M Grambusch) UHC Hamburg 3 (M Fürste, J Fürste)
Rot Weiss Köln won a simply stunning all-German
tussle with Marco Miltkau scoring a hat trick in their 5-3 victory in the
second KO16 game.
Rot Weiss got off to the dream start with Christopher Rühr
in glorious form, playing on the pass for Marc Miltkau to score a glorious
first goal. Rühr doubled the lead in the fifth with an impudent finish on
the run for 2-0 but any chance this would an easy tie was wiped out quickly.
Florian Fuchs, with an audacious turn off the baseline,
pulled one back for UHC barely a minute later. Mats Grambusch and Moritz Fürste
traded goals to move the half-time score up to 3-2 in Rot Weiss’s favour.
Miltkau’s brilliant second goal on the backhand extended the
lead to 4-2 but, once again, UHC responded with Jonas Fürste with a mid circle bunt.
Miltkau completed his hat trick in the 46th minute when Rühr,
once again, placed a perfect cross into his path and the forward touched home
at the near post.And they held that lead in a frantic final quarter, eliminating three time champions UHC and advancing to a KO8 date with either SV Kampong or Racing Club de France.
