SG Flensburg-Handewitt has taken over the heavy foreign weight in Leipzig and retained the title in the Bundesliga. The North Germans made a clear stand at SC DHfK Leipzig, the last ten home wins in series, with 30:24 (17:12).
This leaves the SG in the duel against the Rhine-Neckar lions, who won in parallel at HC Erlangen with 37:26 (19:13), a counter behind the title defender. However, the lions have yet to enter Flensburg on the 28th of May.
In the decisive phase of the championship, Flensburger must fear for the backroom players Holger Glandorf, who could not continue to play with suspicion of a thumb fracture in Leipzig.
Christian Prokop’s DHfK team could only offer the table second in the first quarter of Paroli. Flensburg seemed to have taken it well in the Champions League this week.

“This was important for our team and our self-confidence, just after the last few days,” said Flensburgs Thomas Mogensen. Before 5488 spectators Marvin Sommer (6) threw most DHfK hits, with the guests Johan Jakobsson was the best pitcher with eight goals.
Erlangen could only compete against the lions at the beginning. But the master could not be impressed by a 2:5 delay and turned the game up to the break. With 10/5 goals, Gudjon Valur Sigurdsson was the best pitcher in the winner. Jonas Link scored eight hits for winning.
