The late late show

Preah Khan Reach beat BBU with a late goal from Khuon Laboravy (11)
Third-placed Preah Khan Reach are getting into the habit of scoring late late goals to win Metfone C-League games. They did it against Prek Pra last week and then again this afternoon against BBU. It wasn't a great game to be frank though PKR just shaded it after a bright opening from BBU where they pressed but without really breaking through. There was only 1 goal in it at the death, scored by who else, Khuon Laboravy. I was getting ready to talk about both teams firing blanks when with a minute to go, the lanky PKR hitman latched onto a Prak Mony Udom pass, wrong-footed Rim Bunhieng in the box and clipped his shot over the shoulder of Hem Simay. It was his first real attempt on goal in the whole game, and his 13th goal of the league campaign. Up until that point he had been content to supply the ammunition for Udom and Phany Y Ratha to miss the target. Tum Saray was also guilty of spurning a good opportunity as PKR held the upper hand in goalmouth activity in the second period. BBU's best chance of the game fell to Seng Kosen at the end of the first-half but he could only touch a cross against the foot of the upright. Preah Khan cemented their third place in the table.
BBU will feel a little aggrieved at losing this afternoon
