Kim Do-hoon Becomes Joint Top Second Scorer with His 104th Goal

“Bomber” Kim Do-hoon (35, Seongnam Ilhwa, picture) scored his 104th goal, jumping to a tie for second place in the K-League’s top scorer rankings.

On April 10 at the Second Seongnam Sports Complex, the match between Seongnam Ilhwa and Ulsan Hyundai was held for the Samsung Hauzen Cup in the 2005 professional K-League.

Around the 28-minute mark of the first half, Kim Do-hoon got a pass from Nam Ki-il and, with a right-footed shot, slammed the ball into the goal net. With this goal, Kim recorded his 104th goal after 232 matches since he turned professional in 1995. He is tied for second place with Shasha (formerly of Seongnam) in the K-League top scorers ranking, following Kim Hyun-seok (formerly of Ulsan, 110 goals) in first place.

Kim Do-hoon is highly expected to be number one in the top scorers ranking this season, considering that he came in second in the rankings after spending only eight seasons in the K-League, as he was playing in the J-League from the second half of 1997 to 1999.

Seongnam ended the match with a 1-1 draw after Kim Jin-yong (Ulsan)’s tying goal at the 19-minute point of the second half. Seongnam’s record is two wins, four draws and one defeat, while Ulsan kept its clean record of two wins and four draws.

In Daegu, thanks to the nice play of “Samba Combi” Sandro and Thiago, Daegu FC defeated Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors, 1-0, taking the top ranking for two straight weeks for the first time since its foundation in 2003. Daegu scored the goal around the 34-minute mark of the first half, as Sandro made a pass from the right side of the penalty area and Thiago kicked the ball with a right-footed shot right in front of the goal area. Daegu FC secured its position in first place with four wins, one draw and two defeats, recording 13 winning points.

“Korean Real Madrid,” Suwon Samsung, won a 2-0 victory in its home match with Gwangju Sangmoo with two consecutive goals from Kim Dong-hyun and Ahn Hyo-yeon in the second half, continuing its clean record of 12 wins and six draws in 18 games, including the A3 Tournament and the Asian Champions League, since its Pohang match on November 7 of last year.
