Curious 30. The first matchday in the north-east regional league from the vfl frohnlach’s point of view: the upper franconians played very well on saturday at the second place in the table and in the end got a deserved 1-1 (1-1) draw, because lukas pflaum managed to equalize the score 1:1. But because the previous last team, spvgg erlangen, surprisingly won 3:1 at SV mitterteich, the vfl slipped back to the last place in the table.
In the very fair game there was not a single yellow card. Frohnlach’s head coach roland melzig was clearly aware of one thing: "ATSV erlangen is one of the best teams in the league in terms of play, and they showed that at times."
The ball possession may have been 60:40 percent in favor of the hosts. "We certainly also had the necessary quantum of luck in some situations, which we didn’t always have this season", so melzig continues. The brought the 90 minutes to the point: "if we had always played like today, then we were certainly not last."
Erlangen started on the road to success and pushed back the vfl. In minute 17 then the lead for the promotion aspirants. A cross from the right side was headed in by ferdinand list for 1:0. The game seemed to take its expected course.
Vfl brisk – nothing to lose
But frohnlach had nothing to lose, so they didn’t hide and managed to tie the game at 1:1 before the break against the home team, which was peppered with many former regional league and bavarian league players. On the left wing, lukas werner skilfully set the scene, outjumped an opponent and crossed into the middle of the field. There lurked captain lukas pflaum and held only the fub (40.).
After the break, ATSV tried to get the much-needed three-goal lead. Frohnlach was mainly occupied with defensive work, but acted smartly in the process. Time and again, the people of central franconia gritted their teeth, failed to reach a conclusion or were tripped up.
Ex-professional has to go to hospital
In the final phase then still another unschone scene, the former nurnberger and professional in turkey, ahmet kulabas, collided with frohnlachs keeper erik mozzo. The attacker of the platzherren injured himself and had to be taken to hospital by ambulance.
Immediately before the final whistle, frohnlach had another rough chance when tim rebhan appeared free in front of the ATSV box but then put the ball over the crossbar. "We could even have won, but that would have been too much of a good thing in terms of the course of the game", so melzig, who concluded with a pithy sentence: "we are not dead yet!" Next friday, the good form in the home game against FC lichtenfels should be enough for a three-goal win, so that the relegation can still be achieved. At the moment, at least that is how the vfl frohnlach appears, this seems to be possible.
