In preparation, the HSC bad neustadt (1./12:0) twice with TS friedberg (8./6:6) crossed blades and twice had the upper hand. "But that should not tempt us to be overconfident. There is a world of difference between preparatory and league games", female HSC coach matthias obinger.
The current weakness of the swabian team should also not be a reassurance pill for the spa town’s inhabitants. Last year’s champions, who for financial reasons decided against promotion to the second league, can play handball, as the fourth-placed SG kondringen/teningen recently learned in a 26-27 defeat.
Goran djuricin is becoming increasingly important for the HSC attack, but he is in danger of dropping out due to a feverish cold. "He’s hardly been able to train this week, but I hope I can get him into action if necessary", says obinger. So gary hines or michal panfil will be challenged.

"Overall, I am optimistic", announces its campaign manager, who warns against a walkover despite being the favorite. And as usual demands a concentrated performance.
"The top match against coburg in two weeks’ time must not be in our minds yet, we must first do our homework."
