Boeung Ket finished their 2018 AFC Cup campaign on a positive note as they beat Shan United 4-1 at the Thuwunna Stadium on Wednesday.

The Cambodian outfit, who started the day bottom of Group F, opened the scoring after 11 minutes when they hit Shan on the counter; Samuel Ajayi playing a through-pass to allow Maycon Calijuri to advance on goal before finishing past Myo Min Latt.

Maycon then turned provider in the 25th minute when he fed possession out to the left to Julius Oiboh, who was somehow allowed to waltz all the way into the six-yard box before calmly finding the bottom corner.

Two minutes after the restart, Boeung Ket notced a third when Oiboh was once again sent racing down the left and played a low ball across the face of goal to leave Ajayi with an easy finish.

The contest was well and truly over in the 63rd minute as Maycon netted his second of the evening, holding off his marker strongly after being played in by Ajayi and finishing into the back of the net.

The evening well and truly belonged to the visitors although Shan managed a consolation with 12 minutes remaining; Zin Min Tun creating space of himself inside the box before stroking a shot past a curiously out-of-position Sou Yaty.

Still, the result ensured that Boeung Ket climbed into third spot on six points, meaning it is Shan who suffer the ignominy of a bottom-place finish in Group F.
