When your luck is out

The Army (Ministry of National Defense) can't wait for the season to end
The Army must be hoping that the Metfone C-League season will end sooner than later. After a great start they have not only stuttered but literally fallen apart in the last couple of months. They haven't won for six matches, losing five of them and today they went down again when a draw would've been fairer. BBU meanwhile needed a win to boost their chances of a Super 4 slot, so they'll be cock-a-hoop with their 2-1 win. The only real action of the first half came in the final few moments when BBU keeper Hem Simay dislocated his shoulder in a clash with Om Thavrak and had to be replaced. Eight minutes after the break, the Army took the lead when Sin Dalin sent Khim Borey away and he kept his cool, rounding the keeper and slotting in his neat finish. Fifteen minutes later, Sophat Chansokunthina, making a rare start, turned on a sixpence and poked in the equaliser. Chances were fairly hard to come by so Khemara had to wait until the last minute to grab the victory and turn the game on its head. Nelson Oladiji got to the bye-line and his cross was rammed home by the timely arrival of sub Nuth Sinoun. BBU were mightily relieved, whilst the Army boys trudged off dejectedly, again. Referee Yien Kivatanak cautioned 4 players and no red cards in today's games.
