Cup surprises

National Police are through to the cup semi-finals
The results from the other Hun Sen Cup quarter-finals, following on from Preah Khan Reach's 4-0 win over Crown, saw National Police spring a surprise in beating BBU 2-1, with two late goals. I'm pretty sure Police will now meet PKR in the semis, unless the federation have changed the draw, which is very likely. At the Olympic Stadium, Naga Corp needed a Teab Vathanak goal four minutes from the end to defeat Kirivong. And another shock lay in store in the last quarter-final with a defeat of the Army by Chhlam Samuth, on penalties, 1-1 after extra time then 6-5 on spot-kicks. That's a bit of poetic justice for the military boys who have stuck their oar in to deny Crown and Boeung Ket from fielding their strongest teams in this competition. The semi-final pairings look set to offer up a Naga v PKR cup final this coming Sunday, if everyone reads the script carefully. The semis are on Friday (tomorrow).
