u 16-2 five pt win vs Herner TC keeps them close with six other teams in the Tabelle

Well if there weren't gonna be  anymore surprises in this season. I have to say "YOU ARE WRONG". Seven weeks into the season and after this last weekend of games it just shows how competitive this Landesliga of kids is. 1. Siegen vs Langendreer (Siegen lost) , Horst vs 2. Dusseldorf (D.dorf lost), Gerthe vs Konigshardt  (Konigshardt lost ),  Harkortsee had a BYE last week .  

Barmen on saturday welcomed Herner TC into liegnitzer with one goal on there mind , BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY!! 

But it wasnt easy !! Herne started strong right from the jumpball. going up 5-0 before BTV first basket . during the period , barmen was down as much as 8 pts but rallied back to 1pt before going down by 4 at the end of the period 18-22. 2nd quarter , Barmen defense started to show itself a little , with rebounding by M. Kinder , who did most of the work in the second , enabling barmen to win the period 14-7 and go up 32-30 by half.  

3rd period was a back and forth affair , E.Bodur, B. Sismann, P Schwenteck , could not get anything to fall in the first two mins of the game and Herne once again took the lead and was up by 8 pts again before Barmens Engines got going . Herne won the period 14-15 ( 46-45 for BTV) . 

4th quarter , the game stays just as tight neither team can get on a long run , and B Sismann fouls out the game with 6 mins to go , but BTV Bench came in and played great defense and little by little Barmen starts to pull away going up by 6 in the 37 minute . Herne had FT problems down the stretch and E.Bodur for Barmen scored 13 pts in the 4th keeping the lead safe as Barmen played clock offense to finish the game with a 67-62 Win . 

NOW LETS ASK : Why I posted the other games this time ?, OK Here it goes . 7 games   / at the moment Siegen is still #1  5-2 (one more game played then the rest so far), D.Dorf, Langendreer, Gerthe, Barmen, Harkortsee, (all 4-2) tied for 2nd place, Horst 4-3 also is tied with playing an extra game . So this game on Saturday can "Make us or Break us" !!

This years league is really intense but THATS THE GAME !
