Karlsruhe (dpa / lsw) - Karlsruher SC celebrated its third victory in a row in the 2nd Bundesliga on Saturday.
The Baden team beat Bundesliga relegated SC Paderborn 1-0 (1-0) on the ninth matchday and thus settled in the upper half of the table for the time being.
Daniel Gordon (7th minute) scored against disappointing Ostwestfalen, who had previously won three times in a row.
The veteran Gordon, who had only received a new contract after the start of the season, took the first chance of Karlsruhe to take the lead.
Following a corner, the defender failed with his head, but then hit with a stabber.
In the 24th minute, Kyoung-Rok Choi almost raised, but Paderborn's Jamilu Collins saved just before the line.
Five minutes before the break, Gordon headed the crossbar.
The guests, on the other hand, created next to no danger offensively - not even in the second half, in which they appeared a little more dominant.
Substitute Kai Pröger missed her best chance after a counter attack (76th).
At KSC, the contract of goal scorer Philipp Hofmann was extended for another year until June 30, 2022 thanks to his use thanks to a clause.
