The narrow victory in Stuttgart was three weeks ago. Three weeks that the Razorbacks could use to regenerate after their tough debut in the SharkWater GFL. After all, the boys from the tower city had five games in a row in their first season in the first division. It is all the more remarkable that after the half of the season the Ravensburger found themselves in third place in the table.
On Saturday July 31st, 2021, it is now time to confirm the good impression from the first half of the season against the playoff candidates from Kempten in the southern German derby. The Allgäu Comets have only played three games so far and were able to win against both Marburg and Munich. Only in their last game against the Saarland Hurricanes could the Comets not win and are currently in fifth place in the table.
“We haven’t seen that much of the Comets yet. But in their first three games they always showed a strong defense performance. ”Coach Steven pays tribute to the Allgäuers. With a maximum of 17 points, the Comets defense allowed very few points and especially their running defense always knew how to stop the opposing offense. Only the current leaders from Schwäbisch Hall have an even better defense. “We have already shown in the last few games that we can find solutions and that we are successful. We will also succeed against the defense from Kempten, ”says coach Stevens optimistically.
In any case, the right framework will be provided. Just in time for the IFM Saturday Night Game, the Corona requirements can be expected to be relaxed, so that more than 1000 spectators can come to the Lindenhof Stadium. In addition, the event team around Alexander Seyfried can slowly expand its accompanying program again, so that nothing stands in the way of a successful game day.
In addition to the actual game day, the Ravensburg Razorbacks also offer an opportunity for all those who want to play for the Ravensburger in the SharkWater GFL.
