U14 vs VFL Bochum and TSV Hagen split 1-1

Well Everyone , i really have to take my hat off for this Basketball team !!!! Not only did they come up from the Kreisliga, but they played great thru out this year currently holding 2nd place with a 6pt spread ahead of Langendreer. 

VS VFL Bochum  26.3.17 , the guys played hard but it was not a good day , losing in a 52-48 early sunday morning game . shooting an ugly 1/14 from the freethrow line , the guys still had their chances but in the end came up short . this loss also snapped an 8 game winning streak since the loss to Siegen back in december .  the consequences with this loss closes the small chance of maybe getting the chip with a win in Siegen on 30.4 . 

VS TSV Hagen 1.4.17 , the guys came out and played great ball !! taking care of Hagen in a 78/33 win . our Big Men rebounded great with 4 players grabbing over 7 . Defense wins ball games , barmen caused alot of TO's and also coming up with 20 steals for the total Stat.  

Next game 30.4.17 in Siegen 

Last game  7.5.17 Vs Herner TC in Heckinghauser( People , it would be great if everyone could come and support our boys on their last game of the year !!! HOPE TO SEE YA THERE !! 

u14 vs Hagen 71/73 THRILLER and vs Langendreer 70/52 win

On 12.3.17 , Barmen went to BG Hagen knowing what kind of game it would be and the Importance of it . Holding on to 2nd place and only a game and 15 pts behind Siegen.
This game was close from the start , back and forth thru the first quarter and ending with a 17/18 for BTV. the second period was the same result with Hagen taking a one point lead with a 17/16 quarter and the game tied at 34/34. (Hagen got as far as 4 points ahead of Barmen in the 24th minute of the game but barmen fought back )
The 3rd period Barmen took more of the initiative and had a couple of runs to push the lead out to 4 points before ending the quarter with a 18/21 lead, giving Barmen a 3 point lead 52/55 .
In the forth quarter Barmen playing good Defense , made a few good plays and widened the lead to 11 points , with 4 mins to go . But Hagen was not out just yet , they rally but come up short losing by 2 points in a 71/73 win For Barmen .
BARMEN shot 50% fg, 38% ft, but had 31 Turnovers (mainly from travelling calls)
I as a coach, have to take my hat off to BG Hagen , they r a very Good Team, and they gave us problems with trying to stop them . 

On 18.3.17 , Barmen welcomed Langendreer to BTV Liegnitzer Halle , in a very Early Sunday Morning game . And it showed in Barmen, starting off slow . The guys were not able to get and penetrate to the Basket . ( 1 reason due to the halle being to small , this is not Heckinghauser ) . So with the first quarter being one of the worst quarters for us this year , barmen gave Langendreer a 8/17 lead . Langendreer picked up a new player and he was a BIG BOY . Skills were ok but he managed to hit a few good shots in the quarter .
The second quarter Barmen had to go to other strategies  in the offense because of the size of the halle , and started playing ISO , and CLEAROUTS , just to get an opening to the basket . Also applying a 100% press defense and causing three turnovers which turned into fouls by Langendreer , Barmen was quickly shooting free throws for the rest of the quarter cause of Team Fouls . in which we shot 22fts and making 10 . Langendreer had push they points up to 27 before going into a slump and not scoring again until barmen closed the lead to 5 with a 24 /29 difference . and Barmen finishing the 2nd  20/12 only down 1 point 28/29.
The third quarter was a whole new story , the guys were their normal selves. defending the passing line and coming up with steals and taking control of the quarter with a 29/12 and a 57/41 lead in the game . The fourth quarter barmen played steady thru out winning a 13/11 quarter and finishing off langendreer in a 70/52 win .
THIS GAME EVERYONE CAME AND DID THEIR PART ,even when we were behind they didnt give up !! 

Next Game vs  Vfl Bochum Astrostars  26.3 in Bochum 10:00am .  

 

u14/2 holds on to 2nd place !!!

OUR GUYS DID IT TODAY !!! 

U14/2 with a 83/62 win in the HECK vs MTG HORST.  

Although as a coach , and understanding the term "INJURY" that is what had happened with Horst . with only 6 players and there leading scorer hurt , Barmen took advantage and started the game taking a 10 point lead in the first period ,but only to give 8 points back due to substitutions, and also having foul issues with our BIG MEN : 1st period 19/18-
Then in the 2nd period , the game was played pretty tight until Barmen went on a 6/0 run and by half had a 5 point lead 39/34. Barmen was having problems with the good play from HORST #5 and the touch fouls that were called by the referees.  
The third period was mainly Barmen , with a change in the defense and also stingy , Barmen came out with 3 steals which were converted into point and we let the #5 shoot from outside instead of letting him penetrate to the basket . Barmen won the period by 7pts and the score was 61/48 . 
The 4th period Barmen had the game pretty much secure, but as a coach "YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT CAN HAPPEN IN 10 MINS " so staying with the same plan Barmen again won the period by 7 pts and went on to win 83/62-
But i have to give Horst some credit here because i know they have a great team and things might have been different if they were healthy and all of there players there.
BUT OUR GUYS ARE STRONG TOO AND I BELIEVE EITHER WAY WE WOULD HAVE WON TODAY !!
WE ARE NOW IN 2ND PLACE ALONE , DUE TO ANOTHER GAME PLAYED TODAY , BG HAGEN 3RD PLACE , LOST TO VOERDE 55/77. 
GOOD JOB GUYS AND WE MUST STAY FOCUSED !!!!  1 GAME AT A TIME !!

u14/2 wins easy vs Gerthe and Voerde UP NEXT ,MTG HORST

The guys took care of things the last two games vs Gerthe with a  83/18 Blowout. Now Gerthe who are in 10th place in the league showed some things in the game before beating Horst by 3 point the week before and last week they won by 1 point vs BG Hagen.
I know , i was in shock and awe too . but congrads to Gerthe . they changed up the tabelle and help Barmen out , Who are currently in solo 2nd place .
Last week vs Voerde  Barmen  came out fast and strong and didnt look back going on to win with a 54/94 40 point win . which will help with points in the tabelle .
The team is showing good signs and getting better each game within a team aspect . UNITY !!! thats one of the characteristics of a Team !!

First blowing out Herner TC , 41/78  15.1.17. 

Easy warmup after Xmas and New Years for the Guys . winning Big in the 1st and 3rd Quarters  getting the guys ready for the second half of the season . 

Today 22.1.17 vs Konigshardt in Oberhausen , the guys played without 3 players 2 Bigmen , 1 guard , Barmen had to resort to other players to fill the void !!
