Visakha FC claimed a 3-2 win away at Soltilo Angkor in yesterday’s Metfone C-League action, while Preah Khan Reach Svay Rieng continued their dominance with a 2-0 win over National Police Commissary.

Playing in their first competitive fixture without coach Hok Sochivorn, Visakha struck early on as former Naga-forward Sary Matnorotin gave the visitors the lead just two minutes into the game.

Soltilo soon struck back to equalise through Japan’s Fumiya Kogure but Keo Sokpheng was on hand to edge the visitors ahead once more in the 30th minute.

In the second period, Yuta Kikuchi levelled the game for the hosts in the games 52nd but Brazilian forward Eliel da Cruz Guardiano struck a fine match winner in the 77th minute to send Visakha home with all three points.

In Phnom Penh’s EDC Stadium yesterday, Preah Khan Reach Svay Rieng had Privat Mbarga to thank as the deadly forward struck a fine brace against National Police Commissary to keep the provincial side on top of the table for another week. Preah Khan Reach Svay Rieng now lead the table on 35 points with 14 games played.

In Saturday’s matches, Angkor Tiger handed a 3-1 defeat to Ministry of National Defense at the Siem Reap Stadium, while Electricite du Cambodge defeated Kompong Cham by the same scoreline. Kirivong Sok Sen Chey narrowly secured a 1-0 win over Bati Academy U18s.
