The women of Ajax started the premier league excellently by winning the topper against FC Twente 3-1. All goals fell in the first half.
The Amsterdammers did fall behind early on in the game due to a goal from international Stefanie van der Gragt, who came over from FC Barcelona.
Marjolijn van de Bighelaar, under the watchful eye of national coach Sarina Wiegman, quickly restored the balance by surprising Twente goalkeeper Daphne van Domselaar with a high ball.
