Match report

Timm Herzbruch put in a glorious performance to propel Uhlenhorst Mulheim to a famous KO16 win over HC Oranje Rood, going through to a KO8 date with Mannheimer HC.

His thunderous 51st minute strike crowned a superb performance for the German champions with the hosts bowing out of the competition.

In a thrilling opening, Herzbruch’s reverse drew a great save from Pirmin Blaak but the ball fell only as far as Jan Schiffer who scooped up the rebound for 1-0 in the third minute.

Goalkeeper Jonas Weissner kept it that way in the face of Rashid Mehmood’s powerful strike with an incredibly agile double-stop as the game raced from end to end.

Mink van der Weerden did equalise in the second quarter with a drag-flick from play, the ball falling kindly to him at the top of the circle and he whipped it from outside to just inside the D and into the goal.

It came just moments after van der Weerden had brilliantly cleared off the goal line and could have been a pivotal moment in the match.

Herzbruch, though, continued to take centre-stage and he hit the turbo button in the second half with a 70-metre run that eventually saw the ball fall back to him after Niklas Bosserhoff’s shot to clip home for 2-1.

Bob de Voogd levelled the game for a second time when he managed to reel in Rob van der Horst’s crash ball, turning quickly and then scoring on his reverse with a moment of true class.

But, with nine minutes to go, Herzbruch was at it again as his speed saw him turn two defenders and find some space to shoot, his rocket beating Pirmin Blaak before he had time to react.

They looked to be holding on comfortably for the result until Oranje-Rood won a corner with 24 seconds to go. Van der Weerden’s drag was charged down but the ball fell to his backhand which he hit with real purpose at the bottom corner but Tobias Matania was waiting to bat away off the line, raising his hands to the crowd to celebrate.

“It’s always intense in the EHL. We played with a great structure," Herzbruch said afterwards. "The atmosphere was fantastic and we had a few hundred fans who came here from Mulheim!

“The next two days we have to regenerate for our German battle with Mannheim. We know them very well from the Bundesliga and let’s see what happens!”
