| PHNOM PENH (Nov 10, 2007) – Back to back wins within the space of just three days have given Naga Corp FC the points and their place at the top of the Cambodian Premier League.
Naga Corp FC, who last sat at the top of the CPL in August, beat Royal Cambodian Armed Forces 2-1 before scoring one of their best win this season with a close 4-3 victory over league leaders Phnom Penh Empire.
Despite taking a 2-0 lead at the break off a double from Hok Sotithya (4th and 11th minute), Empire seem to have taken their foot off the pedal in the second half as they allowed Naga to claw back.
A hat-trick (55th, 63rd and 92nd) from Ndjana Pierre as well as another from
But the goal was just a tad too lad for Empire to salvage the one point as they lost all three to a fighting Naga Corp side.
The defeat was a little unexpected for Empire especially when they had ran riot just a few days earlier when they thumped Baksey Chamkrong FC 7-0.
In the meantime, Khemara Keila FC maintained their position on third at the table when they followed up convincing 5-2 win over Red Eagle FC with a slim 2-1 victory over Lion Squad FC.
