Good news first: Captain Jennifer Janiska was able to play – albeit with a heavily bandaged right thigh.

It went like clockwork for the hostesses. Kayla Haneline and Sarah Straube shone with aces right from the start, and the attacks were also spot on – 5:2.

But the Thuringians stayed on, mainly thanks to their strong US winger Jaidyn Blanchfield (6 points in the 1st set).

When the DSC smashed the ball out twice in a row, it was 11:11. Head coach Alex Waibl took a break, his team presented again. From 5:15 p.m., the Dresdeners went through to 9:15 p.m., impressing several times with their strong block game. Monique Strubbe scored at 25:17.

With the 0:1 at the start of the second act, the DSC was behind for the first time, but after the 3:4 only Lara Berger & Co. were still in control. After Haneline made it 10:5 for Dresden, Erfurt coach Konstantin Bitter took his second break.

After that it got tight again for a short time (12:11), but Black and White couldn’t counteract the pressure from the hosts. The third set ball brought the 25:19.

The third round was a clear demonstration of power by the hosts. After a block from Monique Strubbe it was 6:0. The first technical time-out was 8:0, the second 16:6. Linda Bock ended the one-sided game with the fourth match ball at 25:15.

“We managed for the first time to really impose our game on the opponent,” said MVP Sarah Straube. “We have to perform the same way against Potsdam in the cup as we did today, and we have to be very focused even in tight phases,” the setter looked ahead to the difficult task on Saturday.
