Shan United defeated Yangon
United by a score of 2-1 and
secured the championship of
the General Aung San Shield
2017 tournament yesterday afternoon
at Aung San Stadium
The teams were equally matched and played with intensity in their quest for the championship, but it was Shan United who scored the icebreaker at the 45-minute mark. Shan’s efforts wane in the second half, scoring a second goal by its key striker Christopher at the 56-minute mark.
Two consecutive goals by Shan United compelled Yangon to go on the attack, resulting in Yangon’s key player Ceazar scoring his team’s first goal at the 60-minute mark. Although Yangon tried to equalise, Shan’s defenders were strong enough to clear the ball.
This was Shan United’s first tourney championship.
