|Ek Sopheap's two late goals gave Kirivong a 3-1 success v Army|
In the 2nd match, Preah Khan Reach would've expected to steam-roller Chhlam Samuth from the kick-off but it never quite worked out like that. In fact the team languishing in one of the two relegation places were bolstered by no less than seven new signings and it showed, as their grit and determination blunted the PKR strikeforce, who boasted Khuon Laboravy and new face Olawale Bologun. PKR's class told in the end but they can't be happy with only Nen Sothearoth's goal separating the two teams. It came on 72 minutes and carried a stroke of good fortune as his cross caught the wind and sailed into the top corner via the gloves of new keeper Hong Ly. With a few minutes remaining, Chhlam Samuth's skipper Sunday Ayodele looked to have worked a shock leveller but after taking it around keeper Sar Sophea, he inexplicably chose to pass to a teammate instead of smashing the ball home, and the chance was gone. The last two matches to be played tomorrow, before a 3-week break in the league programme, see Boeung Ket take on the season's surprise package National Police, whilst Phnom Penh Crown need a win over bottom club Western Uni to kick-start their revival.
