This year Türkgücü Erding was back in the usual environment for Christmas: in the Semptsporthalle.
And there was also a curious “Christmas story”.
Erding – Because an available emergency doctor in the immediate vicinity at Christmas is a rarity, one had to be flown in by helicopter: In the group game between Türkgücü and SV Istiklal Munich (0:1), a guest player dislocated his shoulder.
An ambulance came – and a helicopter.
The shoulder was put back in place and the paramedic flew back again.
The player was fine again, he stayed in the hall after his treatment and followed his team from the stands - until the final.
In the final, Istiklal Munich lost in an exciting game to FC Fürstenried after a penalty shoot-out.
A bit like an Argentina game: First, the Fürstenrieders gave up a 2-0 lead, but then they kept their nerves at the seven-meter point.
Türkgücü himself convinced in the group phase with a technically strong team that always kept calm.
Player-coach Benji Tas, who scored a hat-trick in the first game against FC Mintraching (5:2), Mert Gül, who repeatedly impressed with his ball control, and Alim Calis, the new signing from FC Moosinning, were particularly noticeable.
In the semifinals, however, it was over against the eventual tournament winner Fürstenried (0:2).
Tournament manager Selcuk Gürel summed it up: "Fürstenried played very clean football and didn't make any mistakes.
That was a well-deserved tournament win.” With a broad grin, he added to his own team's performance: “It was nice to see that our coach Benji hasn't forgotten how to play football.” (ma)
