Despite a solid, strong performance away at Ajax, ADO ladies could not deny the Amsterdam side from becoming the league champions for the first time.
The home side took the lead in the twelfth minute, as they broke down the left wing, a cross to the far post was headed home by Inessa Kaagman, 1-0.
After going behind the ADO players picked up the challenge and worked hard to get back on level terms, both Michelle Vrieling and Sharona Tieleman forcing the Ajax keeper into good saves.
In the added minute of the first half ADO got the goal their play deserved. A pass by Nance van der Meer brilliantly found Nadine Noordam, she remained calm and placed the ball in the back of the net.
The second half saw ADO again pushing forward, creating chances, yet Ajax were very capable of striking themselves, forcing ADO keeper Jennifer Vreugdenhil into some great saves.
The ADO keeper had to be substituted die to injury in the eighty fourth minute by Isa Pothof. Pothof also was forced to make some fine saves as the clock counted down. Yet heartbreak for ADO as in the final minute of the game, Marjolijn van de Bighelaar hit the winner for Ajax, a goal that sealed their championship title.
