Dörtyol smash leaders Görneç TSK

By Richard Beale …….

Unbeaten League leaders Görneç were brought down to earth when they were thrashed by a determined Dörtyol team.

Result : DORTYOL SK 5 GÖRNEÇ TSK 1

Saturday February 9 : BTM League Red Group : Venue : Dörtyol Stadı

As it was raining in Esentepe on Saturday morning I was a little apprehensive on making the trip to Dörtyol for this important match at the top of the BTM Red Group.

Luckily it was not raining in Dörtyol and it’s always a pleasure to visit their impressive Stadium. Locals and both the teams made me very welcome.

Dörtyol paraded their recent signings IBRAHIM ÇELIK the Ex Tatlısu, and Geçitkale striker and teenager FARUK AKKUŞ a forward signed from Maras.

The first half was easily forgettable littered with fouls as both teams went at it “like hammer and tongs”. Görneç keeper Fatıh was the busier of the two goalkeepers making a couple of important saves.

During the interval the heavens opened making the synthetic surface treacherous.

Against the run of play Görneç took the lead in the 52nd minute when Dörtyol keeper Remzi brought down Levent as he bore down on goal. LEVENT picked himself up and scored with the resulting penalty kick. 0-1

With the surface now waterlogged it was Dörtyol who with their fanatical supporters urging them on took the game by the scruff of the neck and they attacked the League leaders who finally cracked under pressure making unaccustomed errors.

59 mins : Ekrem overlapped on the left and did well to get in a wicked looking cross that the Görneç keeper Fatıh could only push onto the bar, where it dropped obligingly to IBRAHIM ÇELIK to tap in. 1-1

65 mins: Dörtyol’s other new boy FARUK AKKUŞ got into the act disposing a Görneç defender wide on the left he poked the ball past the advancing Fatıh from an acute angle 2-1

Görneç were visibly rocked, Dörtyol were the more determined team they adapted better to the conditions.

It was left to Dörtyol’s impressive Captain and leading goalscorer AYBERK PAYAS to come to the party by scoring a hat trick within the space of 5 minutes with the Görneç defence all over the place.

87 minutes : Again a mistake by the Görneç defence let in Kamıl on the right he crossed to the unmarked AYBERK to score 3-1

90 mins : With the Görneç defence wide open again Faruk made progress down the left before crossing to AYBERK who had the simple task to score. 4-1

92 mins : An identical move again with Faruk squaring the ball across to AYBERK to complete his hat trick. FULL TIME SCORE : 5-1

A thoroughly enjoyable match and I am pleased that I made the effort to watch the game. The home team deserved to win on the day, they wanted it more than Görneç.
