Club Egara and SV Kampong reached the final of the ABN AMRO Junior EHL as they both went unbeaten in today’s preliminary phase of the competition.
Egara’s Under-14s topped the table with two wins and a draw, starting off with an impressive 3-0 success against UHC Hamburg, Jan Borras scoring twice from penalty corners while Jan Carreras also weighed in.
And they confirmed their final place with a 6-0 success against Dragons, Borras again scoring twice while Pau Broto netted a hat trick. Jan Clapes recorded the other goal.
It meant they were already through to the final by the time they play Kampong who needed a draw or better to join them in the decider. Hjalmar Voskuil’s penalty stroke gave the Dutch club a seventh minute lead but they were forced to endure some nervous times in the closing minutes after Pol Vilanova equalised.
But Kampong secured the 1-1 draw that saw them through ahead of Dragons. Those two sides had drawn 1-1 as well earlier in the day with Kampong’s Ivo Visser’s goal cancelled out by an immediate response from Tom Nobel.
Both sides went on to beat UHC Hamburg but it was Kampong’s vital draw with Egara that won them through to the final.
It will take place on the main pitch in the Wagener Stadium at 10.15am ahead of the weekend’s final two KO8 games. KHC Dragons and UHC Hamburg meet at 9am in the third/fourth place playoff.
The prize-giving will take place at 12pm with the winning team also being paraded to the crowd at half time of the KO8 match between Oranje Zwart and Harvestehuder THC.
