Result: PPCFC Academy U-16s 7 Prek Kdam 2 (Friendly).
In the later game, the older Prek Kdam team fell behind on 10 minutes as Kim Chhaya's bye-line pull back was poked in by Mat Nuron. Three minutes later In Sodavid's pin-point 20-yard free-kick found the top corner for number 2. It was one-way traffic as Nuron scored another, from Chhuot Senteang's pass, on 17 minutes and ten minutes later, Senteang got the final touch to Sraing Titchhy's through ball to give Crown a commanding half-time lead. Prek Kdam came out fighting and netted just 4 minutes into the second half after Kung Chanvuthy was injured in the build-up. Twenty minutes after the restart, Pov Ponvuthy scored with his first touch after arriving on the pitch thirty seconds before, poking in a Titchhy cross. Mat Sakrovy by-passed three defenders and shot goalwards, only for Titchhy to stab it over the line on 67 minutes. Crown scored a seventh as Ponvuthy raced clear from the half-way line to finish coolly on 74 minutes. Job done and a good work out.

Result: PPCFC Academy U-15s 6 Boeung Ket U-15s 0 (Friendly).
With coach Bouy Dary giving his younger Academy players a run-out, Boeung Ket provided the opposition and despite putting up a stern resistance in the first half, were well beaten by the end of the 90-minute match. Men Piphop slotted in the opening goal on 20 minutes from Tong Chanmony's pass and then Seut Baraing pushed up from the back, played a neat one-two and found the corner of the net with a firm strike, nine minutes later. He then struck the cross-bar with a powerful drive as the interval came at 2-0. Three minutes after the restart, Chanmony's shot fell nicely for Piphop to poke in the third. Crown had to wait another half hour before Mao Piseth's shot hit the foot of the post and Nop David tucked in the rebound. With 8 minutes to go, David's shot was saved and Sath Rozak lashed the rebound home. A minute from time, Baraing tested the keeper with a free-kick from out wide on the right and he got his angle spot on, as the powerful drive found the net. Six-nil and a masterful performance. Missing with injuries were Suon Noeut, Sin Kakada, Sok Panha and Lim Pisoth.
