It rained personal bests, milestones and club records in the last round of the Tulp Hoofdklasse. Yibbi Jansen (SCHC), Jip Janssen (Kampong) and Jeroen Hertzberger (Rotterdam) claimed – not for the first time – the leading roles.
Tulip Hoofdklasse Ladies
Top scorer Yibbi Jansen was dry for a few weeks, but scored again last Sunday as usual. She used two penalty corners against Bloemendaal (0-3 victory) and thus lifted her production to 22 goals in this competition. Including her goals in the battle for the Gold Cup (seven) and EHL (three), the counter for Jansen already stands at 32 this season, a new personal best and also a new club record at SCHC.
Freeke Moes also reported in the sub-top of the top scorers’ classification. The attacker from Amsterdam scored twice against Hurley on Sunday (5-1 win) and for the first time in her career tapped the double digits within one season (ten goals). In the footsteps of Moes, Den Bosch attacker Joosje Burg equaled her personal record of last season: she accounted for one of the four Bossche goals against Little Switzerland and is therefore on nine hits.

Tulip Men’s Major League
Jeroen Hertzberger and Jip Janssen will decide next Sunday who can call themselves the top scorer of this competition. Hertzberger scored once for Rotterdam in the away match against HGC (1-3) and thus scored 34 goals. With that he equaled the eleven-year-old club record of Roderick De Knoest Weusthof. Coming Saturday, the 37-year-old goal getter against Amsterdam will only need one hit to set the club record.
Janssen scored twice on behalf of Kampong in the home game against Klein Switzerland (4-4), now has 32 hits this season and thus reached the milestone of one hundred goals in the Dutch big league. He is now the sixth Kampong player with at least 100 league goals to his name.

Women’s promotion class
At the top of the top scorers list, only Janneke van de Venne did not score last Sunday, but the Orange-Rood attacker will not be bothered by that. After all, her team secured promotion to the big league with a 3-2 victory over Push.
With two rounds to go, Liz Klompmaker (Groningen) and Bo van Kempen (MOP) have the best credentials to conquer the top scorers’ title. In last Sunday’s mutual duel between MOP and Groningen in Vught (3-2), Van Kempen scored once and Klompmaker twice. The latter leads the standings with sixteen hits.

Men’s promotion class
Joep Troost (Almere) and Kenny Bain (Laren) both added three goals to their production this season. Troost scored all Almere goals against Push (3-0) and Bain scored three of the five Laren goals against Ring Pass (5-0). Both attackers still have a gap to bridge with top scorer David Blom, who scored his 22nd league goal on behalf of Nijmegen against HBS (4-2 win) at home.
