The third division handball players of TuS Fürstenfeldbruck against Neuhausen almost gave up a victory they thought was certain.
Fürstenfeldbruck – In the end, Panther coach Martin Wild was joking.
It was already discussed in the final training session that the last attack of the game should go through Ole Schwagerus, says Wild.
Background: It was Schwagerus who shot the Panthers to victory with the goal for the final score of 34:33.
It was his only goal of the game - and what an important one.
Wild then had to admit that the choice of shooter was not his tactic, but rather a happy coincidence.
"Nevertheless: Hats off that he does it like that." For a long time, Schwagerus didn't look as if he would do one at all.
"The rest of the game was rather below average for me," admitted the line runner himself.
But maybe that was exactly what gave Schwagerus the decisive kick.
"I thought to myself: I have to do it now and I threw myself in again and gave 110 percent."
Panther jammed in the final minutes
Lucky for the panthers.
Because they were about to gamble away a comfortable lead.
Up until about ten minutes before the end it looked as if the Bruckers would win in front of a good 600 spectators.
Even goalkeeper Michael Luderschmid took part in the scoring and scored twice in the orphaned goal after the Neuhausener had exchanged their goalkeeper for another field player due to a time penalty.
In their attempts to attack, they lost the ball precisely to Luderschmid, who was accurate from afar.
But in the final phase suddenly no more goals wanted to be scored.
The Panthers missed five or six big chances.
And suddenly it was 33:33.
This was followed by the appearance of Schwagerus at 34:33.
But Neuhausen had possession for another 30 seconds.
The Panthers' defense seemed to be holding.
And yet the guests found a throwing position from the back room again.
However, the leather smacked the crossbar and then went out.
The rest was Brucker cheers.
Returnee Riesner is getting better and better
The Panther side was not only happy about the two important points at the start of the year.
The performance of Cedric Riesner, who was injured for a long time, should also have pleased Wild.
The defensive specialist suddenly also shows offensive qualities and contributed five goals to victory.
After his long injury break, he found it difficult to get back into playing handball, reports Riesner.
"But now I think I'm on the right track."
However, the circle runner was not surprised that things got tight again against Neuhausen.
"It was clear to us during the break that they would come close again with their pace in attack," he said.
"In the end, however, I believe that it is a deserved win for us - even if it was close." (Andreas Daschner)
