Hockey: Leuven in Division 1 and Uccle Sport in the playoffs

Bold – Uccle Sport: 2-1. The arithmetic was simple at the start of this last meeting of the Ucclois regular season. They had to do as Louvain, who was going to Praxata on his part. A match that Sophie Gerts sponsors will have to take into their own hands. But it was nothing. The daring played without pressure and proved his danger with the ambition of finishing the season in great style, after a week of ensuring his sporting maintenance. And finally, on the fifth local penalty kick, Daniel Bell found the opening (21). After the break, it was Alex Van Linthoudt, who left his armband to Manu Brunet for his last game in a Molenbeek jersey, who doubled his side’s lead. The visitors regained some steam and Ben Nelson pulled one back from the penalty spot. The end of the match was much more disjointed and the outcome unchanged. The Daring signed for their sixth and final success while Uccle Sport, despite the defeat, were assured of play-offs (against Antwerp or Beerschot).

Leopold – Waterloo Ducks: 3-3. Semi-final dress rehearsal next week with this duel at the top between the first and fourth of the competition. And it was Brabanson (without the injured Max Van Ost) who scored the first kick from a penalty kick, which Victor Charlet (21) converted. But Uccle’s reaction was immediate via a massive Tom Boon. The game was fun and it was Jeremy Wilbers who restored the lead for his team from the penalty spot (28). But at halftime, both teams were shining thanks to Elliot van Stridonk (33). In the second half, Leo continued his attacks from the cage of Simon Vandenbroucke and finally Tom Boone who gave himself a brace and scored his 53rd goal this season (in 22 matches). But with only a few seconds left to play in this encounter, the French international equalized from the penalty spot and provided a logical division for the visitors.

Braxgata – Leuven: 6-1. There was no real suspense on Boom’s part because Universitaires was no match for a hard-working local team despite Loick Luypaert’s absence. It wasn’t until the 31st minute that Christoph Adriansen opened the scoring, thus celebrating his last match among the elite. Jeff De Winter doubled the Brax’s lead before the break, from the penalty spot. After the break, the locals untied the scoring and fed the scoreboard via Nelson Onana (41), Ben Walker (66) and Agustin Mazzelli (70 on PC). Mario Music saved the honor for the visitors, who thus returned to Division 1. A result that Liegua Belo Maretti, who finished his career, certainly did not expect when accepting the last independent at the start of the season.

Final defeat for the defending champion

Dragon – Heracles: 1-2. Lierrois will certainly be surprising until the end of this tournament. They had a lackluster season but did deliver some highlights like this final success against one of the title favourites. In a quarter of an hour, Nicolas Della Torre had opened the scoring for the local team from the penalty spot. Antonin Igao equalized before the end of the first half (33), before Nicolas de Kerpel presented his tenth victory with his colors. It was also the last outing for goalkeeper Amaury Timmermans who walked away after a stellar career (14 seasons) in the Division d’honneur.

Old Club – Ghent: 2-8. Flandren’s side perfectly prepared for next weekend’s semi-final against the Dragons by signing hugely successful Ardent City. A lopsided match on paper between a team already guaranteed a return to the D1 after a season between the elite and a title candidate that continues to gain momentum. Today’s scorers: Romain Duvecot (2), Sean Murray (2), Emile Esclin, Timothy Clement, Etienne Teneves and Maxime Deblos. New Zealander Charles Ulrich scored both goals for Liege from a penalty kick. It was also the last meeting ordered by José Brasa whose collaboration ended after 5 years with the Old Club.
