Leon van Barneveld stunned AH&BC Amsterdam with an equalising goal in the last 30 seconds of the Dutch indoor final, paving the way to end Amsterdam’s hopes of a fifth successive title.

It earned a 2-2 draw for SCHC and the Bilthoven side then went on to win a shoot-out to take the victory, leaving the capital side to rue their missed chance.

Earlier on, Wiegert Schut had given the highly decorated Amsterdam a 13th minute lead which Bram Weers replied to, making it 1-1 at half-time.

Boris Burkhardt put Amsterdam back in front with a goal that looked likely to have settled the game for a long period but SCHC kept fighting and got their equaliser.

From there, Thijs van Pelt, Max Sweering and Weers all scored their shoot-out while indoor legend Robert Tigges – again voted the best indoor player in the Netherlands – surprisingly missed to hand SCHC the glory.

HC Oranje-Rood, meanwhile, were the bronze medal winners from the competition.
