After a long and great trip to Stendal the day before, my dad and I wanted to see another ground in Halle. This time: the last stadium in Halle, that we did not visit before. Now there are only some grounds without any stands on the list. The Galgenberg-Stadion is an unspectacular one with a six-row stand on one long side, shaded by some trees. Behind that stand there is another football pitch and the mountain which gave the stadium its name: Galgenberg - hang men’s mountain. Interestingly, the team of the Police Club plays in the shadow of that mountain.
We had an expensive but excellent meal in the club’s restaurant before the kick-off and four minutes after the match started in front of a few emotionless fans, SG Halle 05 scored the first goal.
A quarter of an hour later, Halle set the scoreboard to 0:2 and another few minutes later, they even scored a third time. That SG 05 is just ranked 11th, while Polizei SV is ranked 9th, was not visible. The visiting team was superior in every department but in discipline: I do not know, what that shithead with the number 8 thought, but the right thing after that useless arguing with the referee was that sent-off.
In the second half, the mediocre level of the match went down to weak entertainment. There wasn’t any goal scored anymore.
