Soccer – ACV Women won their home game against DTS’35 Ede today. Despite putting pressure on their backside in the final minutes, ACV managed to increase their lead going into the final stretch of the match and win 3-1.
ACV is eighth in the Premier Division with 14 points from 11 games and has two points less than DTS’35. FC Eindhoven is the leader with 25 points.
“We saw in advance that it is a good team with a lot of experience in the top flight, but also a team that has had a few slip-ups this season,” says coach Sven Kroll. His team quickly realized how Ede’s team wanted to pressure him and he managed to play free players several times. Thirty minutes later, Assen’s team managed to take the lead. Lisanne Dik managed to pass the opponent and hit the ball hard.
“The way we played is the way we want to play,” Kroll says. In the final minutes of the first half it almost became 2-0, but the ball hit the crossbar, so that ACV went into the break with a 1-0 lead.
In the second half, ACV started well and quickly took a 2-0 lead. “You can compare it to the goal Holland scored against America. We went past that on the left and after a good cross Marlene Pinker was able to kick the ball into the net.” Shortly thereafter, Assen didn’t handle the ball properly and DTS’35 managed to chip the ball over the Asser goalkeeper into the goal and make it 2-1.
“The last half hour was tough and they got dangerous a few times,” Kroll continues. However, ACV managed to win a one-on-one duel in the last minute and score the third goal (3-1). “We’ve been developing well lately, and with this win we’re giving ourselves space compared to other teams,” Kroll concludes cheerfully.
