Metfone C-League games was a real tasty affair with 3rd (Preah Khan Reach) meeting 4th (the Army). And it was the Army who came out on top to put a dent in PKR's title hopes and to go to the top of the league table themselves, leapfrogging over Phnom Penh Crown by a point, though Crown have two games in hand. The game itself was one of the better ones seen so far this term with Preah Khan playing more of the football, but the Army were up for the game and in the faces of PKR, which put the Military Police-team off their stride. Khuon Laboravy and Prak Mony Udom should've perhaps done better with the four chances they had between them before and after Army took an 8th minute surprise lead. A ball from the right found Phuong Soksana in space at the far post and he rifled in the opportunity from six yards out to put the Army's noses in front. With PKR mis-firing at one end, it was left to Phlong Chanthou to show them how it's done when he lifted a boot to loop the ball over the head of Ouk Mic in the PKR goal, after their defence failed to handle a Pheak Rady free-kick. 38 minutes on the clock and the Army were buoyant. They began the 2nd half in a similar vein, looking hungry with PKR appearing a little shell-shocked. Chin Chhoeurn was playing out of his skin, ably supported by a masterclass midfield performance by Oum Kumpheak, and it was the nippy winger Chhoeurn who put the Army into raptures with a 3rd goal on 58 minutes. Kun Kuon put the ball into space, Chhoeurn used his speed to race onto it and buried his shot past Ouk Mic with some ease. On 70 minutes PKR were handed a lifeline by the referee. He saw Khek Khemarin's byeline challenge on Phany Y Ratha as a foul and pointed to the penalty spot. Army were incensed but Laboravy waited for the commotion to die down before rifling home his spot-kick. Sou Yaty, looking every inch the best keeper in the country, came to Army's rescue with ten minutes remaining, when he saved Ratha's powerful drive and grabbed it at the second attempt as the striker shaped to score. Laboravy was also denied and in the final moments Ke Vannak missed an open goal at the other end when Ouk Mic flapped at a Rady free-kick. Army go to the top of the table with this 3-1 win and Preah Khan are left to rue what might have been.
