HA NOI (VNS)-- Ha Noi 1 proved their dominance yesterday with a 3-1 victory over HCM City in the fourth round of the National Women's Football Championships at the Ha Nam Stadium.
The former champions needed only nine minutes to find their first goal, which came courtesy of a fierce Nguyen Thi Hoa strike.
Two minutes before the break Hoa grabbed a second with a tap-in.
HCM City narrowed the gap in the 52nd minute after Bao Chau received the ball in the box from a free kick and found the net.
Their new-found hope was extinguished just six minutes, when Ha Noi's Viet Nam international Minh Nguyet scored a miraculous goal from 16 metres.
Ha Noi held on to secure their fourth win in four, leaving them sitting comfortably at the top of the tournament table on 12 points. HCM City remain on seven points while hosts Ha Nam are third on six points. -- VNS
