Result: Phnom Penh Crown U-17 Academy 1 BBU 0 (Friendly).
The Crown Academy left it very late, the 3rd minute of time added on, to win this hard-fought friendly match at RSN Stadium this afternoon. The match-winner was Chhuot Senteang with a powerful header from Seut Baraing's corner, as Crown finished the game the stronger of the two teams. The match started slowly with the Academy stepping up their game with Baraing and In Sodavid having shots held by the BBU keeper, before BBU hit the post at the other end with a header. Senteang broke clear only to screw his shot well wide and the game remained scoreless at the break. Senteang was denied by both keeper and goal-post just 40 seconds into the 2nd half and with BBU going close twice, it was Crown who pulled the strings in the last ten minutes. Senteang, free, drove across the face of goal, Orn Chanpolin whacked a 25-yard drive against the cross-bar and Sraing Titchhy's shot was deflected wide by a desperate lunge. Then Senteang sealed the result with his fine header on 93 minutes.

Result: Phnom Penh Crown U-15 Academy 7 Roy7 Select 3 (Friendly).
The younger Crown Academy team dominated this match from start to finish and showed their adult opponents no mercy, but will be disappointed to concede three goals. At the other end, Tong Chanmony, moved up to striker, scored on 11 minutes from Sin Kakada's pass and Nop David stroked home a penalty on 24 minutes after San David was upended. Roy7 pulled a goal back but Chanmony was enjoying himself, and scored his second on 27 minutes and then headed his hat-trick on 31 minutes from Sok Panha's pinpoint center. Crown hit the woodwork three times through Mao Piseth and twice by Chanmony before the break. Twelve minutes into the 2nd half, Chanmony netted his 4th with a lob courtesy of Kakada's pas, new face Phom Oay slotted home on 76 minutes after a clearance hit teammate Kie Rina, and Piseth walked in a goal from the half-way line two minutes later. Roy7 scored two more but were well beaten on the day.
