BEIJING, May 16 (Xinhua) -- Heilongjiang Ice City defeated Liaoning Shenyang Urban 1-0, while Suzhou Dongwu was held to a 1-1 draw by Wuhan Three Towns in the fifth round of the 2021 China League One on Sunday.
Heilongjiang and Liaoning were trapped into a scoreless drought until Nizamdin Ependi of Heilongjiang scored a volley in the 95th minute, scoring his first goal this season in the dying moments.
"I'm still a bit excited. We did a good job and executed the game plan very well," said Heilongjiang head coach Gao Mingqi at the post-game press conference.
Suzhou and Wuhan also had a hard-fought night. The 28-year-old Hu Mingfei of Suzhou broke the deadlock in the 78th minute on a precise pass from Zhang Cheng.
But Brazilian forward Ademilson Braga Bispo Junior seized the chance in the 93rd minute to score an equalizer.
Also on Sunday, Chengdu Rongcheng claimed a 2-1 victory over Nantong Zhiyun. The next round of the Chinese second-tier football league will kick off next Wednesday.
