Jim van de Venne’s hat trick saw HC Oranje-Rood score a ranking match victory over a Dinamo Kazan side who battled hard but were not able to bridge the gap in class.
It was not the tie the hosts were hoping for after Wednesday’s KO16 defeat but they stuck to their task to serve up an entertaining contests.
Teun Beins put the Eindhoven club in front with just 30 seconds gone when his intended cross took a defensive touch by the defences of goalkeeper Marat Gafarov.
The response was immediate with Abu Bakar Mahmood slapping in from close range after Linar Fattakhov battled his way into the circle.
In a lively opening, van de Venne then made it 2-1 in the seventh minute, turning in Lucas Martinez’s ball in. Van de Venne finished off from Benjamin Stanzl’s cross after Beins lovely backhand pass to the baseline.
Ali Shan walloped in a second for Kazan to reduce the gap to 3-2 with four minutes to go in the first half but a Mink van der Weerden bullet restored the two-goal cushion.
Van de Venne completed his treble in the second half when he exchanged passes with Bob de Voogd and popped home the goal. Van der Weerden scored another drag-flick to close out the 6-2 win.
