| PHNOM PENH (4 May 2008) – Phuchung Neak FC began their Cambodian Premier League debut on an upbeat note when they edged Build Bright University 3-2.
Hok Sochivorn was the toast for Phuchung Neak FC when he nailed a hat-trick with goals in the 21st, 23rd and 91st minute.
But the blame for the loss should fall squarely on Build Bright for their inability to settle down early in the first half of the game and failing to build on the momentum which they had carved after the break.
With a crowd of around 3,500 spectators at the National Olympic Stadium in the Cambodian capital, Build Bright only managed to score twice in the second half off N. Syvestraheim in the 55th minute before Sem Bunny gave them a sense of hope with the second goal in the 74th minute.
But Build Bright’s revival came on a tad too late as Phuchung Neak made sure of the three points with the late goal deep in injury time.
