In addition to the injury of the starting center fell after a few plays and two other top performers of offense, so that Bocholt was partially with players from the third row in the field. Signs that in combination with the tropical temperatures did not bode well. However, there is still the Defense, which held in both teams like a bulwark. Both sides had done their homework very well and were well prepared for the attack.

Then, from Bocholter's point of view, they played it safe and knelt down, so that the clock could run down and the game was over. "I am glad that my boys proved their character here today and brought the victory home. We went into the game with a lot of defeats and then had to replace three top performers right at the beginning, which was not easy. However, we have again shown what can be achieved with team spirit. We bit and fought, it paid off in the end. At the end of the season no one asks how they won the games, the main thing is they won. Now we will regenerate briefly and prepare for Tuesday's next opponent Duisburg "so coach Max Klingberg. Photo: Middelhoff [...]
