"Haching is playing a very athletic, experienced, and compact. This will be a different game than against Düren – but I am of the opinion that Haching is.“
With the Dürenern had the Berlin but especially in the third set, no more problems. "The game was tight and hotly contested, in the second sentence, we have cracked it," was Moritz Reichert, the outside attacker of the Volleys. In the second passage, there was – with the exception of Tiger Charly – no one in the hall, wandering aimlessly and joked. Much too thrilling this was to Happen. Similar to the first passage, the Volleys thanks to an excellent block-defense, they had won, they started well in the second well. But then the Dürener with sophistication came from and force, took advantage of their opportunities and led 4:6.

It should be the preliminary decision, because in the third set, the guests had to oppose the master, hardly anything. The Berliners much, have now succeeded in the demoralized Dürenern very little. Patch and co. conjured up on the plate, Tiger Charly posed for photos with the good humour of the rescue workers - and the hall Director played a party hit after the next. Reichert was allowed to, finally, transform the second match ball for 25:15. "Haching has a different game, but the intensity is similar," he said later, and looked determined. One suspects that they will remain hungry, the players of BR Volleys.
