Sunday 17 May 2015: Phnom Penh Crown Academy 3 Cambodian Tiger 2 (Friendly).
The senior Academy line-up were too strong for Cambodian Tiger in this afternoon's friendly at RSN. A well-flighted trademark Ouk Sovann free-kick punished the visitors on 10 minutes and Suleiman Samura was all alone to head in Sraing Titchhy's deep free-kick after 29 minutes. Academy keeper Keo Soksela got a hand to Chan Rithy's penalty to divert it onto the crossbar, but the Tigers got a second spot-kick when Pov Ponvuthy handled and Neou Sosela rolled in the penalty two minutes before the interval. Kim Chhaya put Crown further ahead on 55 minutes, toe-poking home Sovann's pass before Sosela netted on the run six minutes later to give the game its final score of 3-2 to Crown.

Sunday 17 May 2015: Phnom Penh Crown Academy U-15s 5 Navy 0 (U-15 Youth League).
The young Academy team recorded their second consecutive 5-0 victory in this morning's Youth League match on the all-weather Western pitch. Mao Piseth opened the scoring with a neat finish on 3 minutes, but they had to wait until a minute before the break when Sin Kakada's left wing cross-shot sailed into the top corner. Crown continued to dominate the game after the break and within three minutes, Chriv Sokundavann lobbed the goalkeeper from 25 yards for number 3. Tong Chanmony's accurate corner was headed powerfully in by Chea Savey on 46 minutes and chances went begging before Mit Samel latched onto Chanmony's pass and scored with the final kick of the game.
