14th May 2016: The EHCCC 2016 officially kicked off at the grounds of SCHC in Bilthoven.
At 1:15 pm UHC Hamburg started by beating Surbiton 6-0.
After that, Club de Campo Villa de Madrid defeated Pegasus 5-0.
Game 3 saw Den Bosch with a 7-0 win against CSP Krylatskoye.
In the last match title defending host SCHC advanced to the semi final, thanks to a 6-0 win over Canterbury.
The weather was great on this spring day, with temperatures around 25 degrees celsius. Later this weekend it will get colder with a chance of rain, but let’s not focus on that.
Another tasty aspect of the day was the barbecue stand. Everyone could enjoy some delicious meat or a healthy salad. And yes, kroketten and frikandellen we’re also amongst the options.
Tomorrow SCHC will play UHC Hamburg for a place in the final. Den Bosch faces Club de Campo Villa de Madrid. Matches start from 2 pm.
Proving that this is really a family sport and a day out for the fans there is a nice side activity for kids tomorrow! They get the opportunity to make their very own banner supporting their favourite team.
