Controversy reigns

BBU, in blue, are debating whether to walk off the pitch or not in this afternoon's match
Not sure I'll have time to bring you all the details tonight from this afternoon's Metfone C-League games, so here's a brief rundown. In the 1st match, controversy surrounded the equalizing Naga goal against BBU, but the students never gave up and eventually won the game 2-1, making a big dent in Naga's hopes to pressurize Phnom Penh Crown at the top of the table. The match was stopped for 15 minutes as BBU complained bitterly about an offside that the referee never gave and at one time they looked set to walk off the pitch. It didn't happen and the bottom line is that they should've played to the whistle, not to the linesman's flag. More later. In the 2nd match, Preah Khan Reach ran out 3-0 winners in a straightforward victory for them, with coach Rith Dikar back on the bench, presumably having changed his mind about leaving the club.
