Trailing Hunan Xiangtao 0:2 at halftime, the Fujian squad didn’t quit and were resolved to pull out a victory on Saturday. Their grit resulted in a more focused second half offensive attack and eventually into a Fujian Tianxin’s win.
Behind a pair of goals by midfielder Yusheng Liu, Tianxin earned a big come-back victory 3:2 over Xiangtao in a League Two match played Saturday at Hunan xiangtao’s home court. Midfielder Huaqiang Wang broke the ice for Tianxin with a powerful header from corner kick 15 minutes into the second half. The great come-back also gave Xiangtao the first loss on their home court in this season. The match happened to collide with the 21st birthday of Dongshen Wang. The Fujian team cut birthday cake in the locker room for the young player after the game. Fujian Tianxin will continue to be away and challenge Hefei Guiguan next Saturday (May 19th).
