After we were able to win all of the past games except that against our archenemy and good friend TIGERs Mannheim, we are now playing the game between place 2 (we) and place 3 LUHbots from Hanover.
The outcome of this game is crucial: if we can defend our second place, we’ll be in the starting eleven in the following game for the final. On the other hand, if we lose, we can only watch the game from the stands and LUHbots gets their chance. Accordingly, this game is exciting in every respect!
We were able to score a few goals right after the kick-off, so that by the end of the first half it was already 3-0 to ER-Force. After half-time, however, LUHbots were able to better defend their penalty area and the goal, making it increasingly difficult for us to score goals. Nevertheless, we were able to show our dominance as a long-established team and score another 4 goals, so that the game finally ended in our favor 7:0.
Overall, the game was beautiful to watch. It’s remarkable how much our friends from Hanover have attracted since the last RoboCup 2022. After all, LUHbots is a newly founded team that was only able to take part in a RoboCup! We can’t wait to play against this strong youth team again!
Nevertheless, with this victory and a swollen chest we are on our way to the ultimate game for the strongest team in Europe: ER-Force vs. TIGERs Mannheim at 5:00 p.m.
