First division relegated Bremer HC won 2-1 at the Hamburg Polo Club at the end of the first half of the season. Maria Granatto (23rd) and Thora Schneider (26th) ensured the 2-0 half-time lead, which lasted for a long time. The Polo goal from former Bremen player Svea Böker (60th) came far too late to bring anything worthwhile for the Hamburg team.
After four wins in a row, the Bonn THV was brought back down to earth. At DSD Düsseldorf there was a 1:2 defeat, which Mia Rosser sealed with her late corner goal (58th). Maike Behlau (29th) equalized Düsseldorf’s lead through Myrthe Hebert (24th) to make the score 1-1 at halftime. Bonn could have moved up to second place, but is now in third place over the winter. Düsseldorf ends the first half of the series in fourth place.
There was also a 2-1 home win at Klipper Hamburg, who scored an important three-pointer against Hannover 78 to move away from the bottom half of the table. Hannover could have to overwinter as bottom of the table if the Crefeld HTC gets at least two points in their Sunday game in Leverkusen.
In the game between the Nuremberg HTCV and TuS Lichterfelde there were no goals for a long time, but two in the last four minutes. First Elena Herbst (56th) gave the Berlin guests the lead, Madelaine Wandelt (60th) saved her NHTC team into the shoot-out, where the bonus point went to TuSLi. Only Müller scored for Nuremberg, Krause and Schneider made it 2-1 for Lichterfelde.
There were no goals at all in 60 minutes of play between HG Nürnberg and Feudenheimer HC, so it went into a shoot-out here too. Groß and Plumhoff scored for the HGN, G.Schubert, Hechler and Margraf ensured Feudenheim’s 3-2 victory.
Even though Blau-Weiss Berlin only had one point in their hands at TuS Obermenzing in the end because the following shoot-out was lost after the final score was 1-1, but this one point was enough for the promoted team from the capital to finish at the bottom of the southern table to the ATV Leipzig, which is not playing today.
