Prek Kdam downed

The Academy starting line-up. Back Row LtoR: Chanpolin, Senteang, Sodavid, S Samnang, Sovann, Titchhy. Front Row: Phearath, T Chhaya, Nuron, Chansopheak, Muslim.
With no game in their regular league competition, the Phnom Penh Crown Academy took the opportunity to play the Prek Kdam Muslim Development team on Sunday morning at the RSN Stadium. Pitting themselves against a team a few years older then themselves, it was one-way traffic for most of the match, though the first-half only saw a single goal advantage by the interval. Chhuot Senteang, Mat Nuron and Yeu Muslim all went close before Senteang headed in Muslim's cross for a 28th minute opener. Just three minutes into the second half, In Sodavid's through ball allowed Muslim to crash his shot home for number two. Soon after, Muslim turned provider again and Senteang finished it off with a delightful chipped goal from 20 yards. Quick feet from Nuron resulted in a foul and a penalty which Sraing Titchhy finished with ease. Next, Sodavid picked out Men Piphop's surging run as he took the ball around the keeper to score. Rounding off the scoring, Muslim supplied rampaging full-back Ken Chansopheak and he squeezed the ball through the keeper's legs to emphasis the difference in class. Another five-star showing from the Crown Academy against bigger and older opposition.
