On Sunday the mixed team of Trier/Saarbrücken were the guests in Maastricht for the third game of the season of the Second Western German Division. Unfortunately, they only arrived with seven players, resulting in an official victory for the home team.
Anyways, the game started with separated teams for one quarter to practice the lessons from past practices. For the remaining quarters, three players per quarter were lent to play the usual 10 vs. 10.
Focus of this game was obviously the tactic aspects and to learn as much as possible. All 20 players on the field put it all they had and an exciting game started to develop, even though only the home team scored goals at first. After a 1:0 by Pacher in the first quarter, Pacher added up to 2:0, followed by the 3:0 (Frede). With this score the teams went into halftime. In the third quarter, our defense continued to defend any plays by Trier/Saarbrücken and the offense could add up three more goals by Frede, Heller who scored his first goal in the league (Assist Frede) and Jochmans, who shot a ball across half the field in the goal, which was empty due to relatively poor positioning of the goalkeeper. Frede added up to 7:0, however the guest team was able to put one in the net after a fast break (7:1). Heller used a man-up situation for the final score of 8:1.
Thanks to the guests from Trier/Saarbrücken who traveled the long way even without a complete team. Much success in the ongoing league and see you next year on your field. We also would like to thank the ladies from Maastricht for the sideline support!
Next league game of Aachen2 (Aachen/Maastricht) will take place on the 11th of October in Maastricht versus Frankfurt2/Marburg2. The first team will play already on the 4th of October against the Ruhrpott squad. The game will take place in Aachen.
