Twelve minutes into the 2nd half and Chhlam Samuth were celebrating once again. Pov Samnang showed classy control and a neat finish as he put his side 3-1 ahead after Sanni found him with a 30-yard pass. Within two minutes BBU gave themselves a lifeline when Pech Sina headed in Chan Veasna's free-kick and it looked like they'd turned the corner. A long distance Veasna chip was tipped over the top, Putsethy rattled the cross-bar from the edge of the box and Sina had two chances go astray as BBU huffed and puffed but couldn't break down the Navy defences. The dejected faces of the student team said it all at the final whistle; reputations count for nothing in football and there's always hope for the underdog.
