HÀ NỘI — Thái Nguyên defeated Hà Nội 2 in the second match of the second leg of the National Women’s Football Championships held at HCM City’s Thống Nhất Stadium on May 15.

The heavy rain affected the plans and tactics of the two sides. However, Thái Nguyên managed to score their opening goal in the 28th minute, when Hoàng Thị Thảo, after receiving a pass from Huyền Linh, opened the score for her team.

Hà Nội 2 played an attacking game continuously in search for goals and their effort was repaid by Xuân Diệp’s goal in the 39th minute.

After the break, Thái Nguyên continued to control the game, and Lương Thị Xuyến made the score 2-1 for her team in the 83rd minute.

In the other match, Phong Phú Hà Nam tied goalless with former champions Hà Nội 1.

The two teams are candidates for the title this year, hence both teams played aggressively from the moment the referee blew his whistle. Although both sides created many chances, they failed to convert them into goals.

Việt Nam Mineral and Coal, meanwhile, have temporarily taken the lead in the rankings with six points. Phong Phú Hà Nam and Hà Nội 1 are the runners-up, both with four points.

The players will have the day off on May 16 to prepare for the third match of the second leg on May 17-18. — VNS
