Olomoucký Kraj - 1 B třída, skupina A
Haná Prostějov 1 Horní Moštěnice 0
Attendance - 35

Matches don't get any bigger, at least at this level.  On Saturday, Horní Moštěnice came to Prostějov needing a win to keep pace with Haná.  A classic three pointer, a loss would see them drop 9 points back of first place, and a win would see them three points back.  A loss would effectively end their season, but stranger things have happened.

The weather felt more like mid-October than May, with a strong wind, grey skies, and rain.  Haná does not normally get the biggest crowds anyway, so I knew not many people would show up.  Only about 35 came to watch, and a few came supporting the visitors.  It really is too bad that so few people want to come out and watch local football.  Haná plays decent football, and they are battling for promotion.  Unfortunately, Haná seems like much of an after thought for football fans in this city.

As predicted, the match was quite played at a fast, and physical pace.  Quality goal scoring chances were few and far between.  Haná had one or two quality chances, and managed to put one away in the 68th minute.  A deflected ball bounced high into the air, and a Haná player blasted it home from about 6 yards off of a full volley.  The visitors tried to get a few things going, but just could not find the goal scoring chance they needed.

With the loss by Lipová, Haná now sits four points clear in first place.  Next weekend they travel to Vrchoslavice, which should prove to be another difficult match.
