April 14, 2013 - OFS Olomouc - IV třída - Drahanovice 4 Tršice 1

April 14, 2013 - OFS Olomouc - IV třída, skupina B (10th tier)
Drahanovice 4 Tršice 1
Attendance - 160
Admission - 20 kc

Drahanovice is a small town of around 1,700 roughly located between Prostějov and Olomouc.  Currently, they sit in first place, and are looking for promotion at the end of the season.  They have not played in the 9th tier of Czech football since the 2008/2009 season.  The visitors, Tršice, have spent the past 7 or 8 years in the 10th tier of football.  The village is best known for having a few locals who protected some Jewish people during WWII.

Getting to Drahanovice from Prostějov was quite easy.  You just have to take a direct train from Prostějov which takes about 35 minutes, even though it is just 15km away.  The pitch is about a 10 minute walk from the train station, and is located opposite a large pond.  The facilities were quite basic, with a few benches on one side of the pitch.  Most of the people who were at the game sat beside the pub, and seemed to be more interested in drinking beer and talking rather than watching football.

The hosts thoroughly deserved the victory, and showed why they were in first place.  The visitors struggled to attack, and were reduced to playing off of the counter.  Unfortunately, chances for them were very hard to come by.
