Steyr – Friday, July 22, 2022, 8:08 p.m
SK Verwarts Steyr and Rapid Wien II have to be satisfied with a point division at the start of the new Admiral 2nd League season. The game ends 2:2.
Steyr suffers a major setback early in the game, losing Silvio Apollonio after just a few minutes with a serious injury.
The Upper Austrians can quickly shake off the shock. Gerhard Dombaxi leaves his opponent behind and sinks the ball after a counterattack in the far corner – 1:0 (20th).
Rapid finds it difficult to get into the game, but is favored after half an hour by a goalkeeper error. Steyr keeper Florian Eres fails when playing out, serves the Hütteldorfers the ball on a silver platter. Nicholas Wunsch puts it down again to Nicolas Binder, who netted to make it 1-1 (29′).
Two more goals before the break
The green-whites even turn the game around before the break. Leopold Querfeld pulls from a long distance, his deflected shot hits the near corner (42′).
But Steyr has an answer ready before the break. Alem Pasic takes a cross from Tolga Günes at full risk and sinks his volley into the Rapid box, which is well worth seeing (45′).
Really good scoring chances are scarce in the second round. Nevertheless, Rapid II sniffs the victory again in the final phase, but Marko Dijakovic’s header (79th) only touches the outside bar.
In the end it remains 2:2 at the start of the season.
