3.Liga, Round 10

The big winner this week was Heidenheim, who strengthened their hold at the top with a hard fought win over desperate Münster. They have no opened a slight lead at the top, and more importantly, a useful gap from the non-promotion spots. Meanwhile Wehen went down in flames in another village, Elversberg.

The top match of the week was Osnabrück hosting moneyed RedBull. The Leipzigers grabbed the lead in a well played, hard-fought match. However Osnabrück came storming back in a dominant 2nd period to wrest control of the match and get the win.
Erfurt was stopped at Stuttgart II, missing a chance to vault up into promotion.

The most surprising result was perhaps Darmstadt’s annihilation of Rostock. The hosts came out storming, catching the favored visitors off guard. Before long Kucukovic got his ass red-carded, and Rostock’s plan fell apart, and they drew into a defensive shell. Pretty lame shell as Darmstadt attacked furiously and ripped it open. The star was forward Domink Stroh-Engel, who banged in four goals. This is a truly embarassing defeat for Hansa, and I would not want to be on the train (or station) when they arrive back in Rostock. Great result for Darmstadt, which could use this a launch pad into promotion contention. They were relegated last season, but since Offenbach didn’t know how to operate a cash register, got saved. Sometimes, you take advantage of second chances, and so far this season, the 98ers are doing just that.

Burghausen got an unlikely away win at Unterhaching to finally get rid of the goose egg in the win column. With others continuing to suck, perhaps Wacker could climb back into the salvation zone.

Total attendance was 43,544 (avg 4,354)
