Due to injuries and other reasons, the squad was reduced to nine players from bamberg, all of whom were highly motivated. The team of coach alfred bayer wanted to show a high level of concentration, have fun playing and fight for every ball.
These intentions showed the veinal volleys throughout. The attacking VC katzwang-schwabach showed a consistently good performance. This did not make it easy for the bambergers.

Hammelburg’s fabulous wave riders

Hammelburg's fabulous wave riders

Alpenvolleys haching II – hammelburg volleys 2:3 (25:19, 25:22, 21:25, 16:25, 13:15). The team from saalestadt rides the wave of success and does not let itself be thrown off balance even by temporary setbacks. The hammelburg team remains unbeaten after its sixth matchday – and that after a 0:2 deficit at the upper bavarians, who with 17 points from nine games are one of the better teams of the 2. League may be counted. The volleys fans were able to follow their team’s game via livestream on their laptops and smartphones at home. Head coach cornel closca trusted the starting six from the leipzig game: laurentiu vinatoru started in the attack, while janick sill replaced the injured luca dierks in the middle block. But the saalemannen did not want to get going, too inaccurate especially the first ball, correspondingly disjointed the offensive play. Haching, meanwhile, did its homework in attack. With the volleys, especially the previous ease became a missing case.

Catastrophic service rate

In the second set, too, there was a high level of communication among the guests. The countless service errors, which made it impossible for the haching team to equalize the set, caused head-scratching on the home screens.

In the third set coach closca turned the personnel carousel, brought in the young hannes krochmann for veteran vinatoru and the even younger david baden, the day before still with the second team in the district league to net, for kapitan oscar benner on the diagonal. The desired impetus was initially absent, haching continued to build on what had been shown so far and remained tone-setting. At 16:11 for the home team, there was nothing to suggest that hammelburg would suddenly flip the switch and be wide awake in all parts of the team from then on. After a three-point and a five-point series, the scoreboard showed a hammelburg lead for the first time at 20:19. A double change at 21:21 and a strong fighting performance ensured the surprising connection.
