In Oldenburg there has hardly been any other topic for days than the upcoming promotion game of the local VfB to the third division. The second leg against BFC Dynamo was sold out within a day. And since the first leg between the representatives of the Regionalliga Nordost from Berlin and the one from the north ended 2-0 for Oldenburg, the promotion celebrations were already being planned diligently in the run-up to the second leg. And things will really get going on Whit Monday in Oldenburg: the team is in the town hall in the afternoon, so the atmosphere shouldn’t be sober then.

To put it bluntly, that means: Oldenburg is back in professional football after 25 years. BFC Dynamo, on the other hand, has to wait: The Berliners even won 2-1 (1-1) after a late goal in Oldenburg on Saturday, but that wasn’t enough for promotion after the 0-2 in the first leg.

But it wasn’t a hit yet, the Berliners didn’t give up that easily. Shortly before half-time it was 1-1, Niklas Beck scored for the Berliners when he didn’t give Boevink a chance from close range. In the second half, the BFC was about to initiate the turnaround. In the 56th minute, Christian Beck first hit the post and after a corner the crossbar. But it’s not close. In the Berlin block, frustration reigned after the missed chances, it was ignited. The police marched on Laufbahn. The game rested for a short time, but was not interrupted. In injury time, substitute Andor Bolyki even scored to make it 2-1 for the Berliners – but that wasn’t enough after the 0-2 in the first leg. After eight minutes of stoppage time, the disappointment among the Berlin players was huge.
