Kouch Sokumpheak, deadly as usual, this time with a hat-trick
Preah Khan Reach kept their noses in front at the top of the Cambodia Premier League with a 2-1 victory over previously unbeaten Spark FC. An early goal from Saidu was cancelled out by Spark's top scorer Justine Prince a minute later. In a tight affair, sub Tum Saray netted the winner for PKR, who did just enough to maintain top spot. In the opening game on Sunday, Khemara Keila's national team striker Kouch Sokumpheak
took the honours with a second half hat-trick, his first a penalty to cancel out Post Tel's first half lead through Chamroeun. KK teammate Olatunde tapped in a fourth as Khemara ran out easy 4-1 winners in the end. In the crowd today, new national coach Scott O'Donell, who has decided on his backroom team and will announce them shortly, is currently running the rule over each CPL team to identify the cream of Cambodia's under-23 talent, ready for the SEA Games in Laos in December. Also in the crowd was my favourite peanut seller, who today carried one of the widest trays on her head that I've seen at the footy stadium. I must find out her name.
