Emotions just had to come out.
Like young children, Fortuna players attacked after a 3-2 draw with Uaferro Bonus in favor of the fans and celebrated their first mandatory victory against Victoria since November 9, 2013.
The Südstädter can dream up their hopes of reaching the Mittelrheinpokal semi-final of the DFB Cup while Höhenberger focuses entirely on promotion to the third division.
"It was a fantastic game and a great win for us," said Tomasz Kaczmarek with a smile on his face. The coach of Fortune remains the king of the Derby: Before the triumph, he won the Victory twice against the local rivals and current employer.
On the other hand, frustration prevailed in the regional league team. "I only saw one team that played, and we were," said Patrick Glöckner. "The guys made the best of the season, even though we left the field as losers, but it's annoying to score in stoppage time, which can break a team but not us."
25 minutes the guests set the tone and won by Hamdi Dahmani. After that, the hosts reacted, were clearly superior over long distances, and passed Sven Kreyer's arch lamp for well-deserved compensation.
Bitter for Viktoria: The striker also hit his own goal after a corner from Michael Eberwein.
After the break, Victoria long ago looked for the difference and found them only five minutes from the end by Timm Golley. As fans of Fortuna emerged on the bleachers, the hosts made the exclamation point on the lawn.
Uaferro shoots Fortuna Köln in the lucky bowl
But in the time of injury Uaferro shocked the arquirrival with 3: 2. After a corner from Eberwein, the central defender was completely blank and hit Fortuna.
"I just saw the ball in front of me and I thought I had to make the goal, we had a lot to compensate in the last few years," said the winner of the game.
In contrast, Mike Wunderlich was upset: "The best team lost because we made too much individual mistake."
