Den Bosch too strong for Pegasus in women’s KO8


Den Bosch 9 (F Matla 5, P van der Plas 2, J Burg, L Welten) Pegasus 0

Title holders Den Bosch proved far too strong for Irish newcomers Pegasus as Frédérique Matla ran riot in the first half, putting them through to the FINAL4, as the striker scored five in the end.

After some initial strong resistance, Matla broke the deadlock in the 12th minute when she turned in from close range, starting a run of four goals in three minutes. 

Joosje Burg added the next with a calm finish from the top of the circle and Lidewij Welten touched in the next. Matla’s direct corner put made it 4-0 at the end of the first quarter.

Pleun van der Plas added a fifth before Matla netted her third and fourth goals from set plays, a stroke and a corner. Van der Plas and Matla stretched the lead 9-0 in the third quarter.
