After the test match, is before the test match

April 09, 2017

On Saturday, it was time again, the sports field at the PTSV home yard ran hot when the American football team “Hof Jokers” was back on the pitch for the first time this year. In the form of a preparatory game, a game whose result is irrelevant to the outcome of this year’s season, the jokers welcomed the “Passau Pirates” in Hof. Although the Pirates play in the same league as the Jokers, but in the South Group.

The purpose of the game was to test the skill of the team, new players and new moves. It was also of great interest for the coaches to see how the team, which last year played one more league lower, claimed against an opponent who is almost an old hand in the Bayern league. Full of energy and curiosity for a higher level of American football, the Jokers made ready to compete against their opponent from the south of Bavaria.

They were not alone, the last season as an example were also on Saturday, numerous fans of the Jokers in the stands to support the Jokers loudly and “purple pride” to spread.

The mood among the players was good, both in the domestic and the opposing team zone, it was fair played and exchanged each other. Nevertheless, the Jokers made some mistakes and the final score of 15:48 in favor of the Pirates was unusually low for the Jokers, however, the coaches could now see where there is still room for improvement with regard to the upcoming official league games.

In order to be able to assess this even better, the Jokers will be guests at the Erfurt Indigos on April 22 to play another preparatory or friendly match.
