Sanvinest Sanatech Khanh Hoa climb to second

Sanvinest Sanatech Khanh Hoa, who were empowered by Kardiachanin Saigon (K.SG) and even being led in most of the match, took risks at right time and finally came back from 2 goal-down to win the match, climbing to second in the table.
 
Coach Ta Duc Dung and his SV.ST-KH players performed good spirit and determination in the tough match with K.SG on October 9. SV.ST-KH approached the match in a cautious manner and created some chances for their opponents.  Huu Thang of K.SG in the 21st minute took advantage of the neglect of defense of SV.ST-KH to send a cross to Ngoc Tung, who scored from a close range. Only ten minutes later, it was Huu Thang again who made a solo run past SV.ST-KH defenders and doubled the lead for K.SG.

After conceding the 2nd goal, coach Ta Duc Dung decided to go for broke when the match had eight minutes remaining. This decision seemed to be risky, but it yielded a surprising result for SV.ST-KH. An attack of SV.ST-KH tore the defense of K.SG, and captain Quoc Bao took a shot at goal, cutting the deficit to 2-1. The comeback of SV.ST-KH finished some minutes later with a goal from Kim Thuan. After that, taking advantage of a mistake of K.SG goalkeeper, Quoc Bao cut in to stroke the ball home, making it 3-2 for SV.ST-KH. K.SG pushed forward in search of a leveler; SV.ST-KH played low to protect the score. While K.SG kept attacking but failing to score a goal, SV.ST-KH had their fourth goal as Van Hanh got the ball from his home side and drove it to the unprotected goal of K.SG.
 
The victory helped SV.ST-KH to climb to second place in the table, being level on points (24) with Da Nang after 13 matches but with better goal difference. K.SG remained at sixth place.
