Carrying on where they left off the previous day, after defeating the FFC Academy 6-0, the Crown youngsters took the game to the Japanese boys from the Global Football Academy in Singapore and opened the scoring in the first minute. Mao Piseth tapped in from close range from Kim Chhaya's cross. Chhaya lobbed a shot onto the crossbar before Piseth added his second on 17 minutes, taking a pass from Sin Kakada in his stride and working the space to role his shot inside the far corner. Three minutes later Sath Rozak was felled in the area and Kakada put the penalty kick into the corner. On the stroke of half-time, Seut Baraing's long ball sent Piseth away and he rounded the goalkeeper to net a first-half hat-trick. Within fifty seconds of the restart, Chhaya fired in from the edge of the box after a cross was cleared straight to him. GFA pulled a goal back on 40 minutes as Crown rang the changes and missed some good chances. On 46 minutes Lim Pisoth weaved his way past three players and though his shot was saved, Piseth followed up to stroke the ball home for his fourth. Three minutes from time - each half was thirty minutes duration - Suon Noeut put in Sok Panha and his near post shot crept inside the upright. In stoppage time, Piseth set up Noeut and he made no mistake firing past the keeper. Two games and two victories for Crown in the Yamaha Challenge International tournament.
