Naga Corp move ominously back to the top of the table with their win on Sunday. Top scorer Teab Vathanak is centre back row, number 10.Moving onto the Sunday matches in the Metfone C-League, we now have new league leaders in the shape of Naga Corp, who brushed aside Prek Pra, but not without the odd missed heartbeat. Joseph Oyewole was head and shoulders above every other player on the park as he bossed Naga's midfield and in Teab Vathanak they have a man with the knack of being johnny-on-the-spot more often than most. Vathanak scored both Naga goals to join Julius Chukwumeka at the top of the scorers chart with 11 goals to-date. His first was a volley from six yards out, his second was a free header from the same distance. He does his best work inside the penalty area and can be relied upon to take a tumble in every game, accompanied by the appropriate piercing scream, though in this match the referee didn't fall for his antics. However his goals, one in either half, were enough to win the day for Naga and send them back to the top of the table. They aren't playing particularly well but they are grinding out results as they march relentlessly to retaining their championship title. Prek Pra's consolation was scored by Put Sothera just after half-time. A quick word on Naga keeper Mak Theara. This boy needs to be taught a lesson and I hope one of the strikers in the league will do that soon enough. He has developed a distasteful habit of fly-kicking strikers when he collects the ball and referees are turning a blind eye to his antics. Someone needs to stop his nasty little game.
Why are teams near the bottom always called plucky? Anyway, here's the pluckmeisters from Prek Pra Keila.
