After a string of defeats, finally Bergischer produced a good display, and have secured an important away win at Emsdetten in the relegation battle. Bergischer won the game quite easily, with huge 34:22 (18:14). HBW Balingen, Bergischers’ main contender in the relegation battle, have secured an important point away at Goppingen, game ending 25:25. In the other two encounters, Magdeburg were below-par at home against Gummersbach, and only drew 25:25, while Hannover-Burgdorf recovered from the away defeat at Kiel, and minimally beat HSG Wetzlar with 25:24.
With three rounds to go, Bergischer are two points ahead of HBW Balingen on the 15th place, and it seems the final three rounds will decide who will join Eisenach and Emsdetten in the “Zweite” Bundesliga.
