K League – Busan I’Park Ease Past Jeju
BUSAN – The Busan I'Park got back to their winning ways Sunday afternoon, with a 3-1 victory over Jeju at the Busan Asiad World Cup Stadium.
After enjoying a two week layoff, the I'Park looked much stronger defensively to start the game, though it took about the first half hour for the offense to start to click. The I'Park clearly enjoyed their rest, dominating the game from start to finish.
Park Jong-woo finally broke the scoreless deadlock in the 33rd minute, firing a left footed shot off a deflection into the right side of the net from just inside the box.
Right before the half, the I'Park doubled their lead, when in the 43rd minute, Lim Sang-hyup had a beautiful run down the left side and fired a shot past Jeju keeper Jeon Tae-Hyun.
Fagner nearly scored a double himself, missing two key chances late in the first half, as the I'Park applied all sorts of pressure, but narrowly missed both chances, holding the score at 2-0 at the half.
Lim Sang-hyub then added his second in the 59th minute with a beautiful right footed blast off a pass from Han Ji-ho.
The only black mark on the game for the I'Park was an 84th minute free kick from Yang Joon-ah, to put Jeju on the scoresheet.
With the win, the I'Park move up to fifth place in the standings.
