Cambodian Ace Scores Most Embarrassing Headed Own Goal You Will See In 9-0 Thrashing

Published

IT’S one thing being on the end of a 9-0 thrashing, it’s another when you contribute to the downfall yourself.

And that’s exactly what Cambodian footballer Sun Sovanrithy did, and in some style too, with a spectacular own goal.

His team, Boeung Ket collapsed in their AFC Cup match against Ceres Negros – and for Sovanrithy it was a night to forget for sure.

A Ceres man whipped in a cross, and leaping like a salmon, Sovanrithy thundered a header past his own keeper.

The defender slumps with his hands on his knees, as the crowd can barely contain their excitement at the manner of the goal.

He is clearly angry with himself, and receives a pat on the back from an opponent in commiseration.

Predicatbly, there was a fair amount of hilarity on social media once the clip began to be shared.

Joe Dimmer jokingly wrote on Twitter that Sovanrithy “could get a transfer to Sunderland”, while Andrew adds that the manner of the goal scored was “fishy”.

James describes it as “an absolute belter”.

SunSport recently reported on another hilarious own goal, from Al Dhafra ace Yasser Abdullah Al Juneibi.

The defender tried to clear the ball but ended up firing an unstoppable drive into the top corner to put Al Jazira ahead.

His side ended up losing 3-1 after getting off to a terrible start.

Giants Al Jazira are struggling this season and sit fifth in the table after winning just one game in five.

Austin Dillon Takes No 3 Back To Victory Lane At Daytona

Austin Dillon put the No. 3 back in victory lane in the Daytona 500.

Dillon drove the iconic car number made famous by Dale Earnhardt to the win 17 years to the day the Hall of Famer was killed in an accident on the final lap of the Daytona 500. The win also comes during the 20th anniversary celebration of Earnhardt’s only victory in “The Great American Race.”

Dillon wasn’t a factor in his Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet until the final lap in overtime when he got a push from Darrell “Bubba” Wallace Jr. that helped him get to leader Aric Almirola. Dillon spun Almirola then whizzed on by to give Childress, his grandfather, an iconic victory in that beloved No. 3.

“My grandfather has done everything for me and everybody knows it,” Dillon said. “There’s a lot of pressure on me to perform because I’ve had a little bit of everything. But I like that pressure, the same with the No. 3, there’s a lot of pressure behind it, but I’m willing to take it and go with it.

As for the aggressive move that wrecked Almirola? Dillon was doing what has to be done to win at Daytona.

“We just had a run and I stayed on the gas. It’s what it is when you’re at Daytona,” he said. “It is so awesome to take the 3 car back to victory lane, 20 years ago. This one’s for Dale Earnhardt Senior and all those Senior fans. I love you guys. We’re going to keep kicking butt the rest of the year.”

Wallace, the first black driver in the Daytona 500 field since 1969, finished second in a 1-2 finish for Chevrolet and Childress’ engine program.

Denny Hamlin, the 2016 winner, finished third in a Toyota.

Ryan Blaney, who led a race-high 118 laps, faded to seventh after giving the win away in regulation. He wrecked Kurt Busch, the defending race winner, trying to reclaim his lead and the contact damaged Blaney’s Ford.

By

– Bubba Watson holed a bunker shot at the 14th hole to set the stage for a two-stroke triumph at the Genesis Open — and 10th PGA Tour title — in Los Angeles on Sunday.

Watson pulled away with another birdie at the par-five 17th as he shot a closing two-under-par 69 at Riviera.

The long-hitting left-hander finished at 12-under 272 for his third victory at Riviera, after previous successes in 2014 and 2016.

Ben Hogan and Arnold Palmer also won the event, previously known as the Los Angeles Open, three times each.

Fellow Americans Kevin Na and Tony Finau tied for second on 10-under.

A two-times Masters champion, Watson will jump back into the top-50 in the world after starting the week ranked 117th.

Bubba Watson Wins At Riviera For The 3rd Time

Bubba Watson ended two years without winning with his third victory at Riviera.

Watson seized control with two par putts and a bunker shot he holed for birdie on the par-3 14th hole. He closed with a 2-under 69 for a two-shot victory over Kevin Na and Tony Finau.

It was his first victory since Riviera two years ago — the longest drought of the decade for the two-time Masters champion.

He wrapped up another fun-filled week in L.A. on and off the golf course, although winning for the 10th time in his career was far more enjoyable than getting rejected by Tracy McGrady in the NBA All-Star celebrity game.

Watson moves into the top 50 and is eligible for the World Golf Championship next week in Mexico.
