SCG Muangthong United successfully defended its Thailand Youth League Under-19 title by edging out Nongbualamphu Spots Association 2-1 in a thrilling final at the Udon Thani Teacher’s College grounds yesterday (August 18).

The Nongbuapamphu players went 1-0 up in the 37thminute thanks to Jirayu Saenup who volleyed from a poor free kick defense by Muangthong.

But their joy was short-lived, as Muangthong hit back two minutes later with Vithisak Srichai’s equalizing header in the 39th.

Nongbualamphu goalkeeper Chayanant Khamphala brilliantly brushed off an attack from lone striker Jessadakorn Nisri in the 70th, but in the 78th minute Muangthong went up 2-1 after midfielder Thachapol Chaiyant took the ball in the penalty area and faked through two defenders, as well as the goalkeeper, to score an easy winner.

Muangthong received the Bt1.5 million cash prize while Nongbuapamphu took home the Bt700,000 consolation prize.
