McKay’s Heroics Lead IPark Past Gangwon
GANGWON PROVINCE, South Korea — Australia international Matt McKay's goal off a rebound two minutes into extra time gave the Busan IPark a 2-1 win over Gangwon FC in K League action Saturday afternoon in Gangwon Province.
McKay, a 19th minute substitute, has been returning to form after suffering an injury during international duty in July. His five meter strike in the right corner came as Busan was applying massive pressure to gain the much needed three points to stay a point clear of Pohang for fifth in the table after 28 rounds.
Bang Seung-hwan also netted a 10th minute header to open the scoring for the IPark, while the defense smothered Gangwon's attack. Brazilian Wesley did manage to sneak a 46th minute goal past the IPark, who are now in the midst of a six game unbeaten streak.
The IPark sit fifth in the table on 46 points heading into Wednesday's match versus Gyeongnam.
