Big sigh of relief in Unterhachinger Sportpark: With a 3-0 win against Halleschen FC, SpVgg stopped the months of negative streak on matchday 27 and with their first win since December they also left the last place in the third division.
"That is a huge relief," said head coach Arie van Lent, "but it was only one step."
The situation in the relegation battle of the third division has improved only marginally.
After all, the Hachinger team temporarily moved up to the saving 16th place on two points and also made up a lot in the goal difference.
What didn't go well for weeks worked yesterday: SpVgg were effective on the offensive, were not punished for mistakes on the defensive and were able to enjoy the comfort of an early lead.
“That was really good for us,” said van Lent.
Niclas Anspach scored 1-0 in the 12th minute.
The people from Hachingen started the encounter with remarkable self-confidence and were on the trigger even after the tour.
Luca Marseiler had two other options for the hosts.
Halle only took part in the game after about half an hour and had three top-class chances to score by half-time.
Goals only fell after the break and on the other side.
After a foul on Anspach, Dominik Stroh-Engel converted the penalty kick to 2-0 (76th).
That was only a small relief at first, because the guests were looking for an answer again and, in return, almost missed the connection due to Dehl.
With the 3-0 but then the lid was on.
Substitute Moritz Heinrich pulled cool from twelve meters after a self-confident dance by the HFC defense in the 85th minute and finally released the SpVgg from their winter depression with twelve games without a win and most recently even seven defeats in a row.
“We scored goals and played to zero, that's what we longed for for a long time,” said van Lent, relieved, “the win is perfectly okay today.
We have shown once again that we are good enough for this league.
These three points are really good. "
That was also the opinion of striker Stephan Hain, who surprisingly celebrated his comeback (see text box below): “That was a very important win today that can give us a lot of push.
But I hope this was just the beginning.
We all know that it will be extremely difficult and that we have a long way to go.
But victories are the basis for keeping the class. "
