What a heartbeat finale: HSG Würm-Mitte almost wins with the final siren at TuS Metzingen - thanks to a courageous decision by trainer Miriam Hirsch.

Graefelfing - 29 seconds are still on the hall clock in the third division handball game between TuS Metzingen II and HSG Würm-Mitte on Sunday evening when Miriam Hirsch takes her final break and orders her team's all-or-nothing attack.

When the score was 28:28, the HSG trainer took her goalkeeper off the field in order to complete the last move of the game in the seven-on-six majority game.

The danger in mind that if the Würmtaler Wildcats lost the ball, the hosts would have a free run on the orphaned HSG goal and the guests would suddenly be in line with zero points, at least with the one safe one.

Hirsch's explanation for her risky decision is simple: "I didn't want one, but two points."

The courageous plan works: Belma Beba finds the gap to Laura Steger, the most accurate wildcat of the day, the circle runner stays ice cold in front of the goal and marked the winning goal for the 29:28 final score for Würm-Mitte.

Würmtaler wildcats make games at TuS Metzingen "unnecessarily" exciting

Hirsch had demanded an “eight-point October” for the four games of her women and women A-Youth, the first two points of which were taken - albeit close. "Unnecessarily tight" the coach called the game in the closing stages of the game on Sunday, after her team had been ahead with six goals twelve minutes before the end (25:19), three minutes before the final siren the lead still had three Hits are (28:25). "In these situations you can see our inexperience," said Hirsch, who was ultimately delighted that the Gräfelfinger women took the two points home with them.

Although, according to their trainer, the wildcats dominated the game almost for the entire duration of the game, it took them a long time to break away from the Swabians.

That was the first time shortly before the break with 14:10.

It went into the cabins with a 16:13 for Würm-Mitte.

"We conceded a lot of Kullertore in the first half," explained Hirsch.

On the opposite side, the HSG once again left too many free balls - mainly from outside - lying around.

And the seven-meter quota remains an issue, with two out of four turned this time.

Then there was bad luck, Carolin Huebner hit the crossbar several times from the back room.

In the second half, Metzingen switched to more offensive cover.

“We didn't get along very well with that,” said Hirsch.

And so the TuS had a chance to win until the final minute.

At least until Miriam Hirsch went “all in”.
