Endgame

BSG Motor Rostock – BSG Motor Eisenach 25:17

(February 26, 1956)

Outsider Motor Eisenach began the game with consistent man marking, which initially inhibited the Rostock's flow of play. When the defending champion went 4-2 in the front, the Thuringians switched to a four-bar, but couldn't get the opposing attackers under control. Before the break, Rostock suddenly changed tactics and withdrew. The now running Eisenach fell into the set trap, because now the North Germans made their goals with counter-attacks. At the break, the defending champion had already thrown out a 15: 7 lead. After the break, the Thuringia fought worthy of recognition, but were not up to the technical-tactical game of the opponent, who quickly increased his goal lead to ten goals.

Endgame

SC Dynamo Berlin - BSG Lok Magdeburg Süd-Ost 14:10

(October 21, 1956 in Gera )

The SC Dynamo went into the final as the clear favorite. The Berliner had dominated their season without losing points, while the BSG Lok had to accept two defeats in the league games and were also handicapped by the fact that they had to play significantly more games than the Berliners in the past weeks due to the disordered schedule. From the very beginning a combat-oriented game developed, which was sometimes exaggerated by the Magdeburg team. In addition, the game suffered from the poor performance of the Leipzig referee Schuffenhauer, who discriminated against Magdeburg with wrong decisions in the early stages. As a result, they lost the lead they deserved in the first half. Dynamo players initially showed a surprising weakness in throwing. After Magdeburg's Bahra had to leave the field for five minutes due to a gross foul and a penalty throw by his teammate Schulze was not recognized, the Berliners were able to go into the break with a narrow 6: 5 lead. With goals from Diedering and Mannewitz, Dynamo was able to expand the lead to 8: 5 and now played the greater throwing power and better condition. Magdeburg was able to shorten the deficit in the final minutes, but in the end the team lost with a four-point difference. 5 and now played the greater casting power and better condition. Magdeburg was able to shorten the deficit in the final minutes, but in the end the team lost with a four-point difference. 5 and now played the greater casting power and better condition.

Endgame

SC progress Weissenfels - SC Lok Leipzig 3: 7

(October 21, 1956 in Gera)

In the women's field finals, the Weißenfels players were favored because of their two championships from 1954 and 1955, the Leipzig team was only given outsider opportunities because of their five selection players. Contrary to the prognoses, the Leipzig women took over the initiative from the start and bought the opponents the guts with an offensive cover. While the Weißenfels combination game did not unfold as a result, the Leipzig women played their good technical ability and throwing power, so that they ended the first half with a clear 4: 1 lead. In the second half of the game, the Lok players dominated thanks to their better ball handling and a united team performance. Since her opponents acted tired and indecisive, their leadership was never compromised. After an interim 6: 2, the decision had already been made in favor of the SC Lok, especially since the Weißenfelser were dismantling more and more. The surprising 7: 3 final result ultimately corresponded exactly to the course of the game.

Weißenfels: Martina Maudrich - Kühn, Noth - Brandt, Baumert, Dietz - Inge Schanding, Häuber (1), Erika Quarg (2), Müller, Inge Jahn - (Kloß, Lemnitzer)

Leipzig: Müller - Bergner, Gittel - Schreiter, Unger, Baldreich - Schmutzler (1), Papst, Eckert (4), Gerasch (1), Schmidt (1) - (Stephan, Heinze)

Referee: Prehn (Löcknitz)
