Last season 21/22, FV Cölbe, second in the district league A Marburg, had to grant promotion to the district league to VfL Neustadt. In preparation for the current season, the Cölbers showed that they could have survived in the top league. In the test match against SF BG Marburg II, they won 6:3, and in the straightening round of the district cup last Wednesday they won 3:1 against SG Lahnfels.
Just 24 hours later, at the 9th Sparkassen-Versicherung Cup in SV Bauerbach last night, the thread of success was broken. In the match, FV Cölbe lost 5-2 in the prestigious derby against the top division district club FV Wehrda. With two braces each from Christoph Purbs (2nd, 24th) and Ali Fethallah (6th, 28th), the “Island Team” made the preliminary decision at half-time. Alexander Diessel (46th) scored to make it 5-0, before Thomas Langenhorst (50th) and Hadi Jawad (56th) made a cosmetic result for Cölbe.
However, a day after the cup win, Cölbe played mainly second-team players against Wehrda. “With the team that won against Lahnfels, we would have also won against Wehrda,” said Nikla Peter, who after a few years at TSV Michelbach and FSV Schröck has returned to his home club FV Cölbe for the current round and there as a player. . and “just as the coach is working together with Farzad Qayumi, who is currently on vacation.
Salem Milto scores the ‘Golden Goal’
Three district top division teams and one A division team were represented in the SV Bauerbach Sparkassen-Versicherung Cup on Thursday. FV Wehrda qualified for the final with a 5-2 victory against Cölbe and FSV Cappel with a 3-0 victory against SV Großseelheim. Devin Torres (20′) and Salem Milto twice (35′, 35) scored for Cappel.
Cölbe won the penalty shootout for third place 4:2 against Großseelheim. In the final on the day of the tournament, Wehrda played short-numbered from the 15th minute following a red card, four minutes later Salem Milto fired FSV Cappel’s deserved victory, which could have been superior, after a great individual performance.
This Friday, the group league team FSV Schröck will play the association league team SF BG Marburg starting at 6:00 p.m., followed by the game between SV Emsdorf and FSG Homberg at 7:15 p.m. The penalty shootout for third place starts at 8:25 p.m., the final at 8:45 p.m.
He is satisfied with the level of preparation: “If everyone is together, we can face top-class teams.” Consequently, Peter sees his team, which has more additions with Johannes Weber (from FSV Schröck) and Fahed Shdeed (VfB Wetter), also well positioned in the district league A. “If we don’t have too many failures, we can play at the top “.
For the first time in his career, Peter, who has his roots in Cölbe, is also taking on a coaching role. “I had seen quite a few coaches and I would like to take advantage of the good experiences and put the bad ones aside. I think I can teach the guys a lot.”
Those responsible for FV Cölbe also share the confidence in a good lap. “If the team sticks together and always shows a 100% attitude, the team can beat everyone in the district league,” agrees Dominik Löchel, sporting director of FV Cölbe. Another concern of the association is to start the renovation of the natural grass from August, to then face the high objectives for a new “green” care in the second half of the season. Cölbe were allowed to earn a “small” win against a district top division team in a third place penalty shootout against SV Großseelheim. Jawad, Lasse Kaiser, Langenhorst and Tjark Dodenhoff scored from the spot for Cölbe, in Großseelheim only Florian Hofmann and Dominik Staffel.
