Even if it wasn’t enough for SG Barockstadt to score despite the best chances, the rookie camp was still very satisfied with the performance against TSG Balingen. In a goalless tie against the second in the table, SGB was the team that decided the course of play for long periods, especially in the last quarter of the hour, they were closer to victory. So there wasn’t much to complain about on the field, but things were completely different with Place.
Because running in Johannisau is all but good. or; As Balingens coach Martin Brown said with a smile at the press conference: “Let’s put it this way: I’ve seen better places.” This is nicely done in the manner of friendly Swabian guests. The venue in Johanesu is currently hardly suitable for the regional league. SGB coach Jorn Sedat, who has had available space as a nuisance for a long time, sees it that way too. “We all want to see the regional football league here, so we have to create the conditions for that.”
“The stadium made it difficult to play football.”
Because – and the two coaches also agreed on this – you can hardly play technically clean and fast football on this field at the moment. This was clearly shown in the match on Saturday. However, the Secretary-General’s Bulletin could have adapted to this deduction. Because the guests rarely got a quick substitution game on the field. Brown summed up the match: “Of course, the pitch made it difficult to play football. We saw two teams with a great deal of physical substance, working against the ball with great passion and a great deal of preparation.”
As in the first leg, the match developed with few scoring chances. Balingen stood very low and tried to fight back. But the baroque city hardly offers any rooms. And when things got serious, it was usually in front of the visitors’ goal. SGB was the team that set the tone for long periods, had more possession of the ball and, especially in the final stage, had good chances of winning. But both Moritz Reinhard and Dominik Rommel missed the decisive score 1-0.
It should be more consistent and accurate.
Even if winning wasn’t enough, the performance once again demonstrated that the team is on pace despite bumpy preparations and can also dominate a stronger opponent on paper. Now all she has to do is reward herself. “If we are more consistent and accurate in the end, we will succeed,” Goren assures. The next opportunity to do so comes next Saturday when the team travels to Bahlingen. Then the place in Johannisau gets a much needed break. (P) +++
