Yangon United battled Shan United to a 1-1 draw at Padonmar Stadium in Yangon yesterday evening in one of the Week 8 matches of the U-21 MPT Myanmar National League.
Yangon United U-21 team lined up with Thura Kyaw at the goalie position along with Nay Oo Lwin, Hlwan Moe Oo, Wai Yan Htike, Naing Ko Ko, Nyein Chan Soe, Kyaw Swar Win, Aung Bala, Naing Min Thu, Tay Zaw Lin and Saw Aung Myo Tun.
Shan United lined up with Aung Myint Myat in goal along with Myat Min Thu, Thura San, Htun Htein Lin, Htet Phyo Wai, Thurein Tun, Thaw Zin Oo, Thet Paing Htwe, Zwe Thet Paing, Thiha Tun Kyaw and Hein Phyo Win.
Players from both teams made sweaty efforts to score the icebreaker, but the first half ended with a score of 0- 0.
In the second half, both teams changed tactics in an effort to score the opening goal.
Although Shan was very good in controlling the football, with only one mistake in their defence, Yangon scored first at 55 minutes with a goal by Naing Min Thu after Hlwan Moe Oo kick bounced back from the keeper.
Ten minutes later, Shan equalised when Thurein Tun scored with a header at 65 minutes.
Shan’s youth players gained more chances to score in the last minute, but their efforts were negated by the opponent’s blockings.
Yangon United (U-21) has attained 14 points from 8 plays, 3 wins and 5 draws.
Shan United (U-21) gains 16 points from 8 plays, 5 wins, 2 losses and 1 draw.—Kyaw Zin Lin
