Defeat in the DHP Cup Final
Melsungan missed out on a historic cup win
MD Melsungan lost the final of the DHP Cup, thus losing the first title in the club’s history – the rival Lemko Lippe being the strongest.
Md Melsungan made club history when he reached the final, but winning the DHP Cup was not enough for North Hess. The team had to concede defeat to DPV Lemko Libe on Friday with 24:28. MT got off to a great start in the game, but then the so-called foreigner came back and led the break with 15:12. In the second round, Melsung’s weaknesses in the defensive and hot finals even had internal group discussions.
“The disappointment is huge, we are empty,” said MD Board Member Axel Kierkegaard. “We will analyze it. It will continue on Sunday. We have no time to mourn.” The team is simply flat. “But – we didn’t want to look for excuses. We played very badly.”
Started strong, a lot lower
The 2,000 fans at the Hamburg arena saw a different final, in which Melsungan Pundeslica Eight and Lemco Eleven gave each other nothing for free. The Melsangers quickly ordered. After all, the game masters Guy Hoffner and Tobias Reichman set the tone.
Twice North Hessey took a three-goal lead. But Lemco did it just like the night before against the hinge and didn’t impress the deficit. A few minutes later, Lipperlander had three goals ahead.
MT shows nerves
Lemco coach Florian Kehrman adjusted his team well after reading the video at night. His team clearly dominated against MT after the break. Finn Jacker plundered Melsungar, the last nerve of the gate.
The agile Lemcors often deceived the MT with lively attacks and profited from their quick actions. MD Melsungan, who has played for the Bundesliga without interruption since 2005, has never won a trophy and missed out on its biggest chance. Coach Gudmundur Gudmundsen’s team no longer seems to believe in a turn as the game progresses.
