ADO ladies were dumped out of the KNVB Beker (Cup) on Saturday after losing on penalties to sc Buitenveldert, thus ending the dream of a hattrick of cup wins.
ADO started the game strongly and after plenty of pressure they took a deserved lead. A cross from Lisanne Grimberg was turned in by the alert Kitty Susan 0-1.
The game ebbed and flowed as each team looked for a goal that would either make the game secure or prevent a loss.
Disaster struck the ADO ladies, there has been a recurring nightmare scenario of late, conceding very late goals, This game was the same, in the ninety second minute Frederique Bonink beat Barbara Lorsheyd in the ADO goal, ADO heads dropped 1-1.
There was no thirty minutes of extra time to be played, the game went straight to the dreasded penalty shoot out. The outcome being that the ADO ladies went out losing the penalty lottery 4-3. The ladies were distraught and the pain clear to see.
Team: Barbara Lorsheyd, Marleen Joore (82. Hélène Heemskerk), Kim Dolstra, Paola van der Veen, Lucienne Reichardt, Tessa Oudejans, Lisanne Grimberg, Tula de Wit (79. Jill Wilmot), Kitty Susan, Daphne in ’t Veld, Anne-Sophie Bakker (59. Renate Jansen)
