스포츠토토 Cheongju FC, a team from the Cheongju Province, is making waves in the K League 2, going unbeaten in nine matches.
Their recent record is 5 wins and 4 draws, and they are ranked 8th.
At this rate, the team could reach the playoffs.
Park is the reporter.
The 25th round of the K League 2 was postponed by one day due to bad weather.
Chungbuk Cheongju FC met the Ansan Greeners and showed a fiery attack from the first half.
An exquisite run through the defence’s offside line created a one-on-one chance, and Hoe-Seom’s shot from outside the penalty area hit the side netting.
Despite their dominance, Chungbuk Cheongju went into the half-time break with the score at 0-0.
Eventually, they were awarded a penalty kick six minutes into the second half, which Peter finished.
But they weren’t satisfied with one goal.
Substitutes Lee Seung-jae and Yang Ji-hoon combined to rattle the net again.

“Me and Seung-jae came on in the second half, and the coach asked us to attack with speed on the counterattack, and Seung-jae pushed us well, so I think we got a good result as we had practised in training.”
Chungbuk Cheongju won the match 2-0, extending their unbeaten streak to nine matches.
The team also moved up to eighth place in the standings, with only six points separating them from the fifth place playoff spot.

“It’s not about one person’s football, it’s about organisation, so the whole team has to work together like cogs.”
Chungbuk Cheongju FC will take a ten-day break before facing fourth-placed Gimpo at home in Cheongju on the 19th.
