In a six-point game at FC Pesch, 1. FC Düren underpinned its supremacy. Attacking them is what FC Hennef 05 is trying to do, and they also provided plenty of arguments for this on Sunday. SV Bergisch Gladbach 09 is far from the top of the table, which this time had a lot to do with their behavior in front of the opposing goal.
Underpin their great ambitions: The players of 1. FC Düren (here an archive photo) want to join the regional league and are currently performing as well.
The top game between FC Pesch and 1. FC Düren went to the favored guests of FCD. At 2: 1, Pesch started nervously, while Düren immediately acted aggressively and powerfully. Bors scored a deserved opening goal in the 17th minute. But the lead was shaken shortly afterwards, because Yildiz and Papazoglu had a top-class double chance, but FCD goalkeeper Bade brilliantly parried. On the other side, Bors staged his team-mate Brasnic in stoppage time in the first half, and it went 2-0 into the dressing room. After the restart, Düren was safe in the back, Yildiz’s connecting goal in stoppage time did not cause any excitement, as it was over immediately afterwards.
At the same time, two teams from different worlds met with SV 1910 Breinig Breinigerberg and FC Hennef 05. Hennef wants to annoy champion favorite Düren as long as possible, Breinig was the only team in the Middle Rhine League with no points. And that lasted even after 90 minutes. With Kanli’s opening goal in the 35th minute, the afternoon took the expected course, but especially in the second half, Hennef did a lot more than just work according to the rules. Afterwards, guest coach Sascha Glatzel spoke of an “almost perfect game, especially in the second part of the game”, in which Dahas (52nd), two more Kanli (57th and 78th) and Kouekem (85th) improved the goal difference considerably.
The new third in the table, BC Viktoria Glesch-Paffendorf, left nothing to burn and sent the second representation of Fortuna Cologne home 4-1. After five minutes it was 2-0 with goals from Grazina and Krasniqi. Vinci let the 3-0 follow after half an hour. With this cushion in the back, Glesch-Paffendorf was able to slow down and save energy. Except for the goal conceded by Westerhoff (63rd), this plan also worked. At the front Grazina contributed the final score of 4: 1 in the 79th minute.
Borussia Freialdenhoven put on similar early starter qualities in Arnoldsweiler, after 20 minutes the 3-0 final score was already fixed. With the same result, Blau-Weiß Friesdorf won the cellar duel with SV Eilendorf, while FC Hürth gained some air in the south wing of the table thanks to the 4: 2 at Wesseling-Urfeld.
Red after the goal
As far as Regionalliga relegated Bergisch Gladbach 09 is not yet. Although the team of coach Helge Hohl led against VfL Vichttal 1-0 through Habl from the 21st minute, they failed to make the 2-0 necessary due to the chances. And so VfL got back into the action, Turkmen enforced in the 43rd minute to equalize. Similar dramaturgy in the second 45 minutes: Bergisch Gladbach had many chances, scored a goal by Kizil, but since there was no more jumped out, Alawie made sure to split the points with his solo run nine minutes before the end, which tasted a little bitter for the home team , as McCormick saw red after equalizing.
On the other places, the SpVgg Frechen 20 can orientate themselves upwards after the 2-1 in Siegburg, Alfter and Deutz 05 diverged goalless, which means the guests remain dangerously close to the relegation places.
