A dream come true, when Albert Gallais catches the snitch infront of thousands of Victory fans in the sell-out Hamster-Park.
Victory wins the Cup!
" Yees! Albert you daredevil" shout Rainer Kurth before he reaches Albert and congratulate him for his glorius catch.
A weep for joy Nicole Matthews lies fast in the arms of her Beaterpartner Dominique Barclay and can´t get herself together.
While Crosby Eaton was so euphoric, that he nearly hit Albert Gallais from his broom.
manager Saizewa and her Coach Jaromiro was the first who storm the field, followed by many Victoryfans.
It was like the time stood still. Everybody lied in their arms and was encircled by the fans, who was lucky enough to get a ticket.
Everybody was shouting Alberts name, knowing that it was his performance who brings the win.
But then cames the moment of our Number 77. Team Captain Rainer "The Commodore" Kurth lead his team the steps up of a podium and then he raise the trophy
high in the air.
" It´s an unbelievable feeling.", told an euphoric Manager Saizewa, hours after the game. "we worked so hard for this day and had fight so hard against a strong fighting Fighting-Hamsterssquad, who made their Teamname all honour and now our players won and create this magic moment. Its awesome to see them now. I remember when they arrive as a bunch of young talents and grew up to famous Honour league stars. They deserve to get this trophy."
The Game itself was a hard fight beetween two strong performing teams.
Victorys play with a rarely seen attacking strategy against a defensive Fighting-Hamsters squad.
The fast and very wild attacks from the Victorys was answered by a wide awake defense which results into a tumultuous clash with small benefits for the Fighting-Hamsters at the field.
Many bad passes by the Victorys and good interceptions open the door for many counter.
The Victorys shows also a slightly more effective Beaterplay. Having a slightly lower same hit % and a handful hits less, the Beaters hit many Chasers, while the Fighting-Hamster beaters can just hit rarely the Chaserline of the Victory, but also it seems that they are concentrate their fire on the opossite Beaterpair.inally the Finally the Fighting-Hamsters shot 20 times more then the Victorys. But here it was Benjamin Da costa who keeps the Team with many saves into the game and make a big diffrence.
So it was a 480:470 lead for the Fighting Hamsters, when Albert spot the snitch. Loiusa Gillam shows great flying skills and really attacks him, but he use all his qualitys and win the Heads to Head untill he reach the snitch.
This players will remembered for all time.
