Defending champs fight back to draw newcomers

QUANG NAM (VNS) — Defending champions Ha Noi T&T were given a real scare when they had to come from three goals down to earn a 3-3 draw against newly-promoted QNK Quang Nam.

All the goals came in the second half of the match, after Ugandan striker Henry Kisekka broke the deadlock just two minutes after the break.

Local hitman Dinh Thanh Trung grabbed a double within the space of six minutes to put the home team 3-0 up, but the three-goal cushion failed to stop T&T, and seemed to serve as a wake-up call for the defending champions.

Rising star Nguyen Ngoc Duy initiated the comeback with a goal in the 76th minute, before Hoang Vu Samson and striker Sam Gallagher stunned the home fans with two goals in the last minute of regular time to salvage a point for T&T.

The draw did not change the teams' positions in the table, with T&T in third with three games in hand on 20 points, and newly-promoted Quang Nam in tenth place with 12 points. — VNS
