FC Pinzgau Saalfelden 1 USK Maximarkt Anif 1 (0:1)
Goals: B. Hutter (59.); Perlak (9.)
FC Pinzgau Saalfelden and USK Anif separated with a 1:1 draw on Saturday afternoon at the 1508 SaalfeldenArena.
The home side got off to the better start in bright sunshine and found the first major chance after just under a minute through Lukas Moosmann. Shortly thereafter, Philipp Zehentmayr tried his luck with a long-range shot, but the goalkeeper was on guard and could distinguish himself with a spectacular flying save. USK Anif took advantage of a misplaced pass in the Pinzgau back line and took the lead through Michael Parlak (9th). The guests now had the momentum on their side and set the pace. Tandari & Co. found it difficult to find any game flow and lacked the final consistency in the duel. Only standards were dangerous.
After just under half an hour, the captain flicked the ball past the far corner by a few centimeters, before a free kick from fellow striker Semir Gvozdjar also just missed the corner of the cross.
Markus Fürstaller’s intermission speech had an effect. A few minutes after the restart, Benjamin Hutter had his first good opportunity, but his finish was decisively blocked at the last moment. After Kilian Schröcker made a daring save to prevent another goal, Hutter managed to equalize 1-1 with a dry finish practically in the opposite direction. After that, things got hectic. After a collision and a hard impact on the ground, the goalkeeper of Anif remained injured and had to be replaced shortly afterwards. In the final phase, the home side threw everything forward once again and had a great chance through Gvozdjar, but the winning goal was not to be scored on this day. After seven wins in a row and the draw against USK Anif, an impressive series came to an end.
“Very unfortunate. We didn’t get into the game well over the entire period and had a very hard time. Anif has done his thing very well, defended high and were really poisonous. We thought too complicated in many situations and the ease was missing,” Markus Fürstaller draws a first conclusion immediately after the game.
