remained in 3rd place and with a game in hand
over their Group A opponents. That game in hand
would be against the team directly above them
in the table – DHL Prague Red.
the German team it was a must not lose game. If
they could win they would guarantee Cup qualification,
a draw would mean they were half-way there needing
a point in their final fixture whereas defeat
would end their Cup hopes. For DHL Prague Red
the equation was similar but this was their last
group game so they had to settle their fate here
looked good for home supporters as Marc Wuttig
and Toran Ergun gave Stadtrandkicker a 2-0 lead
at half-time. We're not sure what happened at
half-time but maybe DHL Prague Red got manager
Mark Keogh's hairdryer treatment as they turned
the game on its head in the second period.
Cusin pulled one back for 2-1 before Mert Cilli
equalized for 2-2. Cilli then scored his fourth
of the tournament to put the Czech's ahead for
the first time. Frenchman Cusin then sealed victory
with his second of the game and round off a superb
4-2 comeback. DHL Prague Red would be playing
Cup football this afternoon.
Stadtrandkicker it was a psychological blow but
they were still in 3rd place and whilst the Cup
was now beyond them, Plate qualification was still
very much in their own hands.
