Phnom Penh Crown played out a 4-4 draw with 10-man Boeung Ket at the Smart RSN Stadium even though they tried to push hard, but Hao Socheat’s side stood firmly to snatch a point.

Shane Booysen scored on his return to Phnom Penh Crown for the second spell to put the Red Singha in front inside ten minutes of the play. Dzarma Bata’s bicycle kick was blocked, and Shane Booysen picked up the ball before firing an effort deflected by Hong Pheng and hit the back of the net.

Chan Vathanaka headed home from Oiboh Julius’s cross to equalize for Boeung Ket in the fourteenth minute, and ten minutes later the Cambodia international striker scored his second goal to give Boeung Ket a 2-1 lead.

Paulo Victor received a long ball and made a sublime cross with his right foot for Shane Booysen to draw Phnom Penh Crown level with a header that hit the ground and bounced over Boeung Ket goalkeeper Hul Kimhuy.

In the thirty second minute of the play, Boeung Ket were down to ten men after Sleh Sen was booked for the second time after the right-back pulled Brak Thiva, who was trying to play a quick counter attack.

Just three minutes into the second half, Dzarma Bata scored his debut goal for Phnom Penh Crown to make it 3-2. The forward slotted home from Shane Booysen’s brilliant low cross.

However, a minute later Oiboh Julius equalized for Boeung Ket for the second time after his cross went over Phnom Penh Crown goalkeeper Saveng Samnang into the top corner. Oiboh Julius’s free header from Chan Vathanaka’s free-kick delivery saw Boeung Ket lead 4-3.

Sath Rosib’s poor clearance from Seut Baraing’s cross met second-half substitute Mao Piseth, who then finished it nicely to make it 4-4. Paulo Victor’s two late misses mean the second Cambodian Classic Match between Phnom Penh Crown and Boeung Ket ended up in a thrilling 4-4 draw.
