Khim Borey doesn't look like a man that has just scored twice and won the game for his team does he?Cambodia's star striker and last season's Golden Boot winner Khim Borey was the difference between the two teams in this afternoon's opening game. Ministry of Defence stupidly sidelined him and keeper Samreth Seiha at the start of the Cambodia Premier League season and he reminded them why that wasn't such a good idea with both goals in their 2-nil win over Post Tel Club. A wickedly curling free-kick and a safe-as-houses penalty was his telling contribution, though his national teammate Seiha only made it to the bench on his return to the fold. The Defence management had accused five players of throwing a cup tie before the league season began but thought better of it and reinstated them, but without any explanation. In the second game, Kirivong maintained their great start to the season with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Naga thanks to a goal by one of their Muslim contingent, Him Salam, in first-half injury time. And if In Vicheaka had his shooting boots on, it could've been a larger winning margin. Naga, with half a dozen national team players, failed to shine.
