Dutch hockey players also beat Belgium in their second match in the professional league. Head coach Alison Annan’s side trailed 1-0 halfway, but turned the difference in the third quarter. The score was 3-1 at the Wagner Stadium in Amstelveen.
Stephanie van den Bury gave Belgium the lead after just over fifteen minutes from the penalty spot and because the orange wasn’t convincing in the first half, Dutch coach Raul Erin’s side could already dream up a stunt.
Soon after the break, Holland quickly put things in order. Joosje Burg made it 1-1 from close range in the 33rd minute and shortly thereafter Freeke Moes gave Orange the lead with a backhand. He then served Moise Ledwig Welten and after 38 minutes the Netherlands already had a difference of two. In the remainder, the Olympic champion, who again took up his position without a number of fixed values, no longer had problems.
A flaw in the evening was captain Eva de Guede, who left the field in the second quarter, with a knee injury.
A month ago, the Orange team opened the season in Amstelveen against Belgium. Then the score became 2-0.
