Suwon FC won a valuable victory with a theater goal, taking a step ahead of the lower-tier competition. Suwon FC, led by head coach Kim Do-kyun, gave up the first goal to Kang Doo-ji in the first half of the 27th round of the “Hana One Q K League 1 2023” at Gangneung Stadium on the 19th, but won 2-1 thanks to Lee Seung-woo’s equalizer and Yoon Bit-garam’s theater goal.
Suwon FC increased its share from the beginning and developed aggressively, but it was repeatedly cut off by Gangwon’s tackle. In the 9th minute of the first half, Suwon FC gave up a free kick to Gangwon from a long distance, and Kim Dae-won’s sharp shot slightly missed the goalpost and swept off his chest. Suwon FC gave up the first goal in a situation where it was rarely solved. In the 20th minute of the first half, Kang To-ji jumped on a cross from Kim Dae-won in a corner kick situation and scored a header goal.
Gangwon, which scored the first goal, attacked even harder afterwards. In the 39th minute of the first half, Wellington hit the ball that Kim Dae-won connected from the side to the center but missed the goalpost. Suwon FC’s offense revived just before the end of the first half. In the 42nd minute, Bautersson took the ball from the Gangwon defense line and fired a strong mid-range shot, but was blocked by goalkeeper Lee Kwang-yeon.
Suwon FC, trailing 0-1 in the first half, made a tactical change by putting Oh In-pyo and Yoon Bit-garam in the second half, and immediately scored an equalizer. In the 3rd minute of the second half, Gangwon intercepted a pass from the defensive area to the back and connected it to Lee Seung-woo, who penetrated the ball, and Lee Seung-woo, who caught the ball with his right foot, shook the net.
Gangwon, which gave up the equalizer, launched a stronger attack. In the 11th minute of the second half, Wellington, who was running forward with a cross from the back, received a strong shot, but Noh Dong-gun defended the goal with a super save. Suwon FC then sought opportunities by increasing its market share, but rarely broke through Gangwon’s defensive wall.
Despite Gangwon’s fierce attack, Suwon FC sought to turn the tables with counterattacks from time to time. Oh In-pyo’s strong shot in the extra time was blocked by Yoo Kwang-hyun’s land-based defense. Suwon FC scored a dramatic come-from-behind goal in the ensuing corner kick opportunity. Yoon Bit-garam scored the winning goal by accurately inserting a corner kick from the right side of Lee Young-jae with one minute left before the end of the game.
