| PHNOM PENH (19 June 2008) – National Defense Ministry FC picked up full points in the Cambodia Premier League this week when they beat Phuchung Neak FC 4-2 at the National Olympic Stadium.
National Defense was all offence at the start of the game and in front of more than 5,000 fans; they took the lead in the fifth minute off Khim Bory before adding their second goal of the afternoon with a Laun Sotheara¡¯s strike with seconds remaining to the break.
Um Komphiak then gave National Defense the best of start in the second half with their third goal in the 51st minute as Phiak Rady made it a comprehensive 4-0 lead on 64th minute.
Well in front, National Defense took their foot off the pedal and this allowed Phuchung to come back with two goals from Lappe Lappe (65th minute) and Hok Sochivorn (66th minute).
But their tenacity failed to result in more goals for Phuchung as the score remained to the end.
In the meantime, two second-half goals from Bou Mesa (66th minute) and M. W. Seyinmi (79th minute) gave Preah Khan Reach FC a 3-1 win over Intry Kraham- Post FC.
The score up to the hour mark was 1-1 with N. Kennet¡¯s 47th minute strike cancelling out M. W. Seyinmi¡¯s earlier 39th minute lead for Preah Khan.
