Our U21s secured three points in the first game of the season in the Oberliga Rheinland-Pfalz / Saar Süd! In the hard-fought home game on the artificial turf in Elversberg, coach Marco Emich's team won 2-1 (1-1) against FC Speyer despite being outnumbered.
"It was the expected tough game against a really good promoted team," said Emich later. Right from the start a tough fight emerged on the artificial turf at the Kaiserlinde - our team took the lead at a favorable, early point in time when Wassim Amadi held onto it half-right from the second row and pushed the ball into the mesh to make it 1-0 ( 5.). "But even the lead didn't give us any security in our game, we made a lot of mistakes in the passing game," said Emich. As a result, our U21s had a little more from the game, but rarely came dangerous and inevitable in front of the Speyrer Tor. In the final phase of the first half it got a little wilder, Speyer turned up another gear, pushed more and did not come to an undeserved equalization, even if Nico Steigleiter fell somewhat unlucky after a corner kick and out of the crowd (30. ). With the 1-1 it went into the break.
It remained wild even after the break - especially when Jannick Geißler was sent off early with a yellow-red in the 76th minute and our team had to act outnumbered in the final quarter of an hour. It goes without saying that the alignment was a little more defensive, Speyer pressed again and wanted the winning goal, but our boys didn't give up despite being outnumbered - and finally rewarded themselves shortly before the end of the game. In the 87th minute, Dominik Kaiser scored the celebrated winner to make it 2-1! “Maybe it was a bit happy because the goal came so close to the end,” said Emich: “But what impressed me was that the team showed a great attitude and gave everything until the end. That's why the victory was deserved at the same time. "
Our second doesn't have much time until the next game - because the league starts right away with an English week. This Wednesday, September 09th, our U21s will be playing in the first away game of this season at TuS Mechtersheim at 18.30 p.m.
