Sikker sejr til 1. holdet i Divisionspokalens 1/8 finale
I går var vores1. Herrehold afsted til udebanekamp i 1/8 finalen af Divisionsåpokalturneringen
Turen gik ned i det dybeste Sønderjylland, nemlig Sønderborg, hvor holdet skulle møde Spirillen BK fra Serie 1. Træner Kim Malfroy var til dels tilfreds med holdets præstation:
"We played with only 8 players out of the 15 player squad. As has been the norm, we got off to a strong start and was able to stretch a seven-point first-quarter lead (16-23) into a 20-point halftime advantage (26-46). In the 3th period we played sloppy basket, given 2nd shots away to Spirillen, or not being focused in offense when we're passing. After a time out we played better and focused more on teamplay which led us after 3 periods with 39-75.
Going into the final period Spirillen ultimately put effort to make it a hard 4th period for Odense but we kept the energy and won the game with 54-100. Every player has a big part in the easy roadkill, but we didn't shine on the court against a 3 level lower team. We had a lot of turnovers, weak passes, no confidence in passing and only 60% on the free throws (21/35).
(Billede - 1. holdet under opvarmning til kampen)
Our next game will be the 1st game in the Division 1 league on 11 october away against the previous champions Aalborg, and hopefully we can recover some players and play as never before."
