Solly Williams provided once again the story line for Friday when the teams completed the remaining three rounds. He had mentioned during yesterday's update that he remembered the first time the two teams competed for the German national 4way title in 2005.
EADS was the reigning champion by then, and Paratec-Saar, competing under FSC Remscheid by then, was the new and young challenger. Solly Williams was correct with his recollection. One team was up by one point going into Round 10 in 2005. It was also the reigning champion by then, EADS, who eventually defended the title successfully - for the last time.

Both teams had different lineups in 2005. Three original Paratec-Saar members (Joern Thiele, Markus Bastuck, Dieter Schwarz) competed with Petra Van Overveld this week, who replaced original Point Max Thiele. Only two EADS members of 2005 (Olaf Biederman, Goeran Meyer) had Thomas Mack and Christian Schaefer in their 2013 lineup.
Even the team in 3rd place is almost the same as it was in 2005. Uli Sehrbrock and Henning Stumpp competed for X-Ray Remscheid in 2005, together with Steffen Schiedeck and Uwe Soppa. Petra Stumpp and Janine Tillenburg are now Gamma Ray members and posted a higher average than in 2005 in this lineup's first year. It was the first German bronze medal for the team's new Point, Janine Tillenburg, as well as it was the second 4way gold medal for Petra Van Overveld. Paratec-Saar and EADS also won the German 8way gold medals together.
