The sports bowlers of the SKK 98 Poing lost in the quarter-final first leg of the Champions League against the big favorite Victoria Bamberg with 1:7.
Poing – It was already clear with the draw, said SKK spokesman Erwin Zimmermann, “that the trip through Europe, which has been so successful so far, would probably end against the world’s best team”.
Under the eyes of Mayor Thomas Stark, Poing wanted to annoy the Bamberg guests at least a little and, if possible, win a point or two.
"Unfortunately, that only happened once," Zimmermann regretted.
Sandra Loncarevic won at 2:2 set points with 559:541 cones against the Croatian world champion Klara Sedler.
Nadine Boksic was just inferior at 2:2 sets with 548:557 cones.
Christina Neundorfer was only just beaten with a score of 2:2 with 541:552 cones.
Bettina Drexler/Barbara Schmidbauer played 517:580 (0:4) and Sarah Haslbeck lost 531:553 cones (1:3).
Claudia Süss played against the ExPoinger player Celine Zenker with 578:572 cones at least six points more and was still narrowly defeated with 1:3 set points.
The result with 3274:3355 cones proved that Bamberg also had its problems on the difficult-to-play lanes in Poing.
The Franconians played around 450 cones less than in the previous week in their Bundesliga record on their own lanes.
Zimmermann's conclusion: "A partial success for Poing was definitely within the realm of possibility." And Poing's Neuendörfer added: "Just the fact that we reached the quarter-finals in the Champions League is a great success that we can be very proud of.
Unfortunately, more was hardly possible with the lot.”
In the second leg in Bamberg, players from the second row at SKK Poing will also have the chance to play internationally and show what they can do.
Next Sunday, February 5th, we will continue at home with the Bundesliga 1 game against Lorsch.
