With the team merely needing a win against Boeung Ket FC, they instead saw the match off in spectacular fashion with Afgan striker Fareed Sadat netting a brace, as he led Phnom Penh Crown FC to a resounding 5-0 victory.
The win gave Crown a second consecutive title having won the previous seasons C-League, before the introduction of the Cambodian Premier League this year.
The won will be seen as bitter sweet for the Phnom Penh club, who lost their Chairman Rithy Smnang earlier this year.
Phnom Penh Crown FC 5 Boeung Ket 0
Ogawa’s goal in the 16th minute set the tone early on, with Phnom Penh Crown FC catching their hapless opponents flat-footed. Sadat scored two minutes later to double the Phnom Penh Crown FC lead. Their lead ballooned to 3-0 going into half-time when Pisoth snugk a nice shot over the Boeung Ket goalkeeper.
Going into the second- half Sadat scored his second goal in the 67th minute, before Hyrshyn barrelled in a game-sealing goal in the 86th minute.
The marvellous end to the season was an unexpected recovery of sorts for Phnom Penh Crown FC, who did not register a single win until the sixth week of the 2022 Season and for a time at least looked like they might even have a relegation fight on their hands.
