Velberter girls travelled on Saturday afternoon to Herne, which they beat in the 1st round by almost 20 points. Mistaken were those who thought it was going to be an easy match, because it is known not recently, that the league is very unpredictable. Match started bad from the first call and there were commited a lot of mistakes in offense as well as in defense. Missed 100% lay ups and shots let the hosts hold the few-points lead during the whole game.
In the second half of the match Velbert was trying to cut the lead of the opponents by differential defense systems and insets of full court press, unfortunatelly the ball still could not find the way to the basket in the final moments. All in all, that day nothing worked and the team had to face a painful loss.
Last two games of the season will be certainly full of effort on the court, as Velberter girls are going to play against the viceleader- Citybasket Recklinghausen (Sunday, at 12.00 in Velbert) andagainst the leader - BBZ Opladen 2 (the next week) . Local team has nothing to lose, so the girls will surely play with character and will try to surprise the opponents with a positive results.
