The rooks beat the table runner-up and defending champion 90:75 (49:50). And after the fourth win in a row, we ticked off the topic of relegation.

“I’m extremely proud of my players,” said Calles. “Most of the time you lose to Alba and Aito and learn. Today we won and I still learned. I am extremely happy. “

In addition to the three long-term injuries, the ailing Captain Bryce Taylor (34) was surprisingly missing against his ex-team.
