Four-star Léo win Belgian ranking derby

Royal Léopold won their Belgian derby to claim fifth spot overall from this season’s men’s EHL while Gantoise ended seventh after a 4-1 result.

Tom Boon’s deflected drag-flick in the first minute put Léo 1-0 up and he doubled up with a beautiful finish from Lewis Eaton’s diagonal ball into the centre.

And then Gaspard Baumgarten scored twice in the 75 seconds before half-time. The first was at the end of a pitch-length move, finishing with a spin move.

The French striker then tipped in a lovely ball through the middle from Corentin de Trez for a 4-0 half-time lead.

Timothée Clément pulled one back in the second half but Léopold stayed well clear for the remainder of the contest.
