Den Bosch in touching distance of regular season title

Den Bosch hold all the aces going into the final round of the women’s regular Hoofdklasse season following their 1-1 draw with AH&BC Amsterdam last weekend.

It means they have a two-point advantage over chasers SCHC who are the only side who can now catch them in this race.

Michelle Fillet did give Amsterdam a dream start when she finished off a pitch-length move in the second minute of the contest.

Frédérique Matla, however, equalised in the second quarter and despite some huge chances at either end, neither side could find a winner, meaning a share of the spoils.

SCHC, therefore, kept their interest in the title alive when they eased to a 6-1 win over hdm with Ginella Zerbo scoring a hat trick, adding to a double from Yibbi Jansen.

And the quartet of playoff contenders was completed by SV Kampong who got the best of Pinoké 3-1 with Luna Fokke’s pair of penalty corners giving them daylight at half-time.

Anouk Stam pulled one back but a Noor van den Nieuwenhof goal made the result safe, leaving Pinoké seven points back in fifth spot.

The regular season concludes on Sunday afternoon with Den Bosch facing 11th-placed Tilburg knowing a win will assure them the title.

Otherwise, a door could open for SCHC who must win against Kampong if they are to have any chance of landing the title.
