HÀ NỘI – Việt Nam Coal and Minerals enjoyed their first win, beating Sơn La 2-0 in the second round game of the National Women’s Football Championship on May 12.
The game was played at the Hà Nam province stadium.
While Coal and Minerals completely overshadowed the newcomers, they could only open their score in the 29th minute. Hà Thị Nhài converted her free kick into the first goal of the match after goalkeeper Mê Thị Hòa despite her best efforts failed to cover the net.
Sơn La played better in the second half but were unable to prevent the second goal by Nhài who netted the ball from a close range.
Coal and Minerals will next play TNG Thái Nguyên who lost 0-1 to hosts Phong Phú Hà Nam in a later game. The only goal came from national striker Nguyễn Thị Liễu in the 31st minute.
The win has pushed Phong Phú Hà Nam to the top of the rankings with two wins. They will play bottom-placed Sơn La on Sunday.
Meanwhile, HCM City will play Hà Nội 1 and HCM City 2 will complete against Hà Nội 2 on May 13 in the two other matches of round two. – VNS
