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