In the end it became surprisingly clear, 28: 21 in the final against Bundesliga leader Magdeburg. What did you think about the key to success today?
Definitely our defense – especially in the second half. Behind it Niklas held outstanding. But how Pekeler and Wiencek worked, that was incredible. If Magdeburg throws only eight goals in a whole halftime, then that’s not normal.

In the Bundesliga we just have to look now. Everything is in the hands of the Magdeburg, they currently have six points lead. If you have eggs, create that.
You have already seen during the game how much you enjoyed the support of the fans. Afterwards you have not spoiled a single autograph or image request. How did you experience that in the 60 minutes?
That was great. These are the moments, because of which you train so much in the preparation and during the week – to then make two such games in such a great arena and with such an incredible atmosphere. I am proud of the club and the city. Together we came here and go back to Kiel now.
