Heffingen Beats T71 In The Cup

Wat e verréckten Owend! Eiser Härenequipe ass et gelongen den T71 aus der Coupe ze eliminéieren. Mir hu schonns an der éischter Halschent gewisen, datt mir gewëllt waren ze gewannen. Mir sinn zwar mat 10 Punkten Avance gestart (well mir an der National 2 spillen), mee eis Jonge woussten, datt no 5 gewonnene Matcher hannerteneen alles méiglech wär. Sou si mir richteg gutt an de Match komm a konnte mat engem Score vun 58-47 an d’Paus goen. Den 3.Véierel war zimlech sauer fir eis: mir hunn vill Feeler gepaff kritt an den Nelly ass ausgewiesselt ginn, well hie schonns 4 perséinlech Fouls hat. Déi Chance huet den T71 natierlech genotzt an huet d’Féierung iwwerholl. Deemno stoung et zum Schluss vum 3. Véierel 70-77. Mat nach just engem auslännesche Spiller op Hiefenecher Säit, ass et dem T71 am 4. Véierel gelongen hir Avance weider auszebauen. Awer eis Jongen hunn zu kengem Ament opginn; si hunn weider gekämpft a sinn erëm erukomm. Den T71 huet zum Schluss nach e Schoss verpasst a sou ass et zu enger Verlängerung komm. An der Verlängerung huet d’Féierung ëmmer erëm tëschent deenen 2 Equippe gewiesselt. 3 Sekonne viru Schluss stoung et 103-102. Den T71 huet bäi sengem leschte Schoss de Kuerf verfeelt, mam Resultat datt mir gewonnen hunn. Et war e richtege Basketskrimi! Eis Jongen hunn duerch hir virbildlech Teamaarbecht an hire Kampfgeescht dëst Spill gewonnen! Mir freeën eis op d’Véierelsfinall!

 

Crazy night yesterday as our Men’s team managed to knock T71 Dudelange out from the Cup! With a 10 point starting lead due to the fact Heffingen is in Nationale 2 and with our Men’s team going through a good moment with 5 straight wins, the guys knew it wouldn’t be impossible to get away from this game with a win and that was proven during the first half with Heffingen going to halftime leading 58-47. On the third quarter, things got complicated with a series of fouls being called against USH which resulted on Nelly’s getting foul trouble and consequently subbed out at the half of the quarter, allowing T71 to take the lead. At the end of the third quarter, the score was 70-77. With Heffingen down to one foreign player on the court, T71 managed to enlarge the score gap to double digits on the fourth quarter but Heffingen never gave up the game and kept fighting managing to get back on the game and tying the score with less than 2 minutes to play. T71 would end up to miss the last second shot and the game went to over time. The score kept close during over time, with both teams alternating the lead. With 3 seconds on the clock, Heffingen was leading 103-102 with T71 still having a chance to score off a baseline inbound on our halfcourt from which the outsiders still managed to have a good look to shoot from the three point line but that ended up not going in, resulting in Heffingen’s win. Great game and even greater team effort from our guys on this big win! We are on the Quarter Finals!
