#13 IS LUCKY FOR SOME!

Dutch international Maartje's golden goal short secures Den Bosch's 13th championship

Den Bosch took  their 13th Hoofdklasse league championship trophy in 14 years courtesy of a golden goal in extra time through a penalty corner from Maartje Paumen

Weike Dijkstra's confidence that Laren could force a third game decider was sadly misplaced

Laren started the game a lot stronger than last Sunday, and thus got  an early goal from work by Wieke Dijkstra and Julia Müller and Kim Lammers controlling the ball cleverly and then calmly tapping it  in to put Laren one up on six minutes. Den Bosch got nothing in the first half despite having three penalty corners.

Dutch international Kim Lammers gave Laren the early lead.

Den Bosch took  control in the second half with Laren  constantly with their backs to the wall. Laren was unable to do much more than stop their opponents scoring. By sheer will willpower and fighting spirit Laren hung on to avoid the walkover but striker Sabine Mol, three minutes from the end of normal time found the net and forced extra time.

It fell to renowned drag flick specialist Maartje Paumen to bury a penalty corner in the fifth minute of extra time givIng  Den Bosch the golden goal and the win. Laren can still take revenge, because both teams are facing each other again Friday, June 10, but in the ECCC at HCG and one of them will face either slough or Leicester
