Dennach and Calw go to the DM - relegation fixed

With two victories, the TSV Dennach fistballers have secured their ticket to the German Championships in Moslesfehn. TSV Calw and TV Segnitz are on course for the championship, only TV Käfertal could be dangerous. SV Tannheim and TSV Gärtringen have been relegated after two 3-0 defeats, reported


Dennach first had to stretch against TSV Pfungstadt to master the next step towards Moslesfehn (15:13, 11:8, 11:9). Against Gärtringen, TSV then celebrated a quite sovereign 3:0 (11:5, 11:3, 11:3) victory. The latter had to do without main attacker Kim Niemann, who had injured her ankle during the final training on Friday evening. Against Pfungstadt, a little more had been possible at first. But in the second set, the Gärtringen women did not manage to use their set points - instead, the team from southern Hesse prevailed with 11:6, 15:13 and 11:4.

Together with Gärtringen, SV Tannheim has to go down to league two. The team from the district of Biberach lost against TV Segnitz (3:11, 3:11, 5:11) and TSV Ötisheim (6:11, 1:11, 7:11) without winning a set. In addition, the Segnitz women underlined their DM ambitions in three close sets against Ötisheim and defended third place (11:9, 13:11, 11:9).

Thanks to the two victories, TVS now has a two-point lead over TV Käfertal. The Mannheim women just missed a surprise against TSV Calw after leading twice in sets (15:13, 4:11, 13:11, 5:11, 5:11), but thanks to a 3:1 (11:7, 11:6, 4:11, 11:2) they have not yet finally said goodbye to the fight for the DM tickets. Calw consolidated second place with a 3:0 (11:5, 11:5, 11:8) against TVU.


On the last matchday, Tannheim and Gärtringen say goodbye to the top flight with home matches. Tannheim will play Dennach and Käfertal, while Gärtringen will face Ötisheim and Unterhaugstett. In Pfungstadt, Segnitz's first priority is to secure third place and the DM - and then there would even be the chance to move past TSV Calw into second place in a direct duel.
