A better start from the guests of Italy brought four set-points and a comfortable leading position for the rest of this match. The team of ESC Am Bachtel answered with a good 3rd game, so they gained hope for the following matches 4 and 5. But today the Swissmen will not come into a run and all mistakes were used for the next italian points to win the match.

Match 2 :
SV Mühlhausen (GER) - RSU LEITERSDORF i.R. (AUT)
1 : 9
11:11 - 11:15 - 6:20 - 6:16 - 3:23 = 37 : 85
SV Mühlhausen had prepared a friendly welcome for the Styrian Vice Champion of Austria 2016, RSU Leitersdorf. The guests came with their actual best team; Franz Unger celebrated a sucessful comeback after his injury. Martin Laffer is member of the actual Austrian National Team. The first set ends 11-11 with one point for both teams. Leitersdorf had more experience in this mode of the game, and Mühlhausen was visibly nervous, perhaps also in cause of the media-hype with Live-Stream, Cameras, Interviews, and all surroundings within the first international competition. The following sets were won by the Austrians, but i am sure, that Mühlhausen has learned from mistakes for the next matches. Next weekend SV Mühlhausen goes to Brest in Belarus.
