Run of the mill

Preah Khan kept hold of the C-League top spot with a 2-0 win
Preah Khan Reach retained their top billing in the Metfone C-League this afternoon, with a run of the mill 2-0 victory over Kirivong. It was pretty tame stuff in the first half with Kirivong goalkeeper Kun Thnou getting in the way of a couple of PKR efforts and this theme continued in the second half. On the hour, PKR finally broke through and had Sos Nasiet to thank for a miss-kick that foxed his keeper and ended up in his own net, after Phany Ratha had sent in a harmless center. Eight minutes later and they extended their lead as Khuon Laboravy broke clear of the final defender and easily avoided Thnou's challenge to roll the ball into the unguarded net. Thnou saved a couple more and Chea Samnang struck the cross-bar but PKR were always ahead of their opponents and now lead the table by two points from the National Police.
National Police were held to a 1-1 draw with BBU and stay 2nd
In the first match of the afternoon, BBU were trying to stop National Police from getting their noses in front of the C-League table and managed a creditable 1-1 draw in Sunday's early kick-off. National Police's Nelson Oladiji came up with a nick flick and finish to open the scoring on 17 minutes. The word was that he'd spent the previous few days trying out at a lower league club in Germany. Kao Viso headed an own goal from a Nov Soseila cross on the half-hour only to see the referee wipe it out for an offside, which bemused many in the audience. On 55 minutes BBU's Prum Puthsethy headed in after Saing Komsen took advantage of a rush of blood to the head by Police keeper Thong Chanraksmey and lobbed the ball into the six-yard box. No more goals though Komsen missed a glorious headed opportunity with ten minutes remaining. Police went top momentarily but only until PKR finished off Kirivong in the second game.
BBU will be happy with their fighting draw with the Police
