The southern clubs continue to dominate (the thought of any one of these runts making getting promoted must be giving 2.Liga treasurers sleepless nights), and Sandhausen, an overgrown village team south of Heidelberg is setting the pace. SVS picked up a win against unpredictable Unterhaching. Other teams getting key points to keep pace were Heidenheim, who struggled before getting a late goal to dispose a collapsiing Oberhausen, and Aalen, who came up with a solid win away to Wehen, who have been very disappointing this season. Bielefeld picked up an important win as their recovery seems to be continuing. After a disastrous start, Arminia looks pretty secure with 9 points above relegation. It wasn’t easy however. Darmstadt pressed hard early, and Bielefeld’s 19 year old GK Stephan Ortega made multiple superb saves. However, Darmstadt’s defense was chaotic as well, and It looked to be a routine walk-in-the-park, as they jumped out to a 3-0 lead after an hour. But Darmstadt came roaring back and Bielefeld was about ready to collapse. With two minutes left, GK Ortega stopped a penalty kick to save the win, but the defense couldn’t clear and eventually the Lilies scored again. The last few minutes had Bielefeld running around like chickens with their heads cut off, but they managed to survive.
