BTM League Group 1 : Saturday May 13 : @ Kumyalı Sahası.

League leaders Tatlısu had to be content to share the points in this hard fought encounter on a hot sunny afternoon.

Kum in Turkish means sand and this is what best describes the playing surface, a dust bowl.

It was a very even first half with not a lot between the teams. The second half followed the pattern of the first half, Tatlısu’s leading goalscorer Ibrahim Çelik put in a good attempt. In the 65th minute Kumyalı came closer with an effort that hit the bar.

In the end Tatlısu were thankful for the alertness of their goalkeeper Hasan, who twice came rushing out of his area, spotting danger to clear the ball.

Kumyalı were reduced to 10 men when Bayram was dismissed in the last minute.

Tatlısu’s lead has now been cut to 1 point as second place Karadeniz 61 won. In 4 matches played Tatlısu have yet to concede a goal this season.

MAN OF THE MATCH : Tatlısu goalkeeper HASAN.
