Velbert Baskets vs. CB Recklinghausen - 66:82
Sunday's game in Velbert wasn't won, however was full of a positive energy. Velberter girls started well and we could see many good actions on both sides of the court. Unfortunately, in the last 3 minutes of the 1st quarter Citybasket Reckinghausen had few well-played, quick counterattacks, which resulted in their lead in a game.
Passing over the fact of competing with the viceleader, local team was playing agressive, at the same time being supported by the motivation from the coaches and the loud cheering from the bench.
Velbert was trying to catch up by full court press, and mixed defence zones, however guests turned out to be experienced enogh to get out of it safely. What is more, they were practically unmistakable on the free throw line, what helped them to hold the points advantage on the stable level.
Maybe that match did not end with victory, but deifinitly girls left a good impression.
Final result: 66:82
The next game, which is the last game of the season 2016/2017 will take place in Opladen on 08.04.2017 at 18.00.
