VCE liked to maintain its good home record. The eltmanners have four home games left until the end of the season. After the 0:3 defeat at muhldorf, which played like a changed team, VC eschenbacher eltmann must first concentrate on achieving or defending a place in the middle of the table. A successful start to the first round with two victories against direct competitors was followed by a setback with a defeat at the last place. But this should not be the final straw for the wallburgstadter this season. At least the team has four home games in the remaining six games of the season and can look back on the strong one in its own georg schafer hall. With niederviehbach, herrsching and deggendorf, the teams on places two to four still have to hand in their visiting cards in lower franconia.
Overtaking the opponent
but the "team of the hour" makes the start on saturday, the SV schwaig. The team had to accept a bitter 2:3 defeat against herrsching in its own hall at the start of the second round, but then won the following away games in neumarkt and deggendorf. Thus it succeeded the central franconia to position itself in the table again before the VC eschenbacher eltmann on the fifth place. With a win, however, eltmann could move past and also take revenge for the loss of points in the first round, when the VCE had to leave the points in schwaig in the end, undeserved and with 2:3.
Second niederviehbach against third
the VC team does not want to hide from its direct rival, as VCE diagonal player johannes engel emphasizes: "we know about our strong position in the league. In our own hall it is very difficult for any opponent to beat us together with the support of our great fans." the SV schwaig should also get a taste of it.
While muhldorf wanted to confirm its upward form curve against deggendorf on the same day, the six remaining teams in the volleyball regional league did not have to play until sunday. The most interesting match was the meeting of the second niederviehbach with the third herrsching, because niederviehbach with a win could catch up with the first marktredwitz and keep the competition at a distance.
