“Holzfaller” secure the tournament victory

Pfarrweisach – subtropical temperatures prevailed at last year’s TSV pfarrweisach volleyball tournament, but this year it was a completely different story. So the organizer decided at short notice, due to the unstable weather, to move the tournament to the gymnasium to avoid injuries on the slippery track. In the end, this was the right decision, especially since light rain showers started again and again in the afternoon.
Six hobby teams, mostly from the pfarrweisach and ebern areas, had gathered to determine the tournament winner. Including "jader bull", a team of the girls of the country youth salmsdorf. The mode provided that in each team at least two ladies had to stand. It was everyone against everyone with a total of 15 games, two sets of ten minutes each.
Good five hours flew the balls, where the fun of this sport and the good mood had been paramount. But a certain ambition was not to be overlooked, which could be observed again and again during the ball exchanges.
Hilmar prinzbach and his hard-working helpers from the volleyball team provided exemplary tournament management, joining forces to "redirect" the tournament from the lawn to the sports hall without any problems.
Prinzbach also performed the award ceremony in the evening, where all teams received certificates and a bottle of sparkling wine, and the podium winners were treated to a hearty snack and a crate of beer.
The final ranking: 1. "The "lumberjacks 16 points, 2. "Larrys" 12, 3. "Hauptsach’ druber" 12, 4. "Ganseblumchen" 10, 5. "Hardwood" (last year’s winner) 8, 6. "Jader bull" 2.

“Merciless drama”: guardiola fails again

Pep guardiola sank to his knees. Unbelievable and disappointed, the star coach clasped his hands together over his head.

The most spectacular victory of the season was for manchester city in reality the bitterest defeat – also for the coach. Despite the 4:3 (3:2) against tottenham hotspur (first leg: 0:1) in the second leg of the champions league quarterfinals, the spanish player missed the preliminary round of the royal league for the third time in a row with the english soccer champions. "This is hard, this is cruel," lamented guardiola after the memorable evening, "but we have to accept this."

The british press already celebrated the breathtaking seven-goal smash as a classic. "Mad, barmy, brilliant," the telegraph headlined, BBC sport called it "a ruthless drama," and the times wrote: "spurs and VAR destroy city’s dream of four titles."

Black night for gladbach’s de jong

Black night for gladbach's de jong

"That was a terrible evening," declared borussia monchengladbach’s dutch center forward after his botched comeback to the international stage. Borussia’s most expensive new acquisition had promised a goal before the first leg of the playoff against dynamo kiev – and in the end he scored into his own goal to make the final score 1:3 (1:2) – probably the end of all dreams of the champions league.

This means that last season’s bundesliga runners-up will go into next wednesday’s playoff almost without a chance and would be only the fourth german club to miss out on the group stage of the european league in the qualifiers or playoffs. Of course, no one wanted to write off the ruck game yet. "I’ve also seen a team win 5-0 away from home. We have the quality to score three goals, even in kiev," said borussia professional mike hanke.

However, the new gladbach team lacks offensive strength. The high tempo, the accuracy of fit and the element of surprise – all gone. "Our strikers are all too similar," lamented coach lucien favre. "They all stay in the center, can’t find the right position. The right mix is missing. Last season we played with almost no forwards and found efficiency," said the coach, who admittedly knew before the season what offensive strengths were available to him.

Buttenabend in schonderling

Buttenabend in schonderling

Lena brand was quite excited when it finally became "serious" on saturday evening: the eight-year-old had been invited as a "wild party girl" her first official appearance at the buttenabend in schonderling. Already an hour and a half before they sab with the other "girls" in the youth group room of the sport home, make-up and hair was done. "Since november, we have been working with the girls once a week", says birgit muller, who rehearsed the dance together with daniela brand. And while matthias schaab and felix dorn seem to bury the audience on the stage of the sports center in a relaxed and light manner in the crowded hall, the "wild girls" bounce in the stairwell nervously from one fub to the other.

And then – finally – the time has come: the stage is set for the "wild party girls". Armed with balloons, the young ladies dance in to the tune of "99 luftballons" they dance their choreography, not quite flawless, of course, the excitement, nevertheless: applause and shouts of approval are sure for them. A FSV-order for all, lena brand is enthusiastic: "it glitters already" – and it is her first award.

Gerhard morber, who has already won several FSV medals with his witty thoughts and in a quirky "seppl outfit", is the most successful member of the FSV ruthlessly examines what happens in the big and small world on a daily basis – or what is missed. He is a firm coarse at the buttenabend, how many orders he already has, he can not say at first go.
Felix dorn, who made his debut as a sovereign moderator, had an experienced "colleague" at his side in the form of matthias schaab. Schaab, who has been a cabaret artist at FSV for years and shows what acting talent and linguistic talent he has in him, once again convinced the audience with his pointed, effortless and light-hearted introductions. In the last few days and weeks, he has spent unpaid hours writing announcements, fine-tuning them in terms of language and content, preparing for the individual program points and making last-minute changes.

Vc eltmann is surprised by the last team in the league

Vc eltmann is surprised by the last team in the league

At the meeting in upper bavaria, the host had an almost perfect day. The VCE never really got into the game. VC eschenbacher eltmann actually wanted to extend its winning streak in the match against TSV muhldorf, which has been winless so far, in order to establish a good starting position before the direct duels against schwaig and deggendorf. This did not succeed against a host that suddenly played as if liberated, put the VCE under pressure the entire playing time and never let up.

Muhldorf defense grows beyond itself

After an arduous journey, the VC eschenbacher eltmann team had a little less time than usual to prepare for the match, but every player seemed physically fit for the start of the game. From the kick-off, however, muhldorf showed a performance that completely contradicted the previous performances in the volleyball regional league. Muhldorf impressed with strong serving and seemed to have a "golden day" in the defense around leonhard tille, the brother of national team libero ferdinand to have caught. Hardly an attack ball of the VCE came directly on the ground, muhldorf scratched out the balls in partly impossible situations and then also concluded the game with powerful attack shots. On the other hand, the eltmanners also failed to win such games. The description of the first sentence fits almost all three sections of the game.
