9 out of 9

Mat Sakrovy calmly rolls in his fifth goal of this morning's game
The Phnom Penh Crown Academy U-14 boys rattled in 16 goals without reply this morning as they thrashed the Seasiders from Sunrise in their Barclays Capital ISF Champions League match. Crown continue to lead the table, winning all of their 9 matches, scoring 98 goals and conceding none. Vat Samnang opened the floodgates and netted a hat-trick before the half-time interval. Teammate Mat Sakrovy scored two in the first-half and then scored three more after the break, including a penalty, to top score with five. In Sodavid scored a goal in each half from midfield. At the start of the second half Sraing Titchhy ventured forward from defence and fired in a long range effort, whilst an own goal added to Sunrise's woes. Additional goals came from Theang Chhaya, Vat Samnang and substitutes Yeu Muslim and Pov Ponvuthy. Crown coach Bouy Dary gave his starting line-up most of the match, instead of changing the team at half-time, as is the norm. The rest of the team had played in a friendly game against a much older Prek Kdam team on Thursday, when the Academy lost 3-7, but were up against players as old as sixteen and over. The week before, the Academy had beaten the U-15 Prek Kdam team 4-0. Also Sunday morning, the Crown B-team came unstuck against Aziza, losing 1-4 in the ISF Premier League.
