CPL = entertainment

Khemara Keila ran riot over Phuchung Neak, winning 5-0 today

Chan Veasna, one of the scorers for Khemara Keila this afternoon
Great entertainment at Olympic in this afternoon's Cambodian Premier League. Two games, 11 goals, a frantic last-minute comeback in the second game and a virtual walk-over in the opening match, we literally had it all. I covered the games for the Phnom Penh Post so my full match reports will be in the newspaper tomorrow morning. Here's a brief synopsis:
Khemara Keila, with Kouch Sokumpheak pulling the strings as usual, rolled over the Navy boys, Phuchung Neak 5-nil. Lanky striker Oladiji Olatunde scored twice, just before half-time and again in injury time and rounded it off with a somersault celebration. Sokumpheak was also on the scoresheet, as were Chan Veasna and David Adeyinka. One-way traffic though new boy Joel Omoraka looked rock solid at the back.
Post Tel were playing their first game under new coach, and old boy, Kao Nisay and should've closed out the match, leading 3-1 with a minute to go. As it was, Kirivong never gave up, and with goals in the 90th and 93rd minutes, spoiled Kao Nisay's party. The match was even-steven though Post Tel were more lethal until the end. They led with goals from Gafar Adefolarin Durosinmi, a wonder goal from Touch Sokheng, and a penalty by Henri Bitga. Kirivong were not to be outdone and Ouk Thorn, Julious Chukwumeka and Him Salam netted for them, with Salam's goal sending their team and bench into raptures.
Him Salam crowned a great comeback for Kirivong with the equaliser in the 93rd minute

I forgot to mention, the 'peanut princess' was there again today, with her young daughter. Our princess looked radiant in a figure-hugging light grey two-piece outfit that wouldn't have been out of place on a catwalk. However, my new policy is not to publish photos of the married 'peanut princess', so you'll just have to imagine what I saw!

I beg your pardon, but this an absurd policy; to be conseuqent, you shouldn't publish pics of married women any longer, thats the ultimate conclusion one cd derive from your crooked logic. What a disappointment!!! You should at least refrain from mentioning the princess, so you wdn't stir our (out)rage. What's behind all of this is sheer jealousy. Most regrettably, Dexter

Dear Dexter,
Its my decision, now that I found out the 'peanut princess' is married with a small child, I've decided to stop posting her picture out of respect for her situation. If you think its absurd, then that's your opinion. I can assure you jealousy plays no part in my decision at all.
In terms of consistency, I will be as consistent as I want to be :-)
