After a largely weak performance, the Wülfrath third division handball players are disappointed. Despite the defeat, she remains in third place in the table.
1. FC Köln 01/07 – TB Wülfrath (women) 24:20 (14: 7). Despite the first defeat this season, the TBW handball players still claim third place in season D of the third division. However, this is only a small consolation for Michael Cisik’s team, who saw no country die in Cologne for long stretches and left the field disappointed in the end. Meanwhile, the Cologne women worked their way up to fourth place in the table and are thus directly behind the Wülfrath team.
For the first time in this championship round, the TBW presented a poor performance. That was not only due to the failures, because the long-term injuries Jule Kürten and Melina Otte are already missing on the first three game days, vacationer Friederike Büngeler already in the successful home game a week ago against Gedern / Nida. More difficult was the absence of circuit runner Simone Fränken, whose duty on the match day lasted longer than planned. And on the morning of the game, Katharina Karbowski also reported sick.
Despite the bad omens, the Wülfratherinnen kept the game open for ten minutes and were only 4: 6 behind. But then the Cologne women put an 8: 1 run to 14: 5 (25th) – the preliminary decision. “Cologne were strong opponents, created pressure from the backcourt and played well across the circle,” said Michael Cisik, describing the qualities of 1. FC. The TBW coach, on the other hand, attested to his own team: “We didn’t find the right antidote, we were too passive, let Cologne get into the game and couldn’t get Jule Killmer under control – she scored seven goals.”
The virtues that lead to success in the first encounters, let the guests miss this time completely. “There was no pressure or committed game at the front – the responsibility was passed on,” Cisik put his finger in the wound. Although the Wülfratherinnen found better in the game after the break and even caught up to 20:22 (57th) shortly before the end, the TBW handball players made a capital pass, which the opponent used to lead them 23:20 . With that the chance to achieve a point-sharing was put aside. “Such an experienced opponent plays it down,” Michael Cisik states.
The appearance in the second half reconciled the coach a little. “Suddenly things went pretty well, we made fewer mistakes and played bravely,” said Cisik. In the end, he only had to state the following as a conclusion: “The first half annoyed me in particular, it was a step backwards. We threw away four seven meters – the game could have turned out differently. ”And the realization:“ A team like that has to show character from time to time. She went into the game far too emotionless. ”Simone Fränken usually takes on the pushing part.
Next weekend the TBW team has no play. It will not continue until October 9th at home against the HSG Kleenheim-Langgöns.
