U15 Regional League West: MSV Duisburg v Bayer 04 U15 1-2

The U15s had to work hard to secure a narrow away win in Duisburg. Playing against a well-organised opponent who kept it very tight at the back, the Leverkusen visitors took the lead in added time in the first half through Alexander Höck (35 +1’).

MSV refused to give up, sought to create chances and succeeded in drawing level at 1-1 in the second half (54’). However, It was clear the Bayer 04 U15s were again full of determination as they went in search of three points.

As in the first half the reward came right at the end when Christopher Scott netted the much celebrated strike to make it 2-1 in the final minute of the game. The U15s have bolstered their third place in the Regional League West with 34 points.

The U14s continue their run through the Youth Cup without a problem. The clear victory at Bochum was the 15th win in 16 unbeaten games. Jannis Fissl but the superior visitors on track on three minutes.

Christian Schwierin (19') and Emrehan Gedikli (31') made it 3-0 before the un-cowed Bochum side pulled a goal back on 34 minutes. The Werkself restored the three-goal lead on 40 minutes with a strike from Okan Keskin.
