The 2nd half saw a glut of goals, beginning just two minutes from the restart, as Makara won a tackle to collect Seyha's cross and poked the ball over the line. On 56 minutes YMA netted a penalty through Oladiji after the referee ruled a shot struck Chea Dara's hand, when it actually struck his face. The YMA keeper was being kept busy with Hasan and Hong Pheng bringing out the best in the custodian, and when he saved again from Pheng, Hasan blasted the rebound wildly over from six yards out. In the 69th minute, a 20-yard Boris drive was saved but Sothy was on hand to roll the loose ball over the line. YMA netted their third four minutes later. Pheng rounded the keeper but found a defender scuttling back to save his shot and then turned on a sixpence but saw his fierce drive strike the cross-bar. With eight minutes remaining, Pheng's perseverance paid off when he rose to head in Sothy's well-flighted corner kick and then claimed a second with three minutes left on the clock. Boris took off on a trademark run into the box, passed to Pheng and the striker's shot was straight and true from fifteen yards out to end the scoring at 6-3 to Crown.
