Local players Van Quyet and Tang Tuan each scored a brace to help their clubs score wins in the fourth round of Vietnam's top-flight Super League Sunday, giving football fans some hope for the country's sport amid the complete hegemony foreign strikers seem to have over goal-scoring in the top leagues.

Quyet's double earned a home win for the 2010 champions Hanoi T&T over Kien Giang, and the capital-based club continue to top the league with 10 points.

Quyet is now in a group of three players with four goals from four rounds. The other two are Nigerian striker Timothy Anjembe of Hanoi FC and German striker Felix Luz.

Tuan scored two of Binh Duong's three goals in their home win over Hanoi FC at the Go Dau Stadium.

Anjembe scored the opener for the visitors before another Nigerian striker, Udo Fortune, scored the equalizer.

In other action, defending champs Song Lam Nghe An (SLNA) drew 1-1 away with 2009 champs Da Nang, and hosts Dong Thap beat Khanh Hoa 3-1 at the Cao Lanh Stadium.

In early matches on Saturday, hosts Hoang Anh Gia Lai, the 2003-04 champs, lost 0-2 to Navibank Saigon.

Ninh Binh beat visitors Thanh Hoa 1-0 while Saigon FC crushed Vicem Hai Phong 4-0 at Ho Chi Minh City's Thong Nhat Stadium to finish in second place with eight points.

SLNA are in sixth place with six points in the 14-team Super League while Vicem Hai Phong are at the bottom with just two points.
