FC Volendam has won the duel of subtoppers in the Kitchen Champion Division. The men of trainer Wim Jonk won with 3-1 and with that they actually got two points too much.
After an impressive tribute to Jax, the deceased son of Eagles-keeper Mitchel Michaelis, Volendam and Eagles started the game which should have been played on Sunday afternoon. At the time the grass in De Eagle shorst was not good enough to play on, but that was the case Tuesday evening and it was Volendam who used it for rest.
The guests played excellent and earned their head start. Boy Deul made it 0-1 five minutes before rest and gave Volendam a good feeling to take a break with him. In the second half, however, the opening hit appeared to have been motivating for Go Ahead, because they took over the direction and after more than an hour of playing football Wout Droste put the 1-1 on the scoreboard.
Everything indicated that the formation from Deventer would also drag the victory out of the fire in the final phase, but nothing was less true. A successful Volendam counter earned a top goal of Samuele Mulattieri in minute 74 and in injury time the Italian also made 1-3 of it. Volendam, the number 7, is only one point behind in the sixth place of Go Ahead because of the victory in Deventer.
