Hannam University won the first ever spring college football league match.
Hannam University, led by coach Park Gyu-seon, faced Yonsei University 2-2 in the Tongyeong Ki final of the ‘Promised Land Tongyeong 59th Spring University Football Federation’ held at Sanyang Sports Park in Tongyeong, Gyeongnam on the 26th, and then scored in a penalty shootout. We won 5-3 and won.
Hannam University drew attention by reaching the top of the first freshman and sophomore competition in July of last year under coach Park. Coach Park, who played a key role in the men’s soccer quarterfinals at the 2004 Athens Olympics, puts forward the color of a rear-end build-up similar to former coach Paulo Bento, who led the A national team’s command tower until last year. After showing results in the lower grade competitions, he accepted the upper grade competitions in 7 months. On the other hand, Yonsei University, which boasts 11 victories, the most in this tournament, knocked the top three years after winning the 2020 tournament, but had to be satisfied with the runner-up.
Both teams battled fiercely from the start. It was Yonsei University that took the lead. In the 10th minute of the second half, in a corner kick situation, defender Lee Seung-min, who joined the attack, connected the ball to the gate with a right-footed turning shot. The ball hit the Hannam University defense and refracted, splitting the goal. In pursuit, Hannam University scored a lucky equalizer in the 35th minute of the second half. It was also a corner kick opportunity. Yonsei University goalkeeper Choi Kang-seo tried to kick the ball with his fist, but sent it to his own goal, resulting in an own goal.메이저사이트
At the end of the second half, both teams continued to struggle, including a battle of nerves, but could not score any more. In the end, it led to an overtime match. Hannam University succeeded in scoring the second goal before the end of the second half of overtime. Kim Min-gi’s header hit the post and flowed, but Park Se-woong pushed it. However, Yonsei University showed off its amazing tenacity. Right before the end of the second half of overtime, Seung-Min Lee joined the attack again, beat the Hannam University defender, and scored a dramatic equalizer with a lightning-fast right-footed shot.
The owner of the championship cup was covered by a penalty shootout. It was the 4th kicker match that mixed joy and sorrow. With the two teams facing each other 3-3, Park Se-woong, number 4 of Hannam University, split the goal. Yonsei University had Lee Seung-min, who scored multiple goals, but the right-footed ball cut through the air. In the end, Hannam University’s last kicker Lee Ho-young succeeded in scoring and the game ended.
Coach Park said, “I’m happy just to reach the finals for two consecutive years, and the results were obtained because the players worked so hard.” I don’t think training is good. Every time, a confident player is called a car. He worked well in trusting and entrusting it.” He said, “A lot of senior players are disappearing (in college football) these days. I think it motivates players who work hard until the end. I want to give hope that I can get a job (professional) even when I am in my senior year,” he said.
On the other hand, in the final of the Battle of Hansan, which was held the previous day, Dankook University competed against Jeju International University and trailed 0-2. Dankook University won last year’s U-League Wangjungwangjeon, followed by the Spring League Confederation.
