Nedeljno popodne na pomoćnom terenu stadiona FK Sarajevo, Plavi Zmajevi obeležili su pobedom i prvim internacionalnim odličijem. Treće mesto CEFL Kup takmičenja došlo je kao prvo priznanje za rad i trud koji je ovaj tim uložio nakon ispadanja u drugu ligu pre dve godine.

Sunday afternoon at the FC Sarajevo Stadium, Blue Dragons marked the victory with the first international trophy. The third place of the CEFL Cup Competition came as the first recognition for the work and effort that this team has put in after leaving the second league two years ago.

Malo lošiji rezultat nego u prvoj utakmici početkom godine 0 – 14, Zmajevima je pružio malo jasniju sliku posledica igranja meča direktno iz autobusa. Početak meča je prošao sa dobrom igrom odbrana na obe strane, nakon čega je napad Zmajeva ubeležio prve poene trčanjem Željka Kostića #28 i dodatnim poenima nakon šuta Uroša Jovića. Za drugi tačdaun Zmajeva Jović je takođe poentirao, ali ovog puta zahvaljujući DE Dušanu Petroviću #97 koji je nakon što je izblokirao pokušaj fild gola domaćina, pokupio loptu i pretrčao preko 70 jardi za tačdaun!

A slightly worse result than in the first game at the beginning of the year 0 – 14, Dragons gave a slightly clearer picture of the consequences of playing the match directly from the bus. The start of the match was marked by the defenses on both sides, after which Dragons attack scored the first points by RB Zeljko Kostic # 28 and additional points after Uros Jovic’s PAT. Jovic also scored PAT for the second time, but now, thanks to DE Dusan Petrovic # 97 who blocked field goal attempt, picked up the ball and ran over 70 yards for the touchdown!

 

Utakmica je protekla u sportskom i prijateljskom odnosu na terenu i tribinama. Zmajevi su poveli nekoliko svojih navijača, koji su za razliku od fudbalskih utakmica, najnormalnije sedeli sa domaćim navijačima i bodrili svoje klubove.

The match took place in a sporty and friendly atmosphere on the field and in fan pit. The Dragons took several of their fans, who, unlike soccer matches, sat down with domestic fans and cheered for opposite football teams.

 

Organizacija utakmice od strane sarajevskih Spartanaca protekla je na zavidnom nivou u ovom sportu, pokazali su da mogu biti odlični domaćini i još bolji protivnici. Možda svoju igru nisu krunisali poenima, ali su u svakom slučaju bili protivnik za poštovanje. Navijači su mogli videti jednu odličnu utakmicu svog kluba, ali i igru tima iz PLS sa kojima Spartanci nemaju baš uvek prilike da igraju pred domaćom publikom.

The organization of the match by the Sarajevo Spartans was very well organized, they have shown that they can be excellent hosts and even better opponents. Perhaps they did not crown their game with points, but in any case they were a respectable opponent. The fans could see the great game of their club, but also a Serbian first league team, which was the first one i Sarajevo. The Spartans do not always have the opportunity to play in front of the home crowd against teams from Serbia.

Na tome svi duguju zahvalnost predsedniku Spartanaca, Eldaru Balti koji je pored organizacije celog događaja, stigao i da previja naše i svoje igrače. Zamolili smo ga da kaže nekoliko reči posle utakmice:

Everyone owes gratitude to the presiden

 

t of the Spartans, Eldar Balta, who besides the organization of the whole event, has managed to treat injured players. We asked him to say a few words after the match:

Niko ne voli gubiti, to se ne mora posebno podcrtavati, ali ako je na ovako lijepom danu, pred sjajnom publikom, u dobroj utakmici protiv jakih rivala, a još jačih prijatelja, pa neka bude. Drago nam je da smo imali prilike uzvratiti gostoprimstvo za naše martovsko gostovanje u Beogradu (mada ovo ne računamo kao prijateljsku utakmicu koju nam Zmajevi duguju!), te se nadamo barem po jednoj utakmici godišnje.

Što se Spartanaca tiče, zatvorili smo jedan lijep krug ove sezone, iz nje izvukli maksimum na i van terena, te sebi, a i drugima otvorili neka nova vrata i mogućnosti. Naravno, imamo i zbog čega da žalimo, a to može samo značiti da smo svjesni svojih grešaka i mogućnosti i da vjerujemo da možemo bolje. Hvala vam što ste bili dijelom ove naše sezone i hvala vam na fudbalu. Vidimo se uskoro.

Nobody likes to lose, it does not have to be underlined separately, but if it’s on such a beautiful day, in front of a great audience, in a good game against strong rivals, and even stronger friends, let it be. We are glad that we had the opportunity to return hospitality to our March tour in Belgrade (although we do not count this as a friendly game that the Dragons still owe us!) and hope for at least one game per year in future against the Blue Dragons.

As far as the Spartans are concerned, we closed a nice round of this season, extracted the maximum from us, on and out of the field and opened up some new doors and opportunities for ourselves and others. Of course, we also have something to regret, and this can only mean that we are aware of our mistakes and opportunities and that we believe we can do better. Thank you for being part of this season and thank you for playing football. I’ll see you soon.

 

Dušan Petrović, Defanzivni linijaš Zmajeva koji je postigao tačdaun posle utakmice dao je kratku izjavu za sajt Blue Dragons:

Dusan Petrovic, Dragons defensive lineman that scored the touchdown, after the match gave a brief statement for the website Blue Dragons:

 

Čvrsta utakmica, ali prijateljska borba. Sa malim brojem igrača smo otputovali u Sarajevo, a igrali direktno iz autobusa. Nažalost, ali tako je moralo. Prijateljski odnos iz prošle utakmice bio je vidljiv i u ovom meču, svaka čast Spartancima na dobroj utakmici, a mi se okrećemo novoj sezoni. Vreme je za plej off u Prvoj Ligi Srbije, nova sezona u kojoj se greške ne praštaju.

Morao sam da se iskupim za presečenu loptu sa prošle utakmice kad nisam uspeo da stignem do end zone, ali evo desilo se da sam se iskupio u sličnoj situaciji sa tačdaunom umesto sejftijem. Srećni smo zbog trofeja, došao je posle velikog truda svih ljudi koji stoje iza ovog tima već godinama. Ovo nam je prvo priznanje za dosadašnji rad, idemo po sledeće…

A solid game, but a friendly fight. With a small number of players we went to Sarajevo and played directly from the bus. Unfortunately, it was the only way. The friendly relationship from the previous game was also visible in this match, good job to the Spartans on a good game, and we are turning to the new season. It’s time to play off in the First League of Serbia, a whole new season, the mistakes are not forgiven.

I had to make up for the interception of the previous game when I did not manage to reach the end zone, but now, it happened that i was in a similar situation with a touchdown instead of a safety. We are happy for the trophy, it came after the great effort of all the people behind this team for years. This is our first reward for the hard work, now it’s go time for another one …

Ovim putem pozdravljamo svoje sportske prijatelje, jedini klub koji u Bosni i Hercegovini igra sa opremom. Nastavite sa radom, daleki put ste prešli sa vrlo dobrim uspehom.

We wish all the best to our sports friends, the only club that plays with equipment in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Continue to work, you have traveled a long way with very good success.
