What a thrilling half final!!

Rio de Janeiro, 17 August 2016 – That was one exciting, exhilarating and nerve-wracking game! The Germans scored in the first quarter, and soon the Dutch followed. The rest of the game it stayed 1-1, with some chances for the Dutch, but also for the Germans. The Germans were tide in their defense and this resulted that the Dutch played chaotic. After the final whistle the end score was still 1-1. Shootouts. And Joyce Sombroek was the hero of the shootouts. Calm and confident she stopped ball after ball. It was up to Ellen Hoog to make the winning goal. And she did! With her signature backhand she scored the team to the finals!

Holland beats Argentina in Quarter final in Rio

Rio de Janeiro, 16 August 2016 – The Dutch hockey players have beaten Argentina in a very exciting and thrilling quarter final of the Olympics 2016. The team began the match well and were 3 goals ahead. In the 3rd quarter Argentina manage to score a goal and after three (dubious) yellow cards for the Dutch given by Belgian referee, it became difficult to hold the strong lead of 3-1. In the 4th quarter the Argentineans scored a second, but this was not enough as the end signal rang through the stadium and Holland won with 3-2. They will face Germany in the half finals on Wednesday.

We are especially happy for Ellen Hoog, who we represent as a player. Congrats dearest Ellen! Go get that 3rd Olympic medal!
