Rojewski, Magdeburg surprise Melsungen

Rojewski, Magdeburg surprise Melsungen

What a finish by the SC Magdeburg: The team of rookie head coach Bennet Wiegert was already down by three goals with less then three minutes to go, but was able to steal a point at Melsungen as Andreas Rojewski, playing in just his ninth game of the season due to injury problems, beat the buzzer with his game-tying goal (28-28, 14-13 at the break) in the last second of the game. Yves Grafenhorst and Robert Weber had scored before to make the comeback possible. Weber led Magdeburg with eight goals, while Philipp Müller scored six times for the hosts.

The MT remains winless since starting goalkeeper Jojan Sjöstrand suffered a hand injury late in February in the home-win against Wetzlar, but remains on track to finish 4th in the standings, currently six points clear of both the Füchse Berlin and Frisch Auf Göppingen, who are tied in 5th place. Melsungen now has a month off as the next national team break looms, hosting Balingen in mid April, while Magdeburg will travel to Denmark facing Aalborg in the EHF Cup.

Statistics:

MT Melsungen: Müller (6), Sellin (5/3), Forstbauer (4), Schneider (3), Maric (3), Boomhouwer (2), Rnic (2), Danner (2), Vuckovic (1)

SC Magdeburg: Weber (8/3), Damgaard (5), Rojewski (5), Grafenhorst (4), Zelenovic (2), Haaß (2), Bagersted (1), Lemke (1)
