THW Kiel got their season off to a winning start with a 29:26 (14:14) victory over fellow northerners SG Flensburg-Handewitt in the DKB Super Cup.
It was a pretty even match, if a little scrappy in parts, but Kiel established a three-goal cushion midway through the second half that Flensburg could not overcome. The boys in Hummel had a chance at 27:26 with 2 minutes left but missed – and an immediate fast-break killed the game. A further Kiel goal right at the end gave the impression of total domination that was not really reflective of the match.
