taemCompEng football team plays first two matches

Take a bunch of highly qualified, highly motivated and sports-minded people who are real nerds in the area of mechanics und numerical simulations. Put them in team shirts and send them on the soccer field. They're gonna win the game for sure. This is what happened to a group of second semester students from the current CompEng course. Or not quite, that is: The freshly formed CompEng football team played on two tournaments, the RUB Cup on 30 May 2014 and a football match between several teams from the university of Duisburg-Essen and RU-Bochum on 31 May 2014. The first tournament, however, went not that well for the CompEng team, but it was just a warm-up and the beginning of a great team that hadn't played together before. The next day, at the tournament in Essen, the CompEng team represented Bochum on a really high level then. After qualifying from the group stage and almost reaching the finals, they lost the 3rd place just within an ace, being unlucky at the penalties. It was a very good effort that featured a good portion of skills, tactics, team spirit, team sacrifice and trust amongst each other. For the next time they promised to bring the Cup.
