Utrecht hockey teams face last minute surprises

Last updated 2 years ago by Jon Wilkins

SV Kampong had to wait till the final minutes to determine the outcome of both of this weekend’s matches

In Rotterdam, Philip Meulenbroek again scored the decisive goal just in time as Rotterdam made it 2-3 in the final minute, but the points went to the Utrecht men. Floris de Ridder at last returned to the side after eight months out because of injuries. A welcome return indeed.

Because the leaders Bloemendaal surprisingly lost to Tilburg, SV Kampong are now level at the top of the table divided only by goal difference.

The Ladies unfortunately went down in Amsterdam by a counter attack goal in the last minute against Hurley. The ladies stay in sixth place, but Hurley has closed the gap to seventh to just one point.

Next week, due to the Pro League international matches (including the Netherlands v. China game on April 10 at Kampong) there will be no competition programme in the Eredivisie.
