With their coach's half-time blast ringing in their ears, Crown came out on the front foot and drew ahead within four minutes. Mao Piseth's initial shot was blocked by the keeper but skipper-for-the-day Sin Kakada followed up to score. Noeut and Chhaya, twice, had further opportunities to increase the lead before Noeut got on the end of a Piphop chipped free-kick and diving full length, guided his header into the corner, on 62 minutes. Eleven minutes later and Piphop got his name on the scoresheet with a lovely half-volley from Chhaya's left-wing cross. It took another three minutes for Noeut to complete his hat-trick. Using his speed off the mark, he raced onto Piphop's pass and finished with the confidence of a player who has scored 34 goals in five matches. Not bad for a defender. Two more goals in the last couple of minutes sealed a 7-1 win in Crown's favour. Seut Baraing put Chhaya in space and his first-time lob nestled in the net with a minute to go. Sub San David had the last laugh, two minutes into time added on, when the tiny midfielder arrived at the far post to tap home a neat move involving Piphop and Thy Ronaldo. That made it five wins in five games for the Academy U-15s, with goals scored at 86 and conceding just two.
