Wonder strike wins it for Dörtyol

 

By Richard Beale ……

A tremendous 25 yard strike from Dörtyol”s Ahmet Taşer which would have graced any Stadium in the world, yet alone Tatlisu’s little ground gave the visitors all 3 points in this frantic and at times fiery “Derby Match”.

Result : GEÇITKALE 2 DÖRTYOL 3

Saturday December 15, 2018 : BTM LEAGUE Red Group : Tatlisu’s Rauf Raif Denktas Stadi.

This match played on a Saturday morning between two neighbouring villages, was a typical Derby Match, robust, frantic and full of effort. The match was spoilt somewhat by a stiff breeze blowing diagonally across the pitch and together with the high bounce on Tatlisu’s artificial surface, skill was at a premium.

Dörtyol urged on by their noisy supporters dominated the first half, never allowing Geçitkale time to dwell on the ball who were hustled and bustled off the ball. Dörtyol were the better team in the first half, making chances and helping themselves to a two goal advantage at the interval.

Dörtyol took the lead in the minute when Rifat on the left sent in a low cross that was turned in by AYBERK PAYAŞ  0-1. .

Their second was scored in the 37th minute, Serken found Mehmet Gök on the right wing, he crossed where ÖMER GUNER stooped low to head the ball into the net. HALF TIME SCORE  0-2

Geçitkale players were given a rocket by their Coach during the half time break as I could hear him from the touchline.

It was Dörtyol who continued to look likely to score again until the 53rd minute when Geçitkale were given a lifeline to cling on to, a long punt upfield was fastened onto by MUSTAFA AKGÖL who calmly slotted it past the goalkeeper. 1-2

This helped to raise Geçitkale spirits, there was more urgency in their play and in the 71st minute they equalised when good work by Müdjat sent over a long cross to the far post where it was headed in by MUSTAFA AKGÖL. 2-2.

Geçitkale seemed to relax as Dörtyol stunned them in what turned out to be the winning goal in the 76th minute when AHMET TAŞER let fly with a stunning shot from just outside the goal area that screamed into the net giving the Geçitkale goalkeeper Bekir no chance in hell to save it. 2-3

Geçitkale’s cause was not helped when they lost Mustafa İlkman sent off for an off the ball incident after 85 minutes.

Dörtyol held on without too many scares and there were ecstatic scenes at the end between the team and their enthusiastic supporters. FULL TIME SCORE : 2-3.

Action from last weekend’s match between Geçitkale and Dörtyol who are in the green strip.
