Eight in a row

Boeung Ket's Rubbermen stretched their lead at the top with a 1-0 win.
It was a case of as you were at the top of the Metfone C-League after the weekend matches. Boeung Ket found the going a little tougher than usual, managing a solitary goal success against the 2nd-placed team Preah Khan Reach. Bisan George netted his 10th of the season in his team's 8th straight win. That was the first game on Saturday, with Crown's goal-less draw with AEU as the follow-up match. Over at the Army Stadium, BBU punished Senate 4-0 with new face David Ekelechukwu Ogodogun (your guess is as good as mine as to his surname) netted two in quick succession early doors and rounded off his hat-trick in injury time. Not a bad start at all for the new arrival. Prum Putsethy added one more to the total. On Sunday, Kirivong shot down the Army with two goals from Friday Nwakuna and another from substitute Savorn Ratanak Visa, with Phoung Soksana scoring for Army in a 3-1 defeat, that moved Kirivong into third place in the table. Naga and National Police fought out a 2-2 draw with the lead changing hands. Naga opened up through Prak Chanratana before An Jinya levelled from the spot and Joel Omoraka put Police ahead, only for Teab Vathanak to equalise on the hour. In the final matches before the Khmer New Year break, Naga meet Kirivong on Wednesday and National Police face off against BBU the same day.
Preah Khan retained 2nd spot despite losing.
