Why didn’t you play like this earlier? Trier came in with a five match winning streak, and hopes for promotion. They were outplayed by WSV and go home losers. If WSV had been playing all season like they have the last few weeks, we’d be getting promoted. Instead, another drab season, although at least some hope for the future (maybe).
Anyway, Wuppertal started string and pressured Trier into the defensive. A few decent chances, but Trier’s GK Poggenborg was sharp. However, after 28 minutes, it was Knappmann who gave WSV the lead. Zieba flipped the ball into the box, Knappmann shielded the ball from the defenders, whirled around and left the keeper no chance. WSV in the deserved lead and Trier now forced to open up. The first chance for the vistors only came after 33 minutes, a volley shot from 20 meters by Pagenburg (no, not a mispelling of their GK)
The second half saw more WSV pressure, and this time it was the reverse of the opening goal. A nice pass from Knappmann, and Zieba had an open net to poke home. At this point it seemed all over, but to Trier’s credit, they threw everything forward, and eventually brought WSV into distress. With some luck, Eintracht could have got an equalizer, but overall WSV deserved the win.
