ST. PAULI WIN 13-0 AT HETLINGEN IN REPEAT RESULT OF SEVEN YEARS AGO
Sunday, 19. June 2022, 18:45 Uhr
FC St. Pauli cruised to a 13-0 victory in their first pre-season friendly at seventh-tier MTV Hetlingen on Sunday afternoon. Lukas Daschner (2), David Nemeth (2), Serhat Imsak, Etienne Amenyido and Franz Roggow were all on target before the interval, with Jakov Medić, Carlo Boukhalfa (2), Marcel Beifus, Niklas Jessen and Marcel Hartel adding to the tally in the second half.
Following a comfortable 13-0 win almost seven years ago, the Boys in Brown were making their second appearance as the guests of MTV Hetlingen. Head coach Timo Schultz named two new recruits in his starting lineup in Manolis Saliakas (PAS Giannina) and David Nemeth (Mainz 05), while returning loanee Marvin Senger (FC Kaiserslautern) and Under-23 striker Serhat Imsak also featured from the opening whistle. Wearing their new home jerseys, the Schultz XI dominated from the off and after squandering a few opportunities opened the scoring on 11 minutes, the unmarked Lukas Daschner notching the first goal of the new campaign from seven metres. Serhat Imsak and Etienne Amenyido soon extended the lead to 3-0 for a goal-hungry Millerntor outfit, who eventually went in seven goals to the good at half-time. Right-back Saliakas excelled as a provider, while fellow new boy Nemeth also slotted in well at centre-back and bagged himself a brace. Daschner added his second of the afternoon between those two strikes, and Franz Roggow completed the first-half scoring a minute before the break.
Schultz rang the changes at the interval, with new acquisition Carlo Boukhalfa among the substitutes. The St. Pauli boss also introduced Jakov Medić in an unfamiliar role, the centre-back partnering Imsak up front and taking less than five minutes to make it 8-0 with a powerful header. Soon after, Boukhalfa scored his first goal in an FCSP shirt on his debut before Marcel Beifus and Niklas Jessen took the score to 11-0, thus dashing the seventh-tier side's hopes of avoiding a double-figure defeat. Hetlingen had also gone into the game targeting a goal of their own but found no way through the brown-and-white reargruard. In the closing stages, Connor Metcalfe made his debut in a St. Pauli shirt and saw his new teammates add another two goals. After Boukhalfa had notched his second of the game, Marcel Hartel completed the scoring four minutes from time. In a repeat result of seven years ago, it ended 13-0 to the Boys in Brown.
"Obviously we knew beforehand that today would not be a major yardstick,” ," said head coach Timo Schultz afterwards. “We tried to work on a few things during the week and did them very well for long periods. The players all gave a good account of themselves and there were some nice goals as well. Games like these are ideal for giving the new lads an opportunity to get to know their teammates. Commenting on the day as a whole, he said: "There were lots of nice people here and it was very well organised from start to finish. Everything worked out brilliantly, so I can see ourselves coming here again."
"It was good for us all to get 45 minutes in again and I think everyone made a good impression," said a satisfied Marcel Hartel, who replaced Leart Paqarada as skipper for the second half. “It was a lot of fun here in front of the big crowd and it was a nice sign from the coach that I got to wear the captain's armband today."
