However, Flensburg also acted with handbrake on – but it's on Sunday in the top match against the Rhein-Neckar Löwen.
Duvnjak leads Kiel to victory
Led by a powerful Domagoj Duvnjak, THW Kiel decided to re-launch the new edition of the Cup semi-final in his favor. The Kiel goalkeepers initially had a weak day – the Danish World Champion Niklas Landin parried only in the 32nd minute, the first Berlin throw. All in all, the German record champion but increased after the break significantly and turned the 13:15 rest gap within five minutes in a 17:15. In a chaotic final phase of the THW but the decision then several times – and so should the foxes in the last few seconds but once again get the opportunity to equalize. But Fabian Wiede, who had announced the move in the previous break, should afford a momentous pass.
“It was completely my mistake. We announced the move, but I acted wrongly.“Berlin's Fabian Wiede
After the game, the left-hander took over the responsibility: “Of course I imagined the last pass at the last second and therefore I'm disappointed, it was completely my mistake, we called the move, but I acted wrong.” Kiel coach Alfred Gislason, on the other hand, was in for a breath of fresh air. “The championship has wobbled throughout the game, because in the first half, our defense has not occurred at all,” said the Icelanders. “The Berliners were clearer in the first half and we did not play that smoothly, it was a lot better for us after the break and it was a lucky win, no question.”
