Victory in Ružomberok through the Eyes of the Scorers

Depetris’s third goal; Knapp and Kubík with two hits so far.

The clear victory in Ružomberok is now just a nice weekend memory. There are new challenges in front of the team AS. Before we start dealing with the approaching game against Michalovce though, we are returning to the weekend’s triumph of AS through the eyes of the goal scorers.

Lubor Knapp – The Holiday Scorer?

Not long ago congratulated Lubor Knapp on his birthday. The player then dedicated himself a goal as a birthday gift. A similar situation repeated on Sunday. “I scored against Podbrezová when I was celebrating my 33rd birthday. Now I did in Ružomberok on my name day,“ the defensive midfield said. “Boris’s action was perfect and so was his center in a difficult position. I got the ball right onto my head. The home defense made it easier for me as one of the defenders missed the ball,” the rarely heading scorer described the goal moment.

“I was thinking after the match if I had scored with the head before. Although I was thinking quite hard, I did not remember any header-goal of mine. It was my premiere one in the age of 33,“ the native of Frýdek-Místek disclosed a surprising fact. He has been successful in the recent time as far as scoring is concerned. He also scored against Šaľa. “I had an interesting series in the past. I played in the reserve team of Baník Ostrava. I scored in nine consecutive matches. I am happy about the goals, but I would not mind when the series breaks if we are able to win the game against Michalovce on Saturday. Three-point gain of the team is much more important than my individual statistics,“ says Lubor Knapp hoping that he will not have to wait for more goals until another holiday.

František Kubík – The Headsman of Ružomberok

František Kubík was the most dangerous man of the match. He was in an excellent chance already after 20 seconds. “It was not an easy position. The home sweeper was crossing me; I eventually missed,“ the player who had no problems to convert his other chances in the game described the situation. “David contributed to the first goal. His hard shot was only batted by the goalkeeper. I was just following the ball and conveniently scored. Before the second one Martin Ševela did an excellent job in the midfield. He carved the ball for Horváth, Béla moved it on to the free area and I hit precisely,“ the double-scorer said happily after the match.

One of the youngest AS players was really enjoying the comeback after overcoming his health problems. “I was looking forward to it a lot. I had paused for two weeks duo to the injury. The fact that I was in the starting lineup was motivating me the more. I did not want to disappoint the coach, my teammates, and, of course, the fans,“ said František Kubík. After the question if this was his first double-pack he answered without hesitation: “I have already scored twice in one game in my career. It was exactly a year ago. I scored twice for Prievidza and our rival then was the ‘B’ team of Ružomberok again.“

David Depetris – The Goal Dedicated to Adrián Guľa

The name of the traditional shooter of AS David Depetris was also recorded in the scorer’s list of the game. “The end of the game was already approaching when I got a good pass, dribbled through the defense and scored by a left-foot cross shot. I am happy about the goal, of course. I am expected to score regularly in Trenčín. I could score already in the first half, but the goalie batted my good shot. Fortunately, Feri (Kubík) was there and finished it conveniently,“ the so far three-goal scorer got back to the important moments of the game in Ružomberok. Immediately after the goal, the Argentinean striker ran towards the bench where he celebrated with coach Koník and especially with the assistant Guľa.

“It was an act of support to the coaches. They had heard a lot of criticism after the recent bad results. I am glad that we succeeded to win away at last. Adrián (Guľa) is dedicating a lot of time and energy to us at individual trainings. He often explains to me when and where should I stand. He is a very important member of the coaching team to me. I promised to dedicate a goal to him in case I would score against Šaľa. I managed it in the following game, but that is not important. Important is that I eventually kept my promise,“ concluded Depetris believing that his goal account will keep rising.
