Published:

HONOLULU (AP) -- Jeon Sang-wook made four saves during a penalty kick tiebreaker and Yu Ji-hun scored the winning penalty to lift Busan I'Park FC (South Korea) to a 1-0 win over Melbourne Heart FC (Australia) in the Hawaiian Islands Invitational at Aloha Stadium on Thursday.

After a scoreless regulation, the teams bypassed overtime and went straight to penalty kicks. Choi Kwang-hee, Yoon Dong-min, Rodrigues Mota Junior and Yu scored for Busan, which converted four of its seven penalty kicks.

Zac Walker, Dusan Bosjnak and Joshua Groenewald scored on their attempts for Melbourne.

Yu's game-winning left-footed shot found the right side of the goal, while Melbourne goalie Vendran Janjetovic dived left.

Busan, which made it to the K-League Cup final last year, will play either Yokohama FC (Japan) or the Colorado Rapids of Major League Soccer in Saturday's final. Melbourne, of Australia's A-League, will play in the third-place match.
