As part of the November friendly matches, we went to the city of Prshibram, where we played against their “B” team. Until recently, the team was headed by Tomas Zapotochny, but a week before the game, Daniel Hunya took his position. You can remember both of them from league games, and the first one even from participation in the national team. The match took place on an artificial turf next to the main stadium of Na Litavce. Autumn has prepared for us a cold morning, which was especially cold in Prshibram. The match started at exactly 11:00, and even when looking at the line-ups, it was clear that today’s match would have something to offer. The team of the Prshibram reserve also included names who already have experience of participating in Czech tournaments of the highest echelon. The match started at a brisk pace, as the home team wanted to show their might, as well as show off to the coaches of the A team, who also came to watch the game.
Most of the attacks from both sides took place mainly along the lines where both teams had very fast flanks. The first very balanced 20 minutes led to a goal in the 23rd minute – we missed the ball, and the score became 1:0. However, this did not stop us, and in the 32nd minute our striker Hanch realized the return goal – the score became 1:1. By the end of the half, we witnessed several outstanding attacks, which, however, failed to change the score. In the second half, the teams, of course, were not going to relax, and the defense of both teams had something to do. MSM team players had more possession of the ball, who with all their tenacity wanted to win this match at any cost. Several dangerous shots were made at the goal of the hosts, but none of them could get past the superbly agile goalkeeper of the hosts. And only in the 85th minute, the pressure building around led to a scoring moment. At first the shot was deflected, but in the end Bessonov was able to send the reflected ball over the goal line. A few minutes later, the match ended, and we took a trophy that was valuable to us – a victory over Prshibram 1:2!
