– The basketball players of TSV Jahn Freising saved the tiny chance of ousting FC Bayern Munich IV from second place in the Bayernliga Südwest at the end of the season.

In front of their home crowd, they defeated fifth place danadknights Augsburg in a hard-fought game with 83:75 (16:14, 38:37, 57:60).

(By the way: everything from the region is now also available in our regular Freising newsletter.)

It was like so often in the season that is coming to an end: In the last minutes of a game, the Jahn basket hunters not only have the famous second air, but they also focus immensely on their game and force their opponent into the game with impressive nerves of steel Knee.

The guests from Augsburg felt that.

The Swabians appeared self-confident in the Steinpark Hall and put Freisinger under a lot of pressure with their physical game until shortly before the end.

The leadership changed constantly.

For long stretches of the game, the Jahn youngsters repeatedly had problems stopping the robust guests under the basket.

That was very clever how the Augsburgers collected one point after the other under the Jahn basket.

Because the Freisingers then made completely unnecessary play errors again and again, they invited the guests to fast breaks.

The Jahn team had hardly anything to oppose the fast switching game of Augsburg.

The Jahn free-throw rate was sometimes no longer suitable for the Bavarian league

"We can't allow that many fast breaks," complained Jahn trainer Oliver Stojanovski.

At the beginning of the fourth quarter, Freising seemed unsettled.

The Jahn free throw quota was no longer suitable for the Bavarian league.

Five minutes before the end Augsburg led 65:61 and seemed much closer to victory than Freising.

Gabriel Makumpa had to leave the field prematurely after his fifth foul.

But then the Jahn team was jolted again – possibly initiated by Daniel Baierlacher's daring three-pointer, which is well worth seeing and made it 64:65.

Michl Babl finally hit his free throws.

And Jahn center Jannis Rodeck had had a perfect day anyway.

He now outdid himself.

The guests had nothing to oppose his ten points in the last two and a half minutes.

With 33 points he was the top scorer of the evening.

In the end, the Jahn fans were still allowed to cheer

In the end, the Jahn fans could celebrate with their team.

Stojanovski was visibly relieved.

“In the end we showed that we are the better team.

It was particularly important to me that all our players get enough playing time in this game.

Better not to step on the gas at the beginning, but all the more at the end – and then win the game.”

Played at TSV Jahn:

Babl (8 points), Baierlacher (5), Ballat (2), Brejc (6), Makumpa (10), Nickel, Rodeck (33), Schwankner (11), Schwarzmeier, Toure (3), Wanninger (5).
