Skipper scores winner for Dortmund

BERLIN - Borussia Dortmund captain Sebastian Kehl scored the only goal as his team consolidated second place in the Bundesliga with a 1-0 win at his former club Freiburg yesterday.

Kehl's goal came against the run of play in the 58th minute when he swept the ball over Freiburg goalkeeper Oliver Baumann from around 25 metres with his left foot.

"We didn't really have any shots on goal. Dortmund neither - apart from Kehl's shot," Baumann said. "It's annoying, because we were holding our own."

The result prevented Freiburg from escaping the relegation zone with a win. It would have been the club's 100th home win in 500 Bundesliga games. Dortmund restored its 20-point gap behind runaway leader Bayern Munich.

"Whoever wins these sorts of games becomes champion, but that doesn't apply (this season)," Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp joked, referring to Bayern's unprecedented form.

Both Dortmund and Freiburg cancelled each other out in a first half of few real threats, and there weren't many more chances in the second.

"It was a lucky win for us. You have to say that," Dortmund defender Mats Hummels said.

Dortmund's Sokratis was fortunate to escape with just a yellow card at the end of the first when he appeared to take down the surging Philipp Zulechner.

"If he showed a card at all, it should be red as he was the last defender," Zulechner said.

Mainz drew 1-1 at home with Hertha Berlin, a result that cost both sides the chance to climb into the European qualification places.
