Hamburgs C-Team player Tim BraumannLast sunday, 5th of April, the third men´s team of the HTHC Hamburg Warriors had the looked-for game against the “SG Goettingen und Kassel “. All players were highly motivated and determined to get the three point out of the game. Both teams were accompaniend by several fans which made the whole atmosphere hot tempered.

The C-Team had nothing to loose and played with 14 players on the roster.

The initial phase went sluggish forward and both teams had difficulties to come into the game.
But in the second quarter, the C-team of Hamburg broke the ice and scored three goals. However, the SG Goettingen und Kassel had also a working offense, so the score after the third quarter was 4-3.

In the last quarter, Hamburg played with a solide defense and finished it with no goal against, admittedly nor the own offense scored a goal either.

With this game, the third men´s team of the HTHC Hamburg Warriors won their first game since their establishment.

The Ruhr-Area is one of the biggest economical areas in Germany. Until today we missed a Lacrosse-Team and so some player of the Duesseldorf Antlers are planning to build up a new team in this Area. For some weeks now, they played in the mud near the Gruga-Parc in Essen, but it is time for a change. Right now, there are two clubs which want to give a new home to the team. The next few weeks will tell, what will happen to the “Ruhrpott Pirates”.

The DLAXV German Championships of Lacrosse 2009 are going to take place in Goettingen, a university town located right in the middle of Germany. From June, 5th to 7th the best male, female and youth lacrosse players from all over the country are meeting in order to compete for the most important title of German Lacrosse.

After last years’ tournament has been set in the Warsteiner DHB Official Hockey Stadium in Moenchengladbach, the DLAXV German Championships 2009 are going to be held in the excellent environment of the newly renovated Jahn Stadium. With a canopied grandstand having a capacity of 5.000 seats and holding space for 20.000 viewers in total the Jahn Stadium is an established and very popular venue for Open Air Concerts and international sport events. The best twelve German lacrosse teams will compete on three playing fields, two made of natural and one of artificial turf, which allows the men’s, women’s and youth teams to play all at the same time.

After hard and very close final matches in last years’ tournament the HTHC Hamburg Warriors were the lucky winners, carrying home all three cups for Germany’s best men’s, women’s and youth lacrosse team. If they are able to repeat their triple once again cannot be said so far but it is clear that all the other teams are going to do anything to stop them.

Germany Lacrosse

In the Western German Lacrosse League the second half of the season started with a highlight. On the 14th of March the Duesseldorf Antlers, ranked place 2, hosted the fourth ranked Cologne Indians.

Under floodlight at the Duesseldorfer Sport-Club 1899 facility, the home team had the better start.

The third quarter shootout started with the German National Player Florian Kriependorf who scored the 1-0.

Until the 4. Quarter the Antlers overran the guest form the “Domstadt” and put a 10-0 on the scoreboard. With goals from national team players Lorenz Lehmhaus, Sebastian Trischler and Dominique Nebreklijevic.

With the start of the last quarter the Antlers shifted one gear back and let the Indians get better into the game. They used the chance and scored twice, before the Antlers finished the great derby with 2 goals by Ansgar Schaefersbirken.

The Antlers will now host on the 28th of march the unranked Marburg Saints. Only 4 games left until the Antlers will be participate second time in the row on the German Championship Playoffs

German Women's National Tryouts9

Post by: Jakob ~ da Goalie

Due to difficulties of the league planning, the Hamburg first men´s team had to play two games on the weekend 7th and 8th of march.

On Saturday, the Warriors had to play against the Kiel Lacrosse club on the home field of the Kiel´s men team. The Warriors played – despite the deficiency in the fine adjustment of the offense and defense – pretty concentrated and disciplined and won owing to exemplary team spirit and corporate feeling with a final score of 2-16.

On Sunday, the team around Kyle Hawkins showed once again that they are on the best way to become a solid unit. The little problems from the previous day were basically gone and the attack reacted clever against the defense of Goettingen. In the meantime the defense had not much to do but played solidly through the game. Finally, the score was an impressive 18-0.

The first Men´s team of the HTHC Hamburg Warriors thank the players from Kiel, Goettingen and Kassel for a fair and penalty-less weekend and wish much success for the next games!

On Friday 20th of February 24 girls of the German National Team squad made their way to Amsterdam to have friendly games against the Dutch National Team.

Saturday started with intense practice and in the afternoon the teams were on the field for their first game this year. Both teams played hard but fair and the German team won 16-8.

For the game on Sunday the team had different guidelines to concentrate on. Great teamwork led to a 12-8 win.

It was a great weekend taking the the team one step closer to the World Cup in Prague.
