A royal double from the Prince

The CPL's leading scorer with 13 goals, Spark's hot-shot Prince Justine
I know I'm beginning to sound like a long-playing record that's stuck, but the entertainment value of the Cambodian Premier League at the moment is top drawer. Goals galore, thrills and spills in every game and of course there's always the 'peanut princess' to captivate our attention when the football is flagging. Today's feast was served up by Spark against bottom club Phuchung Neak, another six goals and end-to-end stuff all the way. The 4-2 win for Spark took them into 4th place in the CPL but the win was never guaranteed with Phuchung always snapping at their heels. In Justine Prince, or Prince Justine depending on which is his family name - I must admit I'm not sure, Spark have the CPL's top scorer and a man in form. He netted twice today to take his tally to 13 and should've had more. He's strong and powerful, very quick over twenty yards and knows where the net is that's for sure. His strike partner Plong Chanthou also scored twice, his second an unstoppable drive, whilst Phuchung's goals came from a double-strike by the baby-faced assassin Heng Sokly. Such a pity none of the three players managed a hat-trick. My match reports from the weekend's games will be in tomorrow's Phnom Penh Post.

a soccer blog without the Princess is like a wall full of asuras with no apsara dancers to bring us joy...
