3.Liga, Round 22

The 3.Liga now goes into winter-break until the end-of January.

A masterly performance by leaders Osnabrück in Offenbach, ripping the Kickers to shreds. VfL came out and dominated, and the home side was fortunate the match wasn’t over by half time. The only positive for the Kickers is that lousy weather meant that few fans showed up, as they would have been outraged.

Karlsruhe won their 8th in a row in a local mini-derby; I’m sure they’d rather not be playing the B-team, but their impovement in form has been rewarded by some decent fan support as they look for a quick return to the 2.Liga.

A hat-trick by Marco Königs was enough for Preußen Münster to keep pace at the top and send Darmstadt into despair. The match was lousy in the 1st half, but it looked like the guests might escape into halftime even, but Königs escaped from his marker and blasted home. Darmstadt had a decent chance to equalize just before half, but of course blew it. In the 2nd period Preussen raised their game and it was all over.

The only other match of consequence was Erfurt’s relegation thriller with Halle, decided in injury time, a nice Xmas present for RWE.
