On Saturday evening Damen 1 (10th) went to play against Hagen (4th). The first half wasn't from a dream - the pace of a game was really fast, which led local team to score many easy points from the fast breaks. 1 on 1 defence did not work well and the first half got finished with the solid lead of the opponents.
In the second half Velberter girls played more agressive, taking an advantage of full court press. The tough defence, which forms were often being changed did not let the Hagen team score many points. They started to lose a ball frequently which woke up a new hope in a Velbert's team. Girls started to play wise, precise and brought to the play their vantages.
Unfortunatelly, there was not enough time to change the disadvantageous result from the beginning of the game. All in all we lost 65 : 54, however we all agreed that Saturday night team of Hagen was definitly beatable.
Next game, against NB Oberhausen, will take place on Saturday (18.03.2017) at 20.00 in Velbert's Sportzentrum.
