German championship has new victor!

On Sunday, 6 April 2013 the Club SG Pegasus Rommerscheid from the city of Bergisch Gladbach took over the crown from last year’s Champion Schweriner KC in the German korfball Championship.

An extra match became necessary after ending the regular competition on equal points and the final result went in the favour of Pegasus.

Two of the hardest working club teams stood in the final and  both teams deserve the right to represent Germany in the upcoming international competitions for clubs in Europe.

In the last match points were equal in the first half, before a 15-minute period where no goals were scored until Pegasus broke away to show supremacy and led to the 24-18 victory for the Rhineland area.

SG Pegasus Rommerscheid will proudly represent Germany in 2014 in Papendrecht (NED) at the IKF Europa Cup, Schweriner KC will fight for medals at the IKF Europa Shield tournament.
