Incheon University reached the top in the first low-grade soccer competition.
Incheon University, led by head coach Kim Si-seok, won the championship by beating Dong-A University 2-0 in the Tongyeong final of the ‘Promised Land Tongyeong 19th Junior College Football Tournament’ held at Sanyang Sports Park in Tongyeong, Gyeongsangnam-do on the 19th. Previously, Incheon University, which had been unable to participate in the 1st and 2nd grade competitions with lower grade players due to a lack of players, took on the challenge for the first time this year and rose to the throne.
Throughout the first and second half, Incheon University’s ‘window’ stood out. At the center was Hwang Dae-young, the goalkeeper. In the 40th minute of the first half, he opened the goal of Dong-A University, which had been putting on a solid defense. After snatching the ball from the front of the penalty box, he shook the left net with a quick right-footed shot that circumvented the opposing defender’s defense. In addition, in the 43rd minute of the second half when the score was 1-0, Sung Jun-mo’s forward pass penetrated the left side of the penalty area, and he even beat the goalkeeper to score an additional goal with his right foot.
In the group stage, Incheon University defeated strong Yongin University 1-0 and advanced to the round of 16 with 1st place in Group 11 (1 win, 1 draw). Then, Incheon University, which defeated Jungwon University 2-0 and advanced to the semifinals, laughed at the end of the penalty shootout with the ‘defending champion’ Jeonju University on the way to the final. In particular, they conceded the opening goal just before the end of the second half, but Hwang Dae-young, the protagonist of the multi-goal in the final, scored a dramatic equalizer and acted as a solution. 카지노사이트
Coach Kim said, “In the meantime, I was unable to participate in the 1st and 2nd year competitions due to the small number of players, but this time I took the opportunity for the first time in 10 years. He said, “It is an honor to win the championship.” Thank you,” he said. He said, “I prefer pragmatic football. Stable defense and quick attack are the basics. What I emphasize to players more than that is ‘enjoy yourself on the ground for your own dreams’. The main character of the game is the player, so I hope you will do your best without shrinking.”
Incheon National University’s Koh Seok-min left the team due to a cruciate ligament rupture injury. Head coach Kim also emphasized their unified mind ahead of the final, saying, “I asked for more for Seok-min.” Regarding Hwang Dae-young’s performance, “I usually work hard even when others are resting, and my life is positive. He is a player I don’t want to leave out even if I can’t do it.”
Hwang Dae-young, who cited Lionel Messi as his role model, said, “I tried to play for the team in both offense and defense. He scored a goal by guiding his teammates to do it confidently. In particular, he holds me well when sharing a room with (assisted) Junmo hyung. It seems to account for 80% of the goal today,” he said modestly.
Coach Kim and Coach Kwang-Hoon Choi received the best coach award of the tournament. Captain Kim Yeong-hwan became the protagonist of the Most Valuable Player Award, and Hwang Dae-young shared the goal scorer award with Han Jun-young (Hongik University) for 4 goals in the tournament. In addition, Lee Jun-seok (Defense Award) Kang Dae-gyu (GK Award) also had individual awards. By winning the tournament, Incheon National University was also qualified to participate in the Korea-Japan University Friendship Soccer Tournament to be held in Tokyo, Japan in March.
