Preah Khan Reach stay top of the Cambodian Premier League after a 2-nil win over Ministry of Defense, with a workmanlike if unspectacular performance this afternoon. With the Army missing three of their best players, Preah Khan did most of the pressing and it was two goals from Nigerian striker Olisa 'Ony' Onyemerea that won them the points. He tapped in after 17 mins and again in injury time to make his mark on the game, whilst his fellow striker Ekene Ikenwa did everything but score. PKR now have 26 points from 11 games. In the 2nd game, Spark started like a train in the pouring rain and led by two goals after just fifteen minutes. Seng Komsen and Sun Sovanrotha getting on the scoresheet leaving fellow striker and the league's top marksman Justine Prince a frustrated figure. Their opponents, Build Bright, snatched a late consolation with a Prom Puthsety penalty in time added on. Today's games marked the last matches to be covered by my pal Dene for the Phnom Penh Post as he's joining the paper full-time to work on their Lifestyle section and won't be able to make future matches. There are two more matches tomorrow and a juicy encounter on Wednesday, when Naga take on Phnom Penh Crown.
