World Handball: Kiel turns catch-up game against Berlin
Handball Association ends season due to Corona at state level
In Saxony there are no more championship games in handball at state level this season. With its unanimous decision, the Presidium followed a request from the Technical Commission to end the season.
After the break, THW Kiel won the catch-up game against the Füchse Berlin and is back on the road to success in the handball Bundesliga.
The THW Kiel won the catch-up game against the Füchse Berlin with an energy performance after the break and is back on the road to success in the handball Bundesliga. A week after losing the point against SC Magdeburg, Kiel won against Füchse Berlin 32:26 after being behind at half time with 13:16.
While table leaders SG Flensburg-Handewitt (30: 4 points) had a free weekend after canceling their Champions League game at Pick Szeged in Hungary, Kiel (25: 3) caught up a little. However, the record champions have still played three games fewer than the runner-up and northern rivals.
The defending champion turned against the foxes only after the break. Niklas Ekberg (2), Rune Dahmke and Domagoj Duvnjak scored one after the other and turned the half-time deficit into a lead. The hosts built them up to the final siren. The best thrower of the game was Berlin's Hans Lindberg, who with seven goals could not prevent his team's sixth defeat of the season.
