Academy weekend results

Saturday 11 July 2015: PPCFC Academy 1 Nagaworld 2 (Friendly).
The first-half of this entertaining friendly at RSN this morning belonged to the Academy with Umaru Samura scoring the only goal to give PPCFC a half-time lead. On 16 minutes Suleiman Samura's pass down the middle was taken in his stride by Umaru who held off his defender and lobbed the ball over the goalkeeper's head. He had two other guilt-edged chances in the half but both times fired straight at the keeper. At the other end Keo Soksela saved at the feet of Baldwin Ngwa and then turned a shot around the post with a neat one-handed stop. 
The second-half didn't live up to the first period but Naga claimed victory with two goals. The first came on 73 minutes when Jason Thomas pushed Ngwa in the back and Teab Vathanak tucked away the penalty. Three minutes later, Soksela saved Ngwa's shot but Chin Chum was on hand to tap into an empty goal. Naga held onto gain the win.

Saturday 11 July 2015: PPCFC Academy U-13s 3 Chraing Chamres U-15s 8 (Friendly).
After two defeats against the PPCFC Academy U-13s, Chraing Chamres gained revenge with this emphatic victory at RSN. It rained goals in the first-half of this 9-a-side match, with the visitors leading 7-2 at the break. Jonh Chhomrean and a Thong Rathana free-kick netted for the home team, who were playing their fifth match since their formation. On the back of four victories for PPCFC, the second-half was less goal crazy though Crown will be disappointed not to have scored more, hitting the bar twice before Chhomrean scored his second.

Sunday 12 July 2015: PPCFC Academy U-15s 2 Pisnoka 2 (Friendly).
The Academy U-15s drew with Pisnoka on Sunday at the RSN training pitch, allowing the visitors to score with the last kick of the match. Tong Chanmony gave Crown the lead on 34 minutes when he sent a rasping half-volley into the top corner after Yet Chetra's cross was cleared to him. Pisnoka levelled just after half-time when a shot hit the bar and bounced down, judged behind the line by the referee. Chances went begging for the U-15s before Ken Chansopheak steered in Yeu Muslim's bye-line cross on 77 minutes, and then Pisnoka's late equaliser.
