For their second practice match in as many days, Crown faced National Police at RSN on Sunday morning. Arsene Ndougou had a couple of early chances, but the Police keeper held onto both efforts, as he did with Khim Borey's twenty-yard strike. Another Borey attempt sailed inches wide of the far post before Ndougou put Crown ahead on 21 minutes. The Cameroonian chased and harried the last defender and keeper and as the ball squirmed loose, he rolled it into an empty net, at the third time of asking. Borey was guilty of too much power and not enough precision, as he blasted a great opportunity over the top just before the break. Five minutes in, George Bisan strong-armed his way through two tackles but found the keeper blocking his route to goal. A little later, another Bisan effort was hacked off the goal-line to safety. In a game where tackles were coming thick and fast, four Crown players were shown yellow cards, but the Police levelled the score with fifteen minutes to go. Yok Ary dropped what looked like a regulation catch from a free-kick and Police pounced on the loose ball to tie the game at 1-1. Sitting out the match through injury were Kok Boris, Lenh Makara and Liam Hutchinson.
