The Eagles fell exhausting at dwelling against Ahlener SG at first of the brand new third Handball Bundesliga season, dropping 28:35 (14:18). In entrance of 500 spectators on the Glockenspitzhalle, it was clear from the beginning that HSG Krefeld hadn’t actually warmed up in the course of the warm-up because of quite a few accidents. A scarcity of hustle and aggressiveness on protection and practically 20 turnovers on offense finally led to a blatant false begin. Although each referees didn’t begin the sport nicely, it didn’t considerably contribute to the defeat.

However, all of the masters who went by way of combined coaching and tried to steadiness expertise and personal class didn’t go nicely from the start. There was additionally unhealthy luck within the opening phases when Pascal Knoll and “KS” Brüren hit the submit and the submit. The protection additionally lacked aggressiveness and seemed too feverish of their actions. The guests, who had extra to supply when it comes to play, scored straightforward objectives and led to the break with 4 objectives.

The second half did not begin nicely for HSG both, with two setbacks. After the guests scored 5 objectives, coach Mark Schmetz introduced Lasse Hasenforter again on for Gustav Koenig, who scored halfway by way of the primary half. He introduced himself with a splendid parade. In addition, the coach despatched two again methods to the sphere in Merten Krings and Tim Klaasen. Under the management of captain Krings, who scored three objectives in a row, there was hope to scale back the distinction. But when Lars Jageniak missed a likelihood to scale back the deficit to 2 objectives (49′), the guests pulled again to 4 objectives. It was a foregone conclusion.
