Festival of goals in the capital
The VfL women progressed past the second round of the DFB-Cup with a 6-0 win over Union Berlin.
The Bundesliga women from VfL Wolfsburg have progressed to the next round of their favourite competition. In their first outing in this season’s DFB-Cup competition, coach Stephan Lerch’s side notched up a formidable 6-0 (5-0) win over ‘Nordost-Regionalliga’ team Union Berlin on Sunday afternoon. The goals for the Lady-Wolves were scored by Ewa Pajor (14'/17'/33'), Tessa Wullaert (12'), Luisa Wensing (19') and Emily van Egmond (71'), in a one-sided clash in front of a crowd of 1,500 at the 'Stadion an der Alten Försterei'. The title holders will play their ‘Round of 16’ game in the competition, in which they were last beaten some four years ago, on the weekend of December 2nd/3rd.
"Wonderful to play here"
Stephan Lerch: "Firstly, I would like to say that it was wonderful to play here. My compliments to the crowd for the fantastic atmosphere they created. That was really something very special. We set out to pile the pressure on right from the outset and get some early goals. We managed to do that and that served our game well. In the second-half we were a little sloppy with our chances, but otherwise I was quite satisfied. We wanted to progress to the next round and we have done so."
