Hockey: Racing returns to Earth while Uccle Sport still believes in preservation

La Giantoise – The Race: 4-0. The awakening was complicated for the people of Brussels the day after the bronze medal in the EHL. Racing were visiting the other Belgian representative in the European Cup and there was no match between the two teams as Flanders dominated the exchanges. Pascal Keena’s father-in-law quickly took the lead by not leaving the slightest bit of space for their visitors today. And it was Antoine Kenna who launched the hostilities from a penalty kick by firing a shell into the roof of the goal in his first attempt of the match (15). Then it was French international striker Timothy Clement who logically doubled his team’s lead (24th). Ucclois was taken by the throat and couldn’t find the show to be truly serious. The game appeared to be over 120 seconds before it was back in the locker room when Romain Dovecote also scored. In the second half, the Gent striker gave himself a brace in the 47th minute and put his team in a velvet position. This twelfth success allows the Flanders team to settle comfortably in the top four while the situation becomes more complicated for a race that will not have the right to make mistakes to capture the semifinals and play-offs.

Dare – Dragons: 1-5. There was no miracle for Molenbekoa who couldn’t handle Antwerp’s strike force still wreaking havoc every Sunday. Thirteenth success for Craig Fulton’s men who very quickly validated their ticket to the semi-finals. In the second half, the score was already 0-3 after the goals of the international players, the Australian, Blake Gophers (with one hit), and the Argentine Nicolas Della Torre (twice with penalties). Henry Rice struck out in the second inning before Daniel Bell smiled to his fans, kicking a penalty. Thomas Krolls permeated the visitors’ performance, from the penalty spot less than a minute after the final whistle. The Daring still hold onto ninth place in the standings, but the Brussels residents are well aware they still have to pick up points, here and there, to ensure their maintenance in the Division d’Honneur.

Uccle Sport – Old Club: 2-1. The duel with the promoter turned out to be in the advantage of Ucclois, who thus earned 3 base units in the fight for maintenance. After the scoring was opened in the seventh minute by New Zealander Charles Ulrich, Liegewa never let go, but the locals ended up with goals from Juan Ignacio Amoroso, with a penalty (49th) and Cedric Muschetti, with just four goals. Minutes left to play the scoreboard. A match that could have taken a very different turn on Arnaud Flamand didn’t stop a stroke by Tom Dawance at the start of the second half. A great success, the fourth of the season, which allows Ucclois to take a breath of fresh air and move up the rankings ahead of Louvain and their opponents today. The final days will be very difficult to avoid finishing on one of the two D1-leaning seats.

Heracles – Leopold: 1-2. A 16th season victory for Ucclois who had already confirmed their place in the semifinals. A success that would not have been easy to build even if Louis Eaton had found the net shortly before the end of the first quarter, in the penalty phase. In the second half, Tom Bunn took care of his average goals and doubled the visitors’ lead from a penalty kick (43). At the end of the match Arthur de Borickens gave a small hope to the Lierrois (deprived of Amaury Keusters) but it was already too late to succeed in reversing the trend or hope to bring back a small unit.

Leuven – Waterloo Ducks: 0-7. Like their racing counterparts, Brabançon has lacked consistency this season. A situation that may lead to tricks on them and may deprive them of the playoffs.

Today’s scorers: Gaëtan Dykmans, William Ghislain, Victor Charlet (computer), Blaise Rogeau and Louis De Backer (2).
