FC Volendam immediately spilled points at the start of the Kitchen Champion Division. On a visit to Telstar the number three of last season came no further than a 2-2 draw.
The home team, dressed in a special shirt in honour of Saturday’s 80th birthday club icon Simon Kistemaker, took a lead early in the game. Ilias Bronkhorst gave the ball the final push after a corner, after goalkeeper Nordin Bakker did not go free.
Bakker again made a mediocre impression in the 2-0. On a cross from the left of Shayne Pattynama he dived over the ball. With the help of Volendam defender Derry Murkin, occasional striker Bronkhorst was able to celebrate his second goal of the afternoon.
Just before the break the disappointing FC Volendam scored the connecting goal. Nick Doodeman shot on Jari’s indication just before the break.
Coach Wim Jonk’s formation was stronger for the day after the break, and halfway through the second half that resulted in the equaliser. Invader Zakaria El Azzouzi was able to head in from close in. Both teams were unable to score after that.
