a Serie C

Manuel Fischller makes half an island dream

With a brace in the very last second, Manuel Fiwickeler shot third division Torres to the top of the table on Monday evening. An entire city or half of the island is on the rise.

Cesena beat Lucchese 3-0 in District B of Serie C at the weekend and took sole lead in the table. But now Torres has hit back.

The surprise team from the 120.000-inhabitant city of Sassari celebrated a spectacular comeback victory in Pesaro. And this is clearly due to Manuel Filehner.

“Fish” is approaching the 100 mark

The 32-year-old striker from Signat first equalized with a header in the 66th minute, then circled the ball into the corner in the 95th minute for the final 2-1 and the around 100 Sardinian fans who had taken part in the long away journey to freak out.

In the north of Sardinia, Torres is seen as the antithesis to the major club Cagliari Calcio, which offers first division football in the capital on the southern tip of the island and even secured the Scudetto in 1970 with the legendary Gigi Riva. Although both rivals rarely meet in a direct duel, there is no good blood between the two fan camps.

Torres striker Filehner now has four goals and a whopping 93 third division hits across the season. The Gazzetta dello Sport voted “Fisch” the best man on the field after the game in Pesaro with a grade of 7,5. If the South Tyrolean striker continues to play so well, Sassari - or rather the entire north of Sardinia - can dream of promotion to Serie B for the first time.
