Suwon move ahead, Gwangju hit six
Suwon Bluewings moved provisionally top of the K-League standings today with a 4-1 victory at second-bottom Gangwon FC.
First-half goals from Yang Sang-Min and Ha Tae-Goon set the visitors on their way, with further strikes from Seo Jung-Jin and Everton putting the result beyond doubt before Kim Eun-Jung's late penalty consolation. The triumph moved the Bluewings two points ahead of FC Seoul, who host Ulsan Hyundai tomorrow.
There were also emphatic victories today for struggling duo Gwangju FC - 6-0 against Chunnam Dragons - and Daejeon Citizen, who were 3-0 winners at Seongnam Chunma. Gwangju had their match wrapped up by the interval, with Park Min and Kim Dong-Sub grabbing two goals each and Kim Eun-Sun also on target in the first half before Joao Paulo sealed the rout in the 64th minute.
Daejeon also assumed control early on, Kevin Oris and Kim Hyeung-Bum putting them two up within 14 minutes before Kim Tae-Yeon completed the scoring six minutes after the break.
Fourth-placed Jeju United lost ground on the leaders as they went down 1-0 at home to Pohang Steelers, Lee Myung-joo netting the game's only goal six minutes from time. Finally, Incheon United claimed only their second win of the campaign - 1-0 against Sangju Sangmu Phoenix thanks to Seol Ki-hyeon's last-gasp goal - but it was not enough to lift them off the foot of the table.
