The reigning champions needed only two minutes to find the back of the net with a brilliant shot by Vu Xuan Du. However, Sanna Khanh Hoa proved things were not so easy for Thai Son Nam as captain Mai Thanh Dat slotted one in from close range to level the score nine minutes later. The equaliser inspired Khanh Hoa to play more confidently, creating a lot of difficulties for the opposite side. Nguyen Phuc managed to score mere seconds before half time, helping his side successfully reverse the situation. After the break, Thai Son Nam made some substitutions which proved effective, allowing them to reclaim control of the game. Thai Son Nam players celebrate a goal during the match.
