In their penultimate Youth League game, the Academy U-17s controlled this morning's game from start to finish at a hard and bouncy BBU field against the Army. Today's captain was Vat Samnang, as coach Bouy Dary is giving different team members a chance with the armband, and he responded with the first two goals to start the game with a bang. On six minutes, Chhuot Senteang fed the ball to Samnang in front of goal and his finish went in off the post. Two minutes later and he struck again, this time slotting his finish inside the upright from Mat Sakrovy's through ball. Eleven minutes on the clock and Senteang put Crown further ahead. From Mat Nuron's pass, the striker, back in the starting line-up after a long lay-off, scored with a confident lob over the keeper. Crown made it four, eight minutes before the half-time interval. Sakrovy was denied twice before his third effort deflected in off the keeper's arm. The 2nd half began much as the first-half did with In Sodavid slotting home from the penalty spot after Sakrovy was felled with ten minutes on the clock. The Army keeper was being kept busy, stopping a couple of efforts from Sakrovy before the attacking midfielder claimed Crown's sixth and his second on 67 minutes. Yue Muslim and Sakrovy exchanged passes and the latter got his toe to the ball before the onrushing keeper to score. Orn Chanpolin and Sakrovy fluffed further opportunities to extend the 6-0 scoreline, which is how the game finished.
