SAINT ANTHONIS | DSV has taken the first points of the season from leader Bruheze. The PhD student from Sint Anthonis drew 2-2 on his own field. “We have shown that we belong in the third division,” says DSV coach Thijs Goossens.
Bruheze had won the previous five matches (convincingly), but found a well-prepared opponent in DSV. “They play their home games on artificial grass and clearly had to get used to the tough field conditions. We knew that and we had adjusted our tactics accordingly,” Goossens explains. This resulted in two giant chances in the opening phase. In the end, DSV struck ‘only’ twice before halftime: Hein Vloet and Stijn van den Broek made it 2-0 at halftime. “But that could also have been 3-0 or 4-0,” Goossens knows.
Bruheze came on strong after tea and halfway through the second act the Helmonders came alongside: 2-2. “After that it was a matter of survival. We fought for a result and were able to get the draw.”
Despite the great performance, Goossens had mixed feelings about the ‘draw’ with Bruheze. “We could have killed the game before half time and we failed to do so. After the break, however, we only followed Bruheze. We must be that honest. We can be proud of this achievement,” concludes Goossens, who will prepare his team for the derby against Excellent, which did not take action. The Oploon team’s match against FCV-Venlo was canceled and has been rescheduled for Thursday, November 16.
