Promoted team Roller Bulls is overrun

81:27 – RSV canter to the win against Belgian guests
Three days after their defeat in Thueringen the RSV Lahn-Dill recouped themselves at home against promoted team Roller Bulls St. Vith with 81:27 (17:6/43:16/67:24) who did not stand a chance. Around 600 spectators watched a pretty one-sided match, which demonstrated the roles both the current German champions and the new member of the first division played in this game.
After the first basket scored by national player Jan Haller and four points each by Captain Michael Paye and newbie Joe Bestwick the team coached by Nicolai Zeltinger was already leading by 10:0 (5th min) when the Ardennes team’s Frederic Roloux could taste their first bit of success (6th min). The Belgian team seemed to find themselves better into the game afterwards and could almost even the game to a 27:14 (15th min) but could not actually keep the Hesse team off their road to success.
A 14:2-roll in the last five minutes before half-time, to which Thomas Boehme singlehandedly added eight points, made it quite obvious where this game was heading, and was topped after the break with another roll of 9:2 leading to 52:18 (23rd min). Whilst Thomas Gundert and Marco Zwerger, due to health reasons, had to watch without being able to intervene themselves, their team mates played their game competently via preliminary results 60:22 (28th min) and 72:24 (35th min).
“We’re definitely not there yet as a team, but another strong performance by Tommy Boehme and a hard-nosed Jan Haller, as well as a solid effort by Centre Felix Schell show that we’re on the right track.” says Head Coach Nicolai Zeltinger after the match on this third game day. In addition to the named trio Captain Michael Paye pleased as an offensive pivot in his team against the Belgians. Youngster Christopher Huber also took great advantage of his eleven minutes on the court, which the sixteen-year-old from Rockenberg used to score four points for his team. 
After their two very obvious home victories against Munich and St. Vith the RSV Lahn-Dill is now looking forward to a considerably harder away game next Saturday against the GOLDMANN Dolphins Trier, before the first big confrontation with long-term rivals RSC-Rollis Zwickau on the 20th of October in the August-Bebel-Sporthalle.
Lahn-Dill: Michael Paye (25), Thomas Böhme (17), Joe Bestwick (10), Felix Schell (8), Jan Haller (6), Gesche Schünemann (5/1 three-pointer), Christopher Huber (4), Dirk Köhler (4), David Amend (2), Björn Lohmann.
