The match promises to be challenging, and not just because Staaken is also undefeated so far this season. The field in Staaken is artificial turf (and it looks like there are metal fences along the field?) - this will change the dynamic and the players will have to adjust quickly.
It's a big away game, and a chance for the Prussians to show that they can compete and (hopefully) win even in a difficult environment against a tough opponent.
It's still early, but this game could help set the tone and build momentum after two good wins and last week's tie.
Can't wait to see what our players can do.

After Tennis was able to open the scoring off a PK, Staaken pulled even before the half, then scored two in the second half. The Prussians tried to counter, but the only goal came just before the end of the game - not enough to get the tie.

While a win would have been great, it feels like this loss was a wake-up call. They had been playing well, and didn't give up in this match either - but if it wasn't clear before, now they know that it won't be easy to win in the Oberliga.
That being said, this group has the talent and grit to win in this league - but they will have to work hard and play together as a team to beat these tough and competitive challengers. Let's hope the bitter taste of defeat helps them to double down on their efforts.
They already seemed more motivated after Staaken took the lead. Let's see if they can take that energy into Friday night and fight for a comeback win. A full 90 minutes of Mommsenfußball - tough, fast, skilled, and seize the win.
