The Academy U-17s set about retaining their U-17 title with a thumping 25-0 win over newcomers Bong Paoun at Tonle Bati this afternoon. The new boys, who won the ISF U-17 Youth League in August, conceded after just 37 seconds and it was all downhill from there. The half-time score was 10-0. Crown netted another fifteen after the break and without a dozen excellent saves by BP goalkeeper Torn Prohpov, the result would've been more crushing. Suon Noeut top scored with 8 goals, followed by Chhuot Senteang and In Sodavid with 5 each. Men Piphop scored 4 and there was 1 each for Pov Ponvuthy, Ouk Sovann (pen) and an own goal. And the Academy were without six of their players because of an Islamic holiday and injuries.
