Dortmund & Schalke maintain fine form with Bundesliga wins

Cologne 2 – Borussia Dortmund 3 (Bundesliga, January 17, 2010) (Longer highlights here.) Mats Hummels scored twice for Dortmund in the first half and the visiting team appeared to be cruising until two Cologne defenders struck late in the match. Kevin McKenna headed in a free-kick from Pierre Wome in the 82nd, then set up Youssef Mohamad for the equalizer in the 88th. But Kevin Grosskreutz then produced the winner that strengthened Dortmund’s hold on fifth place.

Schalke 1 – Nurnberg 0 (Bundesliga, January 17, 2010) A ninth goal of the season for a resurgent Kevin Kuranyi helped Schalke to a stumbling win over Nurnberg on Sunday and narrow the gap to undefeated Bayer Leverkusen to a single point again.
