Karlsruhe (AP) - After three wins in a row, SC Paderborn suffered a setback on the ninth game day of the 2nd Bundesliga.
Ostwestfalen lost 0: 1 (0: 1) at Karlsruher SC on Saturday, missed the temporary jump to the top and instead slipped to fifth.
Daniel Gordon (7th minute) scored for KSC, who in turn celebrated their third win in a row and thus settled in the upper half of the table for the time being.
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 were a bit more dominant.
Substitute Kai Pröger missed her best chance after a counter attack (76th).
At KSC, goalscorer Philipp Hofmann's contract was extended by another year until June 30, 2022.
