Top trio in the North Wins - Hannover hopes
The three top teams in the men's 1st Bundesliga North - VfK Berlin, TV Brettorf and TSV Hagen 1860 - won their Bundesliga matches at the weekend and underpinned their ambitions for the DM starting places. In the bottom of the table, TK Hannover celebrated an important victory in order to still intervene in the fight for class preservation. VfL Kellinghusen, on the other hand, is as good as relegated after two defeats in North Rhine-Westphalia.
VfK Berlin celebrated a 5:2 victory at Ahlhorner SV. Against the Blue-Whites, however, the undefeated league leader faced two arrears. After the 1:2, the capitals then turned up the heat and made their ninth win of the season perfect (11:7, 4:11, 11:9, 6:11, 8:11, 7:11, 4:11 ). A similar picture presented itself only a few kilometers away in Brettorf. The favored TVB ran after a 0:2 deficit against TK Hannover. Such a forecast could be found in live IPL betting app.
In particular, the jumps of Aaron Dumke and the wins of Christos Michalakis on the block gave the Leinestädtern the lead. After that, however, the relegation-threatened club made too many own mistakes, Brettorf came better into the game and won (11:9, 5:11, 6:11, 11:8, 11:7, 11:4, 11:2). TSV Hagen 1860 also performed sovereign. With a 5:1 (11:5, 11:7, 8:11, 11:8, 11:5, 11:6) victory, the DM host celebrated a successful start into 2022.
For VfL Kellinghusen, on the other hand, the losing streak continued. After the defeat in Brettorf the weekend before, the team from Störstadt, which continues to struggle with massive injury problems, was denied its first win of the season. The team lost 5-0 at Leichlinger TV, but the Rhinelanders scored important points in the fight to stay in the league (11:7, 11:4, 11:6, 11:4, 11:9). This was also the case for TK Hannover.
After the defeat in Brettorf, the TKH was doomed to win against SV Armstorf in order to have any chance at all of staying in the class. They succeeded: With 5:1 (12:10, 11:9, 11:8, 7:11, 11:2, 11:8) the Hanoverians achieved their third victory of the season and moved closer to SV Armstorf and Ahlhorner SV in the standings - even though they played two more matches. The remaining duels against Leichlingen, Ahlhorn and Kellinghusen are all likely to be finals.
The one against ASV is scheduled for next weekend. The Ahlhorners are also guests of bottom team Kellinghusen. In addition, TSV Hagen 1860 and Leichlinger TV welcome VfK Berlin on their NRW trip. TV Brettorf will host SV Armstorf on Saturday.
