3.Liga, Round 36

Can’t get more exciting than this, battles at both ends of the table.

Karslruher SC stayed on top thanks to a direct free kcik in the penultimate minute by their super talent Hakan Calhanoglu at Darmstadt. A big crowd had shown up at the Böllenfalltor to cheer on the 98ers, who fought hard against the leaders. But KSC was not content to split points, and launched a late assault against teh desperate Darmstadters. The win gives KSC the league lead and puts them within 1 point of promotion. For Darmstadt, things remain red hot in relegation.

Osnabrück was a huge winner as they hold 3rd with Münster getting stunned at home and Heidenheim getting held as well. It just shows how desperate teams can sometime bring forth massive efforts that you didn’t think they had in them. Neverthless, Osnabrück had a rough time against defensively solid Burghausen, controlling the ball but not able to break down the visitors. They did get a penalty and that was all that was eventually needed, but their were some nervous moments.

Preußen Münster was absolutely stunned at home bu Stuttgarter Kickers. The Preußen hadn’t lost at home in 18 matches, and dominated from the start. However the Kickers were defensively engaged and occasionally launched counters. The Eagles were getting increasing desperate as the match went on, and then were laid out by a counterpunch.

Bielefeld is on top pending Karlsruhe’s match. The Arminen had a tough match at Stuttgart-B, but were efficient, whereas their host wasted chances.

Heidenheim has had a rogh time with Dortmund-II, having lost in the first leg. And this one looked like another defeat, as BVB-II was playing FCH equal and grabbed a lead. The home side was able to salvage a point, but this a critical dropped opportunity. For the Dortmund Bubis, it’s a great away point, but they remain in the relegation zone, as rivals are grabbing points as well.

Massive win for Babelsberg, as they dumped Unterhaching. Overall a deserved win, both sides playing for the win. Oddly enough, both teams missed penalties, but the Potsdamers did a littel more to get critical points.

Rostock might have just got enough points to stay up, but looked to have the win wrapped up against Offenbach. But teh Kickers desperately need points as well, and they stormed back to grab a point to keep their head just above water.

Erfurt won a derby at Chemnitz, and pending disaster, they look to be safe.

Wehen has been playing quite well lately, I believe 5 wins in their last 6, a turn in form for the draw kings. They outplayed a Saarbrücken squad that has mostly disapointed this season and been a non-factor.

Halle upended Aachen to officially send Alemannia down. Not that it wasn’t happening anyway, as the Aacheners had decided to declare insolvency and accept voluntary relegation anyway. However you have to give them some credit, as they have largely played hard in every match, whereas they could have just had all their matches annulled and gone on vacation.
