Easy win for Bloemendaal against Schaerweijde. Floris Vordelboer looks forward to the ‘other orange’ color

On Sunday, November 13, Blumenthal awaits a home clash against Den Bosch, against which they had a draw earlier this season (2-2). The competition will then be suspended until March 5, 2023, when coach Rick Mathijsen’s side will resume competition in and against Rotterdam.

Meanwhile, international players playing in Bloemendal are active on the global hockey scene, including Arthur van Doren, who has been selected for Belgium.

In December, the Dutch team in Argentina will play twice against Great Britain and twice against the host country for the Pro League. And from January 13 to 29, the World Cup will be held in Bhubaneswar and Rourkela, India. There, the Orange first meet New Zealand, Malaysia and Chile in the group stage.

Bloemendalers Maurits Visser, Teun Beins, Thierry and Jasper Brinkman, Floris Wortelboer, Jorrit Croon, Dennis Warmerdam and Tim Swaen have made the national team. In mid-November, national coach Jeroen Delmy will tell if the eight can actually pack their packed suitcases.

“I’m very calm about it,” said Wortelboer (26), who made his Orange debut in 2017 and has now played seventy international matches but has missed major matches in recent years due to shoulder injuries.

“I definitely have a healthy amount of tension. But I think that continuing to work on it would cost me the quality of my game. I don’t suffer from nerves. I sleep well and hope I will come.

Blumenthal, missing Sam Fick (shoulder injury) in addition to Arthur van Doren, overwhelmed the visitors with solid hockey in the first two quarters.

After Dennis Warmerdam first tested the qualities of Schaerweijde goalie Jan de Wijkerslooth, Casper van der Veen finished off a delicate rush by Floris van der Kroon moments later. In the final minute of the first quarter, Roel Bovendierd lay on his stomach and tipped the ball over after a good move from Jorid Kroon.

At the start of the second quarter, Thierry Brinkmann scored and the game was over. Until the final horn, Blumenthal was still dominating, De Wijgersloot blocked a dozen goals, it seemed certain, and the guests were allowed to realize the goal of honor from time to time. It didn’t come and the final score was 3-0.

“Today is not really easy. Schaerweijde is a good team”, then analyzed Floris Wortelboer. ,, We sank a little after the break. But there are three points, that’s the most important thing.” After that the ‘other orange’ came back into view. ,, I’m in good shape, I did everything I could to be there. I can’t do anything else.”
