There is still a lot to do for coach Rico Göde! DHfK Leipzig made HC Elbflorenz look pretty old in the friendly on Saturday.

Dresden – There is still a lot to do! Rico Göde wanted in the friendly of the HC Florence on the Elbe see a few reactions from his players to the individually better staffed DHfK Leipzig. But the Bundesliga club made Dresden look pretty old in front of 486 spectators in the BallsportArena, especially in the first round.

“You saw that when a first division team comes with so much physicality, then you can’t go on for so long. Heads are red quickly,” explained the HCE coach after 11:30 p.m. on Saturday.

Only once was the second division in the lead – 1-0 through Philip Jungemann after a few seconds. But Leipzig quickly equalized and also took the lead.

The DHfK constantly expanded the lead, it was 10:16 at the break, because the Göde team sometimes gave away good opportunities far too easily. “16 misses are just too many for me to tickle the DHfK,” Göde said angrily.

Leipzig, on the other hand, showed their individual class again and again and remained ice cold in front of the goal – even Dresden’s new goalkeeper Marino Mallwitz couldn’t do anything about it. After almost twenty minutes, Marius Noack was allowed to play – no less luckily.

After the break, the test was sometimes not quite as clear. Göde also relied on new staff: Lukas Wucherpfennig, for example, was back on the plate and with four goals was the best HCE thrower alongside Nils Kretschmer.

Göde: “We will learn our lessons from it and then the program will continue.”
