A minute after the restart Makara broke clear and his cross was just inches away from connecting to Touch Sokheng's head. Turdera's free-kick was rolled into the path of Bun Keo but his drive cleared the cross-bar by a foot. BBU's Putsethy headed into Soksela's hands when it seemed easier to score and Sokheng aimed a fierce drive over the bar from outside the box. With Oum Tola miskicking in front of goal at one end of the pitch, BBU broke quickly on the counter-attack and Pich Sina had the simple task of poking the ball in from close range for the only goal of the game on 65 minutes. A flurry of substitutions by Crown failed to have the desire effect though Khim Borey broke clear only to be denied by Proshim's quick dash from his goal-line. That was the last of the goal-mouth activity and Crown went down to their first pre-season defeat. Three Academy youngsters saw action as substitutes with Orn Chanpolin, Sraing Titchhy and Seut Baraing getting valuable match-time and coping well in senior company.
