Cleve After devastating performance, a red card and a lack of space, KFC Uerdingen increased and won the Lower Rhine Cup after overtime in the SGE Bedburg-Hau State Division at the Lower Rhine Cup.
Not only does the trophy have its own laws, as football fans claim, but it also draws its special charm from the galaxy between David and Goliath. In the second round of the Lower Rhine Cup, on the one hand the challenge of the state division SGE Petberg-hau against the regional division KFC Uerdingen, two classes played more, attracted the spectators, on the other hand the weakness of the guests. They enjoyed their Waterloo against Rod-Weiss Essen at 0:11 four days ago, which boosted the hosts ’hopes for a possible surprise. But how did the Grefelt supporters digest this defeat and find out how they reacted?
700 spectators came to the Getec-Arena in Cleve, where the game had to be played for security reasons. The Central Information Point for Sports Activities categorized this meeting as a risky sport due to some Grefelt riot brothers. That, in turn, increased costs, so not much for both clubs.
The 150 or more KFC fans who went to Cleve saw a game at a decent state league level in the first half. Uerdinger was slightly higher, had more possessions, but they were unable to create dangerous actions. When Tom Fladung actually won against two opponents, his decision was completely harmless – the ball went two meters above the goal. Luca Jensen, when signed by F.C. Kaiserlattern a few days ago, had a loud laugh on the stand for the first time when he missed a goal of about ten meters. But it got worse. Five minutes before the break, Erdin was kicked out of the Caracas field. It would inspire outsiders who were completely equal. And the green-white actually lead seconds before the interval whistle. After a punch, the ball came to Falk Kirsten, who stood alone in front of KFC goalkeeper Jonas Brendek and missed the chance.
Yurtinger came out of the cabin with a little more venom and finally sent the sign of life. Substantially improved commitment was rewarded with a good goal from Tom Floating just eight minutes later. After the draw, a large number of KFCs were pushed to the front, and finally a class difference could be seen. Finally there were opportunities, but the penalty area lacked quantity and quality. So it was 1: 1 and the audience was able to enjoy the extension.
Uerdinger increased the pressure so that the hosts could no longer cross the center line. The ball was finally in the box in the 103rd minute. At the crossroads of Leon Augusto, Charles Atcina was there and scored 2-1 on the recovery. What joy for the players on the field and on the KFC bench! What a burden that was! The same picture reappeared when Leon Augusto scored the third goal in the 116th minute. Shortly before the end, Atsina met again for the final score.
