Third title for Phnom Penh Crown

Phnom Penh Crown won the 2010 C-League by defeating Royal Sword (also known as Preah Khan Reach) 4-3 in an exciting championship final at the Phnom Penh National Olympic Stadium on Saturday.

It was the third Cambodian championship for the club, after those of 2002 (when known as Samart United, the name under which the club was founded that year) and 2008.

Crown had only finished fourth in the regular stage of the league, despite having the most proficient attack of all ten clubs, scoring 56 goals in 18 matches. In the first stage of the play-offs they defeated defending champions and table toppers Naga Corp 4-2 to reach the final.
