Late leveller

National Police left it late to grab a 1-1 draw
Metfone C-League action at Olympic Stadium today saw National Police leave it very late, with just a minute to go, to level matters against Kirivong. A pretty even game looked like going Kirivong's way after Friday Nwakuna put them ahead five minute before the half-time break, finishing off a pass from Mam Sophal. David Njoku hit the post midway through the second half but it was the Police who had the last laugh. Nov Soseila looked dangerous whenever he got the ball and his short pass to Tith Dina, who curled a shot home from fifteen yards a minute from the end gave Police a share of the spoils. Over at the Army Stadium, NagaCorp also left it very late with two goals from Ishola Abiodun in the closing stages to earn them a 2-0 win over AEU. The second game at Olympic saw leaders Boeung Ket win their fifth game in five starts, beating BBU 5-0. New signing Sok Pheng whacked in a left foot drive on 13 minutes and it looked like one-way traffic from there. However, BBU had other ideas and it needed a fine Peng Bunchhay stop and a goal-line clearance to maintain their advantage. Ten minutes before the interval and Keo Sokngon headed in from close range and Chukwuma Ohuruogu did likewise two minutes before the break. Bunchhay had to make two more good saves after the restart to keep his goal intact while Oum Kumpheak headed in the Rubbermen's fourth over a stranded BBU debutant keeper Khek Chan Sambattey. Sumaila Momoh added the final nail in time added on.
