Berlin (dpa) - The Füchse Berlin have won their first game after the one-week Corona break.
On Saturday evening the Berliners won the handball Bundesliga in Düsseldorf against Bergische HC thanks to an increase in performance in the second half with 31:29 (16:17).
For the foxes it was the fourth win in the seventh game.
The best Berlin thrower was Hans Lindberg with ten hits.
Coach Jaron Siewert had to do without the coronavirus infected Marian Michalczik and Milos Vujovic.
The foxes did not notice the week-long break in training.
Both teams immediately went to work with great intensity.
In the balanced game, both offensive rows dominated.
If one team took the lead, the other equalized immediately.
The foxes acted very variable in attack, tried to expand the game and found gaps again and again.
There was only bad luck with a few aluminum hits in the first half.
However, the Berliners conceded their goals too quickly and too easily.
In the 25th minute, the hosts took the lead with two goals for the first time (16:14).
The Füchse came out of the dressing room better and took the lead back with a 5-1 run.
Now goalkeeper Dejan Milosavljev was able to excel with a few saves.
The BHC fought its way back up and so it remained a close game.
The preliminary decision was made 52 seconds before the end, when Jacob Holm scored at 30:28.
Then the foxes brought victory to the finish.
