A 1-1 draw was the final result of this afternoon's friendly at RSN though Naga have their goalkeepers to thank for a series of outstanding saves to deny Crown a victory. It was Naga who took the lead when Barry Lelouma poked home from a corner on 19 minutes though Sary Matnorotin and Shane Booysen will wonder how they didn't score in the first of three 30-minute periods. George Bisan levelled the score with a thunderbolt of a strike from 20 yards after Booysen latched onto Jeongho Kim's pass and set up his teammate with 53 minutes on the clock. Booysen was again denied and so was Bisan and then Santi Koroma as Crown created the chances but failed to find the back of the net.
