On Monday, the draw for the semi-finals of the Silver Cup Women was made at the KNHB office in Utrecht. On Friday 12 May, the clubs will compete for a place in the final of the second cup tournament. The games start at 8:30 p.m.
The semi-finalists have already won their first prize. In the new season they can participate in the Gold Cup, the cup for teams up to and including the Overgangsklasse. A tough journey awaits GHBS. The Groningen team, which is defending its title, can sit in the car for more than three hours in the direction of South Limburg, where Maastricht will be the opponent in a week and a half.
Maastricht needed shoot-outs twice to reach the last four. On Friday Delta Venlo was beaten in this way, after seventy minutes it was 3-3. In the sixth round, shoot-outs were also needed to win against HCAS.
GHBS won 3-0 against De IJssel on Friday, in front of their home crowd. Because the northerners won the Silver Cup last year, they started this season in the Gold Cup, losing in the first round to Bully. Then they moved on to the second cup tournament.
In the other semifinal, Westerpark and Apeliotes will face each other. The Nijmegen students also needed shoot-outs to shake off Craeyenhout. There, too, it was 3-3 after regular time. Westerpark narrowly won against Houten, which was beaten 1-0 in Amsterdam on Friday.
Maastricht – GHBS
