Boeung Ket FC recorded a resounding 4-0 thrashing of lowly Western FC in their Sunday return to domestic Metfone C-League action.

After a five week break in play for international commitments, Boeung Ket fans would have feared rust may have set in, but the defending Metfone C-League champions ended match week 15 fixtures with a valuable win away to Western.

A first-half opener from Brazilian striker Maycon de Calijuri and a second 25 minutes later from Nigerian midfielder Esoh Paul Omogba put the two-time league winners in the driving seat at half-time.

. .

In the second period, a second goal of the game for Maycon was capped by a fourth and final goal from captain Khuon Laboravy to hand the play-off chasing Rubbermen a vital three points.

On 27 points, they now sit in fifth in the league standings, pushed out of the play-off qualification spots on goal difference by Ministry of National Defense.

Western, now with seven defeats, sit in eighth in the 12-team top division.

In Sunday’s other highlight, league-leaders Preah Khan Reach Svay Rieng were in no mood for niceties as they smashed six with no reply past visiting Electricite du Cambodge in a victory at the Svay Rieng Stadium.

The provincial side, on 34 points, now have a five point cushion at the top. NagaWorld and Phnom Penh Crown follow in second and third respectively.

. .

The final league encounter of the day took place at the capital’s Army Stadium where National Police secured a 4-1 win over struggling CMAC.
