In this afternoon's RSN Stadium practice match, the Crown Academy took their chances and bossed the match for long periods against their traditional rivals Savy Rieng, who will appear in the Hun Sen Cup under the name of Tuol Kork. Mat Noron got on the scoresheet after 4 minutes with a smart finish from Chhuot Senteang's persistence. Noron then did the dirty work, beating two defenders with his quick feet, to set up Senteang for a measured finish on 21 minutes. SVR hit the post and cross-bar, courtesy of a fingertip Kung Chanvuthy save, before pulling a goal back on 36 minutes. Two quick-fire goals from Yeu Muslim after the break put Crown in command and they took charge until the final whistle. Just 24 seconds into the 2nd half and Muslim slotted home after In Sodavid caused headaches for the defence. On six minutes, Sodavid's run and pass gave Muslim another tap-in goal. SVR had a player dismissed for punching Pov Ponvuthy. On 76 minutes, Senteang broke clear and set up Sodavid, who rolled the ball in to make it a convincing 5-1 success for Crown.

The younger Academy team from Crown again dominated their opponents from the FFC Academy, who will join the Dream Asia U-14 competition in Thailand tomorrow. With positional changes giving Crown a new look at RSN this morning, Tong Chanmony gave them the lead after just 23 seconds,when he neatly clipped home from Pich Sovannaroth's through ball. On 29 minutes Chea Savey poked the ball in after San David crashed a corner against the cross-bar. Kie Rina made it 3-nil on 55 minutes when he pulled the trigger after a lay-back by Mao Piseth.
