The solution is as easy as it is complicated: simply win again. The Göde team showed how it works against Dormagen at the start of the season in the DHB Cup.

“But now they come around the corner with a lot more self-confidence,” warns Ivar Stavast (24) about the opponent from North Rhine-Westphalia. He was an important factor in the cup game three months ago with seven goals.
