South Men: Vaihingen/Enz Goes To The Dm - It Will Be Tight For Waibstadt

The second DM-participant from the south is fixed: Beside TSV Pfungstadt also TV Vaihingen/Enz will play at the national title fights this year. TVV won last weekend against TSV Calw and TV Unterhaugstett. Bottom team TV Augsburg, on the other hand, is still waiting for its first win of the season.

TV Augsburg - TV 1880 Käfertal 3:5 (6:11, 5:11, 6:11, 11:9, 7:11, 11:7, 12:10, 2:11)


TV Käfertal was a guest in the FE-Halle at the weekend. Augsburg went, after the good performance the weekend before (2:5) motivated into the game. Not without reason - most of the squad was back after the long injury crisis. Only the reliable hitting strength of David Färber, who was missing due to shoulder problems, had to be dispensed with. The hall was well filled under the circumstances. The men around coach Uwe Schäfer started badly into the match. Only in the fourth set everyone woke up and a duel on eye level started. Sets four, six and seven went to the TVA. It was even possible to turn a 4:10 deficit into a 12:10, rather the guest from Mannheim turned it up again and won the eighth set clearly. Such forecasts had the highest odds on the IPL betting sites."Nevertheless, it was a great game that also let the opponent despair at times and can be built on next week in the Black Forest," TVA coach Schäfer drew a positive conclusion.

TV SW-Oberndorf - TSV Pfungstadt 1:5 (3:11, 8:11, 6:11, 11:8, 5:11, 8:11)

They are back: Fabian Sagstetter, who rejoined the team in running practice and also Oliver Bauer, who warmed up. But both remained without playing time, because there are more important matches than risking an injury against the reigning European Cup champion. Robin Göttert did his job well in front as the main attacker, was able to set accents again and again and also brought home the fourth set. The bottom line is that TSV brought their routine to the field without the complete esprit.

TV 1865 Waibstadt - TV Unterhaugstett 4:5 (3:11, 11:7, 11:13, 11:8, 8:11, 4:11, 11:6, 11:8, 8:11)

Waibstadt was able to stand up to TVU for a long time in front of a larger crowd. TVU started strong and led 4:2 after 75 minutes - but then TVW fought back and tied the match at 4:4. In the ninth set, there were then slight advantages for the TVU, which thus remains in the midfield of the table. For TV Waibstadt, relegation is already coming dangerously close - especially since two more tough tests in Käfertal and Pfungstadt are still on the list.

TV Vaihingen/Enz - TSV Calw 5:2 (11:8, 1:11, 11:6, 11:8, 7:11, 11:7, 11:9)

"It would be very theoretical if we didn't make it to the DM," said TVV coach Markus Knodel after the weekend's double victory. Because for that the pursuers would have to score against leader TSV Pfungstadt, while Vaihingen would have to leave feathers against last place TV Augsburg at the same time. And that the Vaihinger do not think at all to leave to the competition any sets, let alone points, they have shown at the home match on Saturday over clearly. "I aged again in that match," said Knodel shortly after the successful finish. Because except for two sets, his team always started with a deficit. "That's why I don't even know how Calw could lose the match. But we never gave up, always believed in it and turned around many sets. It was an awesome game." At that moment, Calw coach Thomas Stoll joins in and says, "It was a kick-ass game." After all, his boys also put on an inspiring performance, all too often failing to make anything of their lead. Every point was cheered frenetically - either by the Vaihingen supporters or by those of the Calw team.

The game of TV Vaihingen is characterized by the fact that the strike is completely focused on Johannes Jungclaussen. For the opponents it is therefore a proven concept to play directly to the Vaihingen attacker and thus to take him out of the game. That's what the Calw team tried to do again and again - except when Raphael Schlattinger got to the ball on the rebound and regularly sank it in the Vaihingen half with his enormous penetrating power.

"He is a world-class attacker," the TVV coach paid him respect. "But with our defense, even he has to take risks and that's why he makes mistakes from time to time."

TV Vaihingen took the first set 11:8, but benefited from four errors by their guests. In the second set, the hosts were completely out of steam. They made error after error, while Calw played with concentration and won 11:1. "There, every setback was a goal," said Knodel. But from then on, the Vaihingen team was back on its toes. By winning the third set 11-6, they went into the first break with a 2-1 set lead. Until the second break they extended it to 4:2, but with some fluctuations.


After Johannes Jungclaussen was repeatedly taken out of the match early on, Jakob Kilpper often had to take over the return - often with success, which was then cheered accordingly. The sets until the next break ended 11:8, 7:11 and 11:7 from Vaihingen's point of view. However, the set point in the sixth set had to be repeated because a spectator had already caught the ball, although TSV Calw's defensive action had not even failed yet. In the seventh set, Vaihingen closed the bag with 11:9.

TV Unterhaugstett - TV Vaihingen/Enz 3:5 (8:11, 11:7, 11:6, 11:7, 3:11, 9:11, 5:11, 2:11)

No spectators were allowed in Bad Liebenzell - so the witch's cauldron of Vaihingen was followed by a ghost match against TV Unterhaugstett. TVU had won 5:4 at TV Waibstadt on Saturday. "You could tell that both teams had long games behind them," Knodel said. "It wasn't that glorious." But Vaihingen, after again turning around a deficit, won 11-8, 7-11, 6-11, 7-11, 11-3, 11-9, 11-6 and 11-2.
