HÀ NỘI — HCM City 1 strengthened their position at the top, beating Việt Nam Coal and Minerals 2-0 in their 14th round match of the National Women’s Football Championship yesterday at Nam Định’s Thiên Trường Stadium.
Trần Nguyễn Bảo Châu opened the score in the 33rd minute, converting a corner kick into the net with a close-range tap.
Substitute Tuyết Ngân doubled the result in the 50th minute. Ngân received a ball from a counter-attack. She left all Việt Nam Coal and Minerals’ defenders behind to come face-to-face with goalkeeper Khổng Thị Hằng. A low straight shot by Ngân to the left corner gave Hằng no chance to save her net.
HCM City have 39 points, 11 more than closest rivals Hà Nội 1.
HCM City 1, Hà Nội 1, Việt Nam Coal and Phong Phú Hà Nam are the four teams that have qualified for the semi-finals which will be held on Thursday. — VNS
