After the break, HAGL created several dangerous situations, but they failed and had to depend on a penalty shootout.
With this win, HAGL walked away with VNĐ50 million (US$2,200).
The annual tournament was sponsored for the first time by Thái Sơn Bắc Electric Equipment Trading Company, which is also sponsoring the National Women’s Football Championship. — VNS
