3.Liga, Round 29

Things remain tight at teh top, and the relegation zone clubs announced they’re not dead yet with points. The 3.Liga is the most exciting league in Germany at the moment.

Karlsruhe put in a decent display winning at Burghausen. The hosts gave a good effort, but in the end KSC’s superiority mertied the points.
A sold out Schüco-Arena witnessed the Westfalen derby between Bielefeld and Münster. It was a tense, entertaining affair, although lacking some of the technical kill one might expect for two good squads.

Osnabrück missed an opportunity to grab needed points, as they were unable to fight off pesky Chemnitz at home. The Purples keep a precarious hold on 2nd, but Bielefeld and Münster have a game in hand and are breathing down their neck.

Heidenheim perhaps lost some ground, but have to be somewhat happy, as they were staring a defeat at home to Wehen. But luckily the draw kings decided they wanted to continue their favorite result, so FCH managed to come back and grab a point.

Babelsberg got a huge away win at Aachen, and Darmstadt ignored the small crowd and recent squad infighting to do the same at Stuttgart B to get critical points. Not to be outdone, Dortmund B stunned Unterhaching to also get points. (This crowd was so small, it’s perhaps less than the average length of a line at a beer kiosk in the Signal-Iduna). Both Darmstadt and mini-Dortmund have makeup home matches on Tuesday, looking to pull even closer.

Erfurt got a critical win at Offenbach, to keep their head just above the zone. And in doing so they’ve dragged Offenbach done into the relegation mire. Certainly this is turning into a nightmare campaign for the Kickers. Halle was clearly the better side in a GDR derby with Rostock. Hansa needs to be careful not to get dragged into the relegation fight.

Total attendance this weekend was 77,488 (avg 7,749), with two sellouts, Bielefeld and Halle.
