Before the kick-off there was a minutes silence in memory of those who died in last weeks terror attacks in Paris, a silence which was immaculately done.
ADO ladies started the game well, the only problem was that former ADO keeper Barbara Lorsheyd was in great form for Telstar. Maartje Looijen, Dominique Bruinenberg and Michelle Vrieling all forcing good saves from the keeper.
In the fourteenth minute ADO then shot themselves in the foot, despite being in charge of the game, they lost concentration at the back. Katja Snoeijs eventually taking advantage and heading home, 0-1.
ADO had one great outlet time and time again down the right wing. Looijen was making run after twisting run, never giving up on the ball despite the odds being against her. In the twenty fifth minute her efforts were rewarded. After again chasing a lost cause, she fought hard, slid in and stole the ball close to the corner flag, Her low cross into the box saw Nadine Fritschy get an unfortunate touch and put the ball into her own net, 1-1.
ADO went in at half-time 2-1 up after Pia Rijsdijk played the perfect ball through to Lineth Beerensteyn in the thirty seventh minute. In a straight forward one on one with Lorsheyd the ADO striker calmly slotted the ball into the back of goal.
The start of the second half saw the home side still dominating the game and after seven minutes got themselves two goals in front. After a bit of pin ball the ball fell nicely for Rijsdijk in space, her low shot easily beating the keeper to make it 3-1.
Just after the hour mark, ADO made a strange substitution, taking off ADO’s best player, Looijen. With the outlet gone, Telstar started to pick up, look dangerous and play some good, fast, passing football. The right flank release from defence was now gone and it showed.
ADO then lost two goals in quick succession. In the seventy fifth minute a shot hit Kim Dolstra, the deflection looping the ball over the wrong footed Jennifer Vreugdenhil in the ADO goal, 3-2. Just three minutes late Telstar were awarded a penalty kick. Hélène Heemskerk giving away the foul. Babiche Roof smashing the ball into the net from the spot, 3-3.
ADO then upped the tempo again creating several chances and earning numerous free-kicks and corners. Dominique Vugts coming closest to converting a chance.
In the final minute of the game ADO were awarded a free-kick on the right hand side. The ball was floated in and was going to be an easy catch for Lorsheyd. However Babiche Roof for some reason jumped across her. The ball knocked from the keepers hands and into the net, ADO snatching all three points in the final moments, unbelievable stuff, 4-3.
