ADO had a great start as in the first minute Paola van der Veen fired home the first goal. Then the game became the Renate Jansen show. After twelve minutes her effort went close before Lisanne grimberg finished it off to make it 2-0.

Super striker Renate then got herself a hattrick in a twelve minute spell. Starting with a penalty after fifteen minutes. In the nineteenth minute a shot hit the crossbar and the referee said the ball had crossed the line. Then in the twenty seventh minute an easy chance to roll the ball into an empty net to make it 5-0.

That was it for the first half scoring. ould they take it easy in the second half? No was the answer. Lineth Beerensteyn scoring in the fifty eighth minute after showing off more of her individiual brilliance, 6-0.

ADO sign player from Go Ahead Eagles

Left sided midfielder Xander Houtkoop (25) has joined ADO Den Haag from Eredivisie side Go Ahead Eagles (GAE). The player already knew in January this year that a contract extension was not going to be signed and he wanted to look for a new challenge. He has now found that by joining the team of head coach Henk Fraser. Houtkoop played in all but one of Go Ahead Eagles games last season and had a choice of clubs to opt for at the end of the season. He signed a contract for two years with an option of an extra year at ADO Den Haag.

Xander Houtkoop was a young youth and D level player and was scouted for the youth of SC Heerenveen. A breakthrough never came; therefore in 2009/2010 he went on loan to FC Emmen.
