Bangkok: Hong Kong revived their hopes of reaching the AFC Women's Futsal Championship 2018 quarter-finals after powering to a 7-0 win over Macau on Friday.
After their opening day narrow 2-0 defeat to the hands of Indonesia, Hong Kong's drive for a top two finish in Group A was evident when they came close in the first 30 seconds of the match, when Macau custodian Chao Tsz Wai pulled off a triple save against Chan Wing Sze, Cheung Wai Ki and Wong Shuk Fan.
Hong Kong finally broke the deadlock in the 13th minute with Heidi Yuen Hoi Dik finding the back of the net with a strike from outside the box, courtesy of Shuk Fan's sublime pass after pulling two defenders out of position.
Macau continued to hold on to their defensive strategy, looking to make a break on the counter-attack but Hong Kong were swift with their passes and Yuen earned her brace later with her left footed strike two minutes later, before Ng Wing Kum's long range pass found Yiu Hei Man in the box for a tap in to make it 3-0 going into the break.
