Amsterdam cruised into the KO16 with confident display
against Saint Germain, winning 4-0 to top Round 1 Pool A with something to spare.
Saint Germain’s defence meant that it was never likely to be
a similar scoreline to Saturday’s 19-2 rout over Pomorzanin Torun but they
existed only on scraps of attack as the Dutch giants always had the key cards
in the deck.
It took just two and a half minutes to get the scoreboard
ticking from a quite brilliant counter-attack, Sander ’t Hart diving onto a
first time pass from the left wing.
Saint Germain, though, did well to parry a wave of attacks
with Billy Bakker, Kenny Bain and Robert Tigges all denied from major chances.
Valentin Verga, though, extinguished hopes of a Saint
Germain surprise when he finished off a backhand chance from the left of the
circle and then converted a penalty stroke for 3-0. ’t Hart grabbed the fourth
goal with five minutes to go to close out the win.
