IT’S ALSO FUN IN PROVINCIALE. The ‘Royals’ of Berlaar-Heikant, apologies to Oppuurs B and more!
20 de November, 2023
Sorry, Oppuurs B!
Last week we wrote here that there was still a team in our province following in the wake of PSV. That team? That was Oppuurs B. But just when there was an international break at PSV, Oppuurs B met the tough guys from Rupel Boom B. The result? The B-oompkens drew 1-1, the first loss of points of the season for Jorno Kerremans’ boys. For which we feel a little guilty.
Although they are still in the lead in 4th provincial A.
Berlaar-Heikant goes on the royal tour
Stop saying Balder-Heikant versus FC Berlaar-Heikant. From now on we talk about Royal Football Club Berlaar-Heikant. The team, founded in 1972, received royal post this week and can call itself ‘Royal’ for its 51st birthday. To reward themselves, the Purple & White won 2-1 against De Kempen.
Congratulations to Balder erm… KFC Berlaar-Heikant!
If things go well, we’ll say so!
… because our policy people from Voetbal Vlaanderen have made the right decision. No general cancellation, referee decides on the spot. And when it poured on Saturday, we had our doubts, for a moment. But in the end there was too much water in ‘only’ 8 areas, the referee thought.
You’re not going to cripple an entire calendar for that. Kudos this time to Voetbal Vlaanderen.
The unlucky guy of the week
We have often talked about the ‘own goal’ phenomenon in this section. We have, we may be honest, a slight fascination with the event. It is extra painful, for example, when such an own goal is the only achievement in an entire match.
Yet it happened to Vincent Du Pont van Hallaar. In the 53rd minute, paf, his ball ended up in his own goal and KFC Katelijne took the three-pointer. A blessing for the vegetable growers, an accident for the mill sons. Then just make something right against Schriek?
Switch power to 2A
We write it week after week: but in 2A it is really very enjoyable for the neutral viewer. How do the teams play leapfrog with each other? Not normal. Before this weekend, Oppuurs and SC Duffel were in the lead. But due to a loss of points, KV Hooikt and FC Ekeren jumped over the two teams from Klein-Brabant.
Who will be in the lead next? Only time will tell!
Like brother, like brother
Isn’t that a typo, dear author of ‘In Provinciale Is Het Ook Plezant’? The saying goes: ‘Like father, like son’. And you are absolutely right about that, my readers! But in SC Mechelen they have a variation on that since this weekend. In the 8-2 win against Wavria B, one R. Gano scored three times. And now you can guess who Raffa’s brother is? A small tip: he is an attacker for Zulte Waregem and his name does not rhyme with Snelle Bossen.
Yep, it’s Zinho Gano, who is eight years older.
Two penalties in one match? It’s possible, Vincent Janssen!
He won’t lose sleep over it for a long time, but the real die hard Antwerp supporter still remembers it. We are talking about the two penalties in the same match that Vincent Janssen missed at home against RWDM a few weeks ago. Was it fear of failure, stress at a 0-0 score or did he see something we don’t see? We’ll never know.
What we do know is that it is indeed possible to score two penalties in one match. Stijn Kustermans of KSV Wildert proved this once again on the field of SK Putte on Sunday. The 23-year-old Kustermans opened the scoring from the spot and only scored the winning goal from the same spot in the 91st minute. Well done, Kustermans!
