Last quarter brings success for RSV against Frankfurt

64:47-win against Mainhatten Skywheelers – Dirk Köhler outstanding
RSV Lahn-Dill wins the "Hessenderby" against Frankfurt´s Mainhatten Skywheelers in front of about 800 fans by finally deciding the game in the last quarter. An outstanding performance showed Center Dirk Köhler, who scored a double-double with 23 points and 15 rebounds.
After having a souvereign first quarter the RSV fell back a little in the second so the team from Frankfurt succeeded in coming back into the game and the halftime-score showed a 34:24 for Wetzlar. Now everybody in the gym expected the home-team to force a decision but Frankfurt scored 8 in a row to bring the game to a 46:42 at the end of the third quarter.
Then with a three-point-ply to score the 49:42 (31.) Dirk Köhler called for a 15:0-run that should now finally bring the game home for Wetzlar."It was important for us to show such a winner´s mentality in the end of the game, because we should keep this in mind for the game against Zwickau when we compete for number-one spot in the league at the Rittal-Arena next week“, RSV-coach Zeltinger resumed.
