Cup Fever

Going out at the quarter-final stage after yesterdays Hun Sen Cup matches were Phnom Penh Crown, Svay Rieng, Army and Kirivong. Going through to Sunday's semi-finals are BBU, Boeung Ket (or is it Beoung Ket, they can't decide), National Police and NagaCorp.

So how did the QFs pan out? As we know, BBU sprang the biggest surprise by scoring the only goal of the game at the Old Stadium. Rim Bunheang's free-kick just before half-time did the damage though Crown will feel aggrieved on many fronts, not least their own woeful finishing. Over at Cheng Meng, the Police put paid to Army hopes with a 2-1 win. Still no idea why the game was moved over to Cheng Meng, miles out of the city. At the Olympic Stadium, Naga scraped through with a Teab Vathanak goal downing Kirivong under the lights. In the earlier game, Boeung Ket smacked Svay Rieng 5-1 with all five goals scored by different players. Prak Mony Udom netted Svay Rieng's consolation. In Sunday's semi-finals, BBU will meet Boeung Ket (3.30pm) and National Police take on NagaCorp (6pm) at Olympic Stadium.
