3.Liga, Round 17

Heidenheim is threatening to run away with the title. The ambitious Badeners easily kicked Stuttgart’s ass and have opened up a big lead at the top.

A wild 6 minutes at the end of the match saw Erfurt bang in 3 goals against Darmstadt, and lifts RWE into the coveted 3rd place. The match looked like a scoreless tussle, but the finish means that the eastern club needs to be taken very seriously.

A 3/Liga season high crowd of over 23,000 were on hand for an eastern clash between traditional GDR side Hansa and upstart RedBull/Rasenballsport. Rostock didn’t look at all like the failing side and went to work, perhaps encouraged by their large support. Hansa gets a deserved win and looks to be out of trouble. In this form, they could mount a threat, so they should be watched closely. Obviously for Leipzig, they will continue to challenge, but I’d bet most easterners enjoyed the result.

Pascal Testroet scored a hat-trick and showed that Osnabrück perhaps still has some life. Haching had been flying high, but were well beaten.

Halle outplayed Duisburg at the Zebra’s home, and come away with a solid win.

Elversberg got an important win, thanks to a hat-trick by Italian striker Angelo Vaccaro.

huge road win for Saarbrücken in a relegation clash with Burghausen, while a late goal by American Matt Taylor gave struggling Münster just enough to keep their head above water. Loser Kickers Stuttgart miss a chance to climb out of the well.
