VFK and Hagen still unbeaten - Armstorf in 3rd place
Even though the season is still long: SV Armstorf, a team promoted to the Bundesliga, put a big exclamation mark on the men's 1st Bundesliga North at the end of the 3rd match day. The team from the Cuxhaven district moved up to third place in the table with its win at VfL Kellinghusen. Meanwhile, VfK Berlin and TSV Hagen 1860 remain unbeaten, each winning 5:0. And: Ahlhorner SV scored important points in the relegation battle against VfL Kellinghusen, who are so battered by injuries.
In a hard-fought match between Kellinghusen and Armstorf, the visitors won 5:1 (4:11, 14:12, 11:4, 11:6, 11:7, 11:3). The VfL had started strongly in their own hall and had fought for the set lead, already leading 10:7 in the second section. But Armstorf could still turn the set into a 14:12 victory and dominated the match in the further course. By the way, to follow all the games, you need to download cricket betting apps for iphone.
In the end, it was the third win of the season for the promoted team, which moved up to third place in the table. However, the SVA does not want to dream of a possible DM qualification yet, but considered the victory as important points for the class preservation.
The Ahlhorner SV also won a day earlier against Kellinghusen. After two defeats at the start, ASV player coach Tim Albrecht had demanded two points from his team in the run-up to the match - and was relieved after the 5:0 (11:9, 11:4, 11:7, 11:8, 11:4). The Störstädter had to get along in the municipality of Großenkneten without the injured main attacker Sascha Heidrich, thus lacked a little of the necessary pressure in the game of the Schleswig-Holstein.
On the Ahlhorn side, attacker Jan Hermes was convincing, leading his team to its first points of the season. The VfL, on the other hand, is still bottom of the table with the two defeats at the weekend, even after four games without a win and with a set ratio of 3:20.
The current top teams in the league also recorded two clear victories. Leader VfK Berlin celebrated a 5:0 victory at TK Hannover (11:7, 11:9, 11:4, 11:7, 11:8), TSV Hagen won the NRW duel against Leichlinger TV (11:8, 11:7, 11:5, 11:3, 11:8). The Rhinelanders had to do without main attacker Christian Weber and could therefore only open the first and last set.
Berlin and Hagen lead the table with 6:0 points each. Next weekend, the two top teams will meet in the capital. Leichlinger TV has two away matches in Kellinghusen and Armstorf, as does SVA, which plays at TV Brettorf the day before. In addition, Ahlhorner SV will meet TK Hannover.
