Julius remains at number 1
There was only one winner in the head-to-head confrontation between the top two goalscorers in the Metfone C-League this afternoon with Julius Ononiwu grabbing the glory as well as two sensational goals to give his team, Kirivong, a much needed 3-2 success in their late bid for a Super 4 spot. It was the 1st defeat of the season for Phnom Penh Crown and their top marksman Uche Prince Justine had what can only be described as a bad day at the office. He not only missed two glorious opportunities, he was twice overlooked as the penalty taker and he failed to add to his 16-goal tally for the season. Julius, his Nigerian compatriot, is now on 21 goals. In the 2nd match Sunday, bottom club Chhmar Khmao will be kicking themselves that they didn't record their 2nd win of the season against Wat Phnom. They stormed back to lead 3-2 as the game petered out but threw too many men forward and paid the price when Wat Phnom equalised. More on both games later.
