These two teams have never played against each other. On Saturday there will also be a premiere in Hanover for the handball players of Königsborner SV, who are already small favorites in the game. Coach Kai Harbach still has great respect for the newcomer from 2019.
Hannoverscher SC – Königsborner SV
With the HSC, the team from the district town expects a largely unknown opponent, but KSV trainer Kai Harbach has of course learned from video recordings. “Hannover has had some good results this season. We can expect a fast squad that is good at counter-attacking ”, is the first analysis of the KSV trainer.
After the last 35:24 win against I. Bürener SV, his team is an absolute favorite in the table with 8: 8 points. After victories against Ibbenbüren, BVB 2 and ASC, the HSC has so far collected 6:10 points and is now in seventh place. For the KSV goal relegation, which would have been achieved with sixth place after the end of the preliminary round, two more away points would do well.
Great self-confidence after victory over Ibbenbüren
Just like KSV 2019, Hannover rose to the 3rd division. It was the third time at Königsborn and the premiere at HSC. So far there has not been a direct duel. Most recently, Hannover suffered two home defeats against top teams. While it was still a close match against SG Kirchhof, there was a clear defeat last week in the city derby against TV Hannover-Badenstedt with 23:34.
The most dangerous players in the ranks of the Lower Saxons are Marie Seidler (38 field goals) and outside player Naemi Leston (37). The KSV trainer also has respect for the tall cyclist Ronja Ridder. But the self-confidence in the ranks of the KSV has grown tremendously after the victory over Ibbenbüren, so that the task is approached full of optimism.
The program after the Hanover game is also tough for KSV, as it goes against the four top teams in the league afterwards. In Hanover, the KSV will appear with the squad of the Ibbenbüren game. Left-hander Maike Esterhaus will continue to be absent due to an injury.
