismatch. Phnom Penh Crown beat bottom team Chhma Khmao 9-0 in their meeting earlier in the season and this time around, after Crown had been absent from Metfone C-League action for a few weeks, was very nearly the same. The final score was 9-1 with Ung Dara grabbing a late consolation effort for the no-hopers with a sweetly struck thunderbolt. As for Crown, their line-up was a collection of youngsters led by skipper for the day, 18 yearold Keo Sokngorn. He took his responsibilities seriously and scored twice in the 1st half. Uche Prince Justine did likewise, with two more to his tally and Heng Sokly rolled one in to give Crown a 5-nil half-time headstart. In the second half, The Prince completed his hat-trick, but missed a hatful of others, to take him to 12 for the season, 1 behind Julius Chukwumeka. Substitute Sok Pheng came on to grab a couple, both set up by The Prince and Friday Nwakuna also scored as Crown gave the bottom team a footballing lesson, despite leaving at least half a dozen regulars on the bench.

Nothing short of a miracle can save Chhma Khmao from relegation in their 1st season in the top flight
