3.Liga, Round 34

Things tigthen up at the top and remain red-hot in the relegation battle.

Preußen Münster got a double from American Matt Taylor to upend leaders Karlsruhe and move closer to promotion. The hosts started out stronger and grabbed the lead, but KSC began to increase the pressure in trying to salvage the match. At the end, Preußen managed to stave off the leaders, due to some timely defending, especially when Bischoff cleared off the line in injury time. with

In the other top clash, Heidenheim kicked Bielefeld’s ass to move closer. However Arminia has no one to blame but themselves, as they got red-carded twice in the first half, effectively ending any chances they had to hold the match.

Osnabrück has been whirling like a flushed toilet, but they managed to stop the slide and get a hard fought win at Halle. This keeps the hopes alive for VfL.

Rostock effectively ended any relegation worries with a win over Dortmund II. The mini-Neons shot themselves in the foot though as Hornschuh got red-carded after only 4 minutes. Still, Hansa didn’t impress, but they eventually did enough to get the win.

Darmstadt may have received a stab in the heart as they managed to lose at home against Saarbrücken. It was clearly going to be a tough match, as FCS was unbeaten in eight, but the 98ers needed a result.

Babelsberg and Stuttgarter Kickers got precious points which have them barely above relegation.
