The Taiwan Premier Football League’s (TPFL) top two teams, Kaohsiung-based
Taipower and Taipei-based Tatung, cruised to easy wins this weekend with only two points separating them at the top of the table, with the title race likely going down to the final round in October for this inaugural season.
Taipower on Saturday collected three points when they thrashed Fu Jen Catholic University-Hang Yuan team 8-1 at Tainan’s Yonghua Soccer Ground. They have 42 points to hold down first place.
Attacking midfielder Huang Han-sheng scored a hat-trick, with one before the break and then netting two late goals in the second half to earn man-of-the-match honor.
