Leipzig no match for title-bound Löwen

Leipzig no match for title-bound Löwen

The Rhein-Neckar Löwen are back on track after the tough defeat at the Füchse Berlin on Sunday, easily cruising past newly-promoted Leipzig by a score of 31-20 (13-10). The hosts tried everything possible to make it hard for the lions, even using an additional player replacing goalkeeper Jens Vortmann already in the first half, but the indiviual class of the league leader was just too much for the SC.

Captain Uwe Gensheimer led his side with seven goals, including three from the line, while Andy Schmid added six. Philipp Weber, who will leave Leipzig in the summer for Wetzlar, was his team’s topscorer with seven goals, two from the spot. With the win the Löwen moved one point clear of Flensburg and two of Kiel, which had lost at Magdeburg earlier yesterday.


SC DHfK Leipzig: Weber (7/2), Strosack (4), Remke (2), Steinert (2), Binder (1), Meschke (1), Sommer (1/1), Milosevic (1), Zhedik (1), Oehlrich (1)

Rhein-Neckar Löwen: Gensheimer (7/3), Schmid (6), Pekeler (5), Petersson (4), Groetzki (2), Larsen (2), Reinkind (2), Guardiola Vilaplana (1), Ekdahl du Rietz (1)
