Bundesliga handball players of SC DHfK Leipzig missed a surprise in the last game of the year. On Tuesday evening, coach Runar Sigtrigsson’s men had no chance against leaders Berlin Fuchse and lost 22:28 (9:14).

In the presence of 9,000 spectators, 19-year-old district player Mika Sazhenev became the best shooter of SC DHfK with four goals. The Leipzig team ended the year in the eleventh position of the table with 16:20 points. After the World Cup in Poland and Sweden (January 11-29), they won’t resume in the Bundesliga until February 16 with an away game at MT Melsungen.

At the end of the year, a fierce and fighting game developed in Berlin. The Leipzig team had to overcome a personnel setback early, as Oskar Sunnefeld saw a red card in the seventh minute. Both teams were error-prone in attack and goalkeepers Viktor Kireev for Berlin and Christian Saveraas for Leipzig stood out on numerous occasions.

The guests remained next to the favorites and after 15 minutes they were only behind with a score of 5:6. As a result, however, the Berliners found more strength in attack around back-line ace Matthias Gidsel and pulled away before half-time. Leipzig’s game was affected by many situations. In the 22nd minute, Simon Ernst had to leave the field early with his third free kick.

However, Leipzig rallied again in the second period and cut the deficit to 19:22 (49th), with three consecutive goals from Sajenev. The Foxes were not impressed and safely brought home their 15th win in the 18th game of the season.
