Race, class, speed and two goals – this top game absolutely lived up to its name …
1: 1 against Dortmund’s U23. Prussia point for the coach’s birthday!
With Münster and the “little Borussia”, the two best regional league teams of the second half of the season (27 points each from 11 games) met. They gave each other nothing, gave each other an exciting and varied duel on an equal footing. Despite crazy weather capers that had everything to offer from rain to snow and hail showers. When the good referee Kevin Domnick (Duisburg) finally started after 93 minutes for the final whistle, the score was 1: 1 on the scoreboard.
Also found Prussia coach Sascha Hildmann, who celebrated his 49th birthday on match day. “I am very satisfied. My boys gave me a point and continued our streak, “he said, happy about the 14th game in a row without a loss.
The league leaders from Dortmund could just as easily live with the outcome of the game. Especially since followers Rot-Weiss Essen at the same time in Rödinghausen (1: 1) also only got one point and thus could not shorten the gap.
The fact is: If the Prussians were defeated in many situations in the 0-2 first leg in November, this time no difference could be made out. Hildmann: “Today you could clearly see what a great development my team has taken. I’m really proud of that. “
Can he be too! It was great, above all, that the Prussians could not be upset even by an early deficit – Finnson scored in the 9th minute to lead the guests.

Already the fifth hit of the winter access in his ninth mission.
Wegkamp grinning: “I didn’t hit the ball right. But that’s what made him dangerous. “
It went on just as lively afterwards. There were opportunities on both sides. Only the hardworking Joel Grodowski (23) failed after a great Wegkamp pass in the last second against the outstandingly reacting BVB keeper Lucas Unbehaun (20th). After the break, it was Dortmund’s Steffen Tigges, who moved from a promising position (53rd). The 22-year-old is already part of the professional squad, having been with the “big Borussians” the night before in the Champions League game against Pep Guardiola and Manchester City (1: 2) in England.
With Münster’s back three around defense chief Simon Scherder (27), Marcel Hoffmeier (21) and Jannik Borgmann (23), he was otherwise in the best hands. Hoffmeier: “Games like this are really fun. BVB is of tremendous quality, but we were able to hold out well. “
The contrast program threatens on Saturday, if he and his colleagues head to the bottom of the line in Ahlen (April 10th / 2pm). With the clear goal of landing the next away three-point and remaining undefeated for the 15th time. Should be difficult enough …
