Whatever comes must come, in a ball handling the error of the central defender on the S side, E1 quickly took the opportunity and opened the scoring of player Nguyen Van Dat.

When he could not find an equalizer, S had to receive a second goal from the counterattack and sharp slit of player Ta Duc Canh on the E1 side. The first half ended with a massive advantage for the E1 club. Entering the second half, E1 continued with the initiative to kick slowly, and firmly and give way to the opponent. While working hard to find a goal to shorten the score, Safety received the third goal after facing the goalkeeper and crossing the corner from Tran Ba Minh. With such a big gap, S was unable to turn the tide and only got himself an honorable goal in the final official minutes of the match. 7 minutes of injury time passed, the referee's final whistle sounded, and the E1 players hugged each other to celebrate the victory for the championship that they had to wait 4 years to achieve.
