3.Liga, Round 36: Haching jumps, Leipzig almost in

Darmstadt had a tough win, but it is probably for naught. The 98ers were struggling in a tie match against Erfurt, and then were down a man after 50 minutes. But credit the 98ers for an attitude adjustment, because they willed their way to a win, and you-know-who (Storh-Engel) grabbed a winner near the end. This kept the pressure on Leipzig, but the Redballsportlers were up to the task, winning at Rostock and almost assuring their promotion.

Unterhaching was a huge winner in the relegation battle. They left it late, but scored three times down the stretch against a totally lame Osnabrück. This win allows them to vault out of the relegation zone.

Elversberg had a rough time, but desperately held onto a point at Regensburg. This is huge, as they had lost 10 straight on the road. Although they are in the relegation zone, they’re only a win away, so they can still hope.

Saarbrücken and Burghausen showed why they were crap all season and played a lame draw, which means that both clubs are officially relegated.

Kiel had the game under control at Chemnitz, but then lost their thread and the game as well. This could come back to haunt them, as they’re not out of the woods yet.

Wehen took advantage of others stubbing their toes and had an impressive 2nd half to control the important 4th place (DFB-Cup qualifier). The villagers were getting outplayed, but Dortmund-B was unorganized after the half, and Wehen was rampant, one of their more impressive performances all season.

Heidenheim was stunned at home by Stuttgart-II, who have essnetially avoided any relegation chances. FCH intended to celebrate the championship, but they dicked around and were punished. Now theoretically they could actually get caught by Leipzig…
