Boin High School in Seoul and Yeongdeungpo High School in Seoul will compete for presidential gold medal supremacy in 2023.
Boin High School won 4-3 in a penalty 토토사이트 shootout after drawing 2-2 with Bupyeong High School in Incheon in the semifinals of the 56th Presidential Gold Cup National High School Football Tournament held at Jecheon Stadium on the 30th.
Boin High School, which reached its eighth final in its career, will compete for the gold medal at the same venue as Yeongdeungpo High School, which beat Seoul Sangmun 4-2, at 10 a.m. on August 2. If Boin High School lifts the gold medal, it will be its fourth championship since 2021, and Yeongdeungpo Technical High School will be its first gold medal challenge.
Shim Deok-bo, head coach of Boin High School, said, “Didn’t you say that a team with a strong defense will win?” “That’s how Boin High School is this year,” he said, not hiding his desire to win. Kim Jae-woong, head coach of Yeongdeungpo Technical High School, also said, “We will aim for the championship with hot soccer.” “I want to be recognized that Yeongdeungpo Technical High School is the strongest team this year,” he said.
In the semifinals, Geumbae’s regular customers, Boin High School and Bupyeong High School, faced off for two consecutive days. Boin High School lost 0-1 to Bupyeong High School in the quarterfinals of the Geumbae U17 Youth Cup, where first and second graders compete the previous day.
In the main competition, where the third grade plays, Boin High School succeeded in avenging Bupyeong High School. Boin High School’s third-year goalkeeper Kim Hyun-woo scored the first goal in the third minute of the first half, and second-year striker Lee Min-hyuk scored an additional goal in the 41st minute of the first half with a cheerful left-footed shot from the front of the penalty area.
Bupyeong High School’s endurance was also considerable. Bupyeong High School saved a set-piece chance just one minute after giving up its second goal to Boin High School. In a free-kick situation, third-year midfielder Nam Hyun-woo scored a dramatic comeback goal. Bupyeong High School, which gained momentum, returned the game to square one in the 37th minute of the second half with a free kick hit by captain third-year midfielder Kang Do-wook with his left foot near the right side of the penalty area.
Both Boin High School and Bupyeong High School did not score additional goals, and the victory or defeat was decided by a penalty shootout. In Boin High School, there was a third-year goalkeeper called a master of penalty shootouts. He, the captain of Boyoung High School, made two good defense shows in the round of 16 penalty shoot-out against Gwangmun High School in Gyeonggi Province on the 6th, and made the same scene that day. Kwon Neung accurately predicted and blocked the direction of Bupyeong High School’s No. 2 kicker and No. 3 kicker.
Boin High School, whose goal was stable, won 4-3 in the penalty shootout. Kwon said, “I have a strange feeling in penalty kicks or penalty kicks,” and vowed, “I have a feeling today, but if there is a penalty shoot-out situation in the final, I will block three, not two, and win.”
In another semifinals, Yeongdeungpo Technical High School’s firepower stood out. Kim Tae-won, a third-year goaltender, was the main player who led the attack of Yeongdeungpo Technical High School. Showing off his amazing scoring ability in this tournament, he scored a sensational header in the first minute of the second half with a 2-1 lead, and in the 28th minute of the second half, he was responsible for the team’s fourth wedge goal with his left foot. Kim Tae-won scored nine goals in this tournament alone to reserve the top scorer. Sangmun High School’s third-year striker Kim Ji-hoon also did his part with multiple goals, but failed to overcome the power gap.
