Army spring a surprise

Metfone C-League Round-up.
The Army sprung a big surprise in yesterday's Metfone C-League game against champions Svay Rieng at their home stadium, winning 3-1 and registering their first win of the season. Soksana and Vannak gave them an early lead and Chhoeun added another late on. Dzarma headed in Svay Rieng's consolation. In the other game at the same venue, AEU drew 1-1 with Kirivong. Following the big match at the Olympic Stadium, where Boeung Ket beat Phnom Penh Crown 3-1, Western Uni went down 2-0 to BBU, who recovered after a couple of disastrous results to win the clash of the university teams. Sunday afternoon saw NagaCorp take on Albirex Niigata and two goals from Barry Lelouma at either end of the game sealed the points in Naga's favour, with a 2-0 scoreline. Albirex showed some nice touches but no penetration. In a tight game under the lights, a single goal and a screamer from Suong Virak from thirty yards on the hour settled it for TriAsia against National Police. Crown remain in first place in the league table on goal difference from Naga, TriAsia and Police, with five games played.
