The Crown Academy boys, who didn't start the game against Frenz Malaysia yesterday, took on the adult team from Kompong Tralach at the RSN Stadium this afternoon. The visitors arrived from Kompong Chhnang province with two trucks loaded with supporters, despite the torrential rain before the game began. The first half was dominated by the Academy with Mat Sakrovy scoring first after 5 minutes with a shot under the keeper's body. Yeu Muslim scored the first of his double on 9 minutes, finishing on the goal-line after In Sodavid's shot struck the crossbar, and again five minutes before the interval from Ly Morslim's pass. In between Morslim, getting a run out from the senior team, netted on 12 minutes, from Mat Sakrovy's through ball, with the visitors scoring from the penalty spot. After the break, Kompong Tralach scored another before Sraing Titchhy ran onto Muslim's pass to score with ease on 78 minutes. Two late goals took the scoreline to 5-4 in favour of the Academy in what was a very open match. All the substitutions came in the second-half.
