Heracles Almelo won a whopping 7-0 at home against Telstar in the first division. Big man for the Heracles was Samuel Armenteros. He started on the bench, fell in during the first half and scored a hat-trick.

The victory takes number two Heracles to three points from leaders PEC Zwolle, although the Zwolle players still have a game to go.

Early substitution Satriano

Heracles took a 3-0 lead within the half hour through two goals by Anas Ouahim (slider and simple shot into the sixteen-meter area) and a header by Nikolai Laursen. A notable moment was a substitution in the 36th minute. Striker Antonio Satriano was allowed to come to the side at the 3-0 lead already.

The 19-year-old Italian had picked up a silly yellow card early on and was gaudily applying for a red card. Heracles coach John Lammers intervened and substituted Satriano, who clearly did not like it, for Armenteros.

Armenteros celebrates with supporters

Armenteros proved his coach right less than three minutes later with a beautiful goal, where he shot the ball almost from the back line after a long dribble into the roof of the goal: 4-0.

It wasn’t until 15 minutes before time that something was happening again in the Erve Asito stadium. Emil Hansson luckily got the ball into the sixteen and finished in a controlled manner. He was already shared top scorer with Dylan Vente, with his fifteenth goal he is again alone at the top of the standings.

Armenteros was not done yet and showed his class again ten minutes before time: 6-0. That was not the end of the cake. In the 89th minute he simply – and with some luck – shot the 7-0 and thus his hat-trick from close range.

De Graafschap and NAC

A hat-trick was also scored in Eindhoven. Camiel Neghli did that on behalf of De Graafschap against FC Eindhoven, also the still only sixteen-year-old Othniel Raterink scored: 0-4. NAC Breda lost a 2-0 lead against FC Dordrecht, but still won 3-2 through a goal by Moreno Rutten.
