Royal Leopold are still waiting for their first win of the Belgian league campaign as they drew 3-3 with La Gantoise on day two of the new season.

French international Gaspard Baumgarten (pictured) gave them an 11th minute lead but the Ghent side equalised before half-time from their first corner from Leandro Tolini’s penalty corner drag.

Alan Sothern made it two goals in two games following an attack down the right but Leo fought back to lead for a second time via Kane Russell’s corner and a Tanguy Zimmer goal. But Tolini had the last laugh, making it 3-3 from a corner.

No further goals meant Leo sit on one point out of six thus far as they continue preparations for EHL ROUND1 in Barcelona next month.

Dragons won their derby with Antwerp 3-1, quickly over-turning an early deficit through two goals from Henri Raes and a clincher from Shane O’Donoghue.

The Waterloo Ducks, meanwhile, hammered Daring 7-2 with William Ghislain having another good weekend with the first two goals.

Braxgata held Racing Club de Bruxelles to a 1-1 draw, Tobias Biekens and Victor Wegnez scoring the respective goals. Herakles beat White Star 5-1 with Nick Haig’s first-half double leading the line. Oree drew 2-2 with Beerschot.
