JUPILER LEAGUE REPORT: Week 31 – Friday 12th April


FC Volendam defeated championship rivals Helmond Sport 3-0 on Friday night to pull away by three points at the top, as Sparta could fail to capitalise and had a goal-less draw at home to Fortuna to stay in third position.

Volendam celebrate Brandley Kuwas’ opener

Even though it was built to be one of the most important games of the season, Helmond Sport left their game on the team bus as Volendam easily brushed past the visitors to head to the summit of the Jupiler League.  The goals started flowing on 19 minutes with winger Brandley Kuwas grabbing with a great effort from the edge of the penalty area. League top scorer Jack Tuyp  notched another goal to double the margin on 57 minutes and Michiel Kramer (second in the top scorer stakes) made the points certain, if they were not already, two minutes to go.

The league went goal crazy, as there was a seven-goal thriller in Maastricht as Dordrecht defeated MVV by five goals to two. Five goals were seen in Eindhoven as FC Eindhoven pulled out a 4-1 win against FC Emmen.
