Olomoucký Kraj - 1 B Třída - Skupina A
Kostelec na Hané 3 Haná Prostějov 2
Game rating: 8/10
Beer: Černa Hora 20kc
Distance travelled: 10km
Kostelec na Hané is a town of around 2,000 people located a few kilometers from Prostějov, so the game last weekend was something of a local derby.
The pitch in Kostelec is located a short 5 minute walk from the train station. Recently, the ground was redeveloped, and the location of the pitch was changed. As such, the grass is in pretty good condition.
I obviously have a little bias towards Prostějov, but I still feel like they deserved to get at least a point from the game. Kostelec scored on a penalty, and their keeper scored from about 90 meters out. He kicked the ball, the wind took it, and it bounced about 5 meters in front of the keeper and into the net to give the hosts a 2-0 lead. Perhaps, the Haná keeper could have dealt with it a little better, but it was just one of those balls. It came down quickly, and took a huge bounce off of the ground. Despite this, Prostějov played hard and pressured Kostelec for the duration of the match, but could not find the tying goal.
