On the domestic front

I still find it mind-boggling that the federation went through with two Metfone C-League matches yesterday afternoon, over at the Army Stadium, instead of postponing the games so more players and fans could go to watch the AFC President's Cup games at Olympic Stadium. As it turned out, Kirivong came good again, making leaders NagaCorp battle for a point apiece in a 1-1 draw, in the early kick-off. An own goal by Sos Nasiet gave Naga the lead just before the half-hour. Egyptian import Rada Badry levelled a few minutes later and that's how it remained until the final whistle. In the 2nd match, Nhim Sovannara gave BBU the lead but after that it went downhill for the students. Their opponents Preah Khan whacked in five without further reply to stroll to an easy three points. Finding the target for PKR were Lay Raksmey, new arrival Nigerian David Njoku who has returned to the club after a stint in Thailand, an own goal by Phin Pheara, Tum Saray and Prak Mony Udom. PKR have also added former Khemara and Navy player Joseph Olatubosun to their squad though he didn't feature yesterday.
Update: In this afternoon's C-League matches at the Army Stadium, Boeung Ket beat Western Uni 4-1. The students took an early lead through Philip Ali but there was only one winner and that was achieved through Friday Nwakuna with two goals, Chukwuma Darlington and Keo Sokngorn for the Rubbermen. In the second game, national Police went back to the top of the table, two points clear of NagaCorp, with a 3-0 won over bottom club Chhlam Samuth. Tith Dina and Sim Vutha with two strikes just before half-time wrapped up a sixth win in eight games for the Police.
