TV/DJK hammelburg – TV bliesen (saturday, 8 pm)
Coach cornel closca doesn’t waste any time: "yes, kalli will play, by all means." The "kalli" – this is lorenz karlitzek, ur-hammelburg, who moved from rottenburg (1. Bundesliga) came. Due to injury he could not yet play a league game. That should change against the TV bliesen. If he comes to hammelburg at all.
It was at the preparatory tournament in gotha that karlitzek felt pain in his knee after a jump serve. Things didn’t get any better, so the first-league experienced hammelburger had to take a break for weeks.
Recently he was slowly introduced to the team. This week, karlitzek trained all the way through – without pain, says his training manager. On friday evening – at the final training – the knee should be tested again under the eyes of the team doctor. But closca was convinced that the returnee is fully fit again.
That karlitzek is a different player – the romanian coach leaves no doubt about that. He particularly praises its "bounce and very good technique". Not everyone in the team has his quality." Above all, however, the hammelburger can score points with one thing: first league experience. He ei early in the 1. Changed league, plays smart, makes few mistakes. Nevertheless he is still a young guy.
In general, the saalestadter want to build on the disciplined team performance against the last league opponent gotha and deliver a good evening program to the visitors in the saaletalhalle, which was again limited to 200 spectators. For the hammelburg officials, compliance with the strict hygiene concept is again a top priority, so all spectators are again asked to bring their mouth-nose covering and to inform themselves about the hygiene rules in the saaletalhalle. According to press spokesman oliver wendt, 100 tickets had been sold by friday evening.
Covid-19 in bliesen environment
Whether it actually takes place, however, depends on the opponent and – once again – corona. In a gym where three bliesen players were staying, there was a positive covid-19 case. On monday, the three players were tested – with negative results.
Wednesday was the turn of the rest of the team. And there were still some results pending on friday afternoon. The bliesener, wendt announced on demand, were only travel if the complete squad, corona-negativ is. The three originally suspected players remain at home, by the way, and are replaced by players from the bliesen top league team.
The comeback of lorenz karlitzek – hanging by a thread.
