Mannheim and Düsseldorf are champions

The women of Düsseldorfer HC and the men of Mannheimer HC are the new German champions in indoor hockey.

The DHC won the final in Düsseldorf 5:1 (2:0) against the Mannheimer HC and thus made the double perfect after the title on the field. The best player at DHC was Sara Strauss, who ensured a comfortable 3-0 lead with her hat trick. “We always had to do more and that’s what we did,” said the U21 international.

The MHC men then prevailed 9:3 (5:2) against Berliner HC. “It was an absolute surprise that it would turn out like this. Nobody would have thought it before the season,” said MHC captain Jan-Philipp Fischer. As in the semi-finals, the match winner in the southern second place was keeper Jean Danneberg. The U21 national goalkeeper again mitigated eleven penalty corners alone and was honored as the most valuable player of the tournament.

The MHC had already led 5-0 after 19 minutes before Berlin reduced the deficit with six field players without a goalkeeper. Twice Paul Zmyslony and Luis Holste then increased to 8:2 and thus paved the way to the second indoor title after 2010.

In the semi-finals, the DHC women had dethroned the defending champion Club an der Alster 7:4. The Mannheim women won 2-1 in the penalty shoot-out (2-2) against Rot-Weiss Cologne. Afterwards, the MHC men caused a big surprise with their 5:2 victory over the defending champion and men’s record champion Cologne. The Berliner HC won 3:2 in the penalty shootout (5:5) against the Harvestehuder THC.
