HCM City I lead national championship after first period
HCM City I topped the rankings after the first period of the National Women's Football Championship on Monday.
Last year’s first runner up defeated Việt Nam Coal and Minerals 3-0 at Nha Trang’s August 19 Stadium.
Trần Thị Thùy Trang, Lê Hoài Lương and Huỳnh Như scored for the seven-time champions in a match that they dominated.
They had five wins and one draw to take 16 points for the top position.
In later matches on Monday, TNG Thái Nguyên beat HCM City II 2-1 while Hà Nội trounced Sơn La 9-0.
Hà Nội had 13 points like defending champions Phong Phú Hà Nam but stood third because they lost to Hà Nam in their match.
The national tournament will rest for 10 weeks when players are summoned for practice in preparation for the Southeast Asian Championship next month.
The second half will kick off on September 13 at the Hà Nam Province Stadium.
