13.06.2003: WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT: 28. April 2003 – SOCCER: Three real Hattricks in the first half: Dear Sir or Madam, some of the players of the TuS Kienberg e.V., Bavaria, Germany, have done the following on the league-game against TSV Stammham on Sunday, 27th April 2003 in the first half (45 min): The match ended 13-3 for Kienberg, half time 10-0 for Kienberg. The first three goals were scored by Thomas Heiss, the next three goals were scored by his older brother Sepp Heiss and the next three goals were scored by Stefan Egger. The last goal in the first half was scored by Kienberg’s Goalkeeper Gerhard Huber by penalty. In the second half Kienberg scored only three times – once more by Sepp Heiss and then twice by Georg Buchner (who almost did a Hattrick in half time two). The kickers of TSV Buchbach, also Bavaria, have been mentioned for the most games in row without defeat in the Guinnes Book of World Records. You can have the local newspaper article from „Trostberger Tagblatt“ (http://www.trostberger-tagblatt.de) as confirmation. Please be so kind and inform me, if you can include this attempt in the Guinness Book of World Records.
