Round 3 of the MCL

Round 3 of the Metfone C-League was completed this midweek and the shock result of the six matches was the continuation of Svay Rieng's indifferent form, being held 3-3 by CMAC (Cambodia Mine Action Centre), the league's newest faces. It needed a late strike from Dzarma Bata, his second of the game, to spare the home sides' blushes after Tony Janzen, CMAC's American import had bagged a hat-trick (taking his 3-game tally to 5 goals) and Phany Y Rotha had pegged a goal back. The Hun Sen Cup holders will need to get back to winning ways against Western Uni this weekend or face dropping further behind the leaders. Boeungket looked uncomfortable for the first half at Army but some woeful defending gave Gbenga Ajayi two goals early in the second period and Khuon Laboravy finished them off at 3-0. Back on top are the reigning champions Phnom Penh Crown, who rattled in three against Cambodian Tiger before the visitors to RSN netted a late consolation just before the break. No goals in the second-half. George Bisan headed in twice for Crown after Sary Matnorotin had opened the scoring. Yoshihara Masato scored for the Tigers. Two goals apiece for Mathew Osa (Western) and Richard Omokafe (BBU) as the team's fought out a 2-2 draw. Nagaworld scored three without reply in the first-half against AEU and that was the final score, with Khim Borey 2 and Barry Lelouma netting for Naga. National Police came good at last with a 3-1 win over Kirivong. Tith Dina grabbed a hat-trick while Em Phanna scored for Kirivong. Pick of the weekend matches: Nagawirld vs CMAC - can the MCL newbies, CMAC, continue their unbeaten run of three consecutive draws? Here's the current league table, courtesy of Sabay.
