Kangwon, who came out aggressively at the start of the second half, tied the game three minutes into the second half. A cross from the right was poorly handled by Kim In-gyun, allowing Park Sang-hyuk, who was in the box, to pick up the ball, and as he fell, his attempted shot hit the opposing defense and was sucked in where goalkeeper Lee Chang-geun couldn’t stop it. Park Sang-hyuk’s third goal of the league.
Having equalized, Gangwon’s momentum was unstoppable, and eight minutes into the second half, a cross from the right was met with a perfect header by Kim Dae-won. However, Lee Chang-geun made a super save, and Lee Min-woo’s subsequent shot was also blocked by Lee Chang-geun.

There were six minutes of stoppage time. Enough time to score a goal. Every minute was precious for Gangwon, but Daejeon players cleverly drew fouls to stall for time. In the final attack, Yang Hyun-joon won a free kick in a good position, but Kim Dae-won’s kick was blocked by the defense, and the game ended with a 1-2 Gangwon defeat.
