Ajax women keep pressure on FC Twente after win over VV Alkmaar
Ajax women did their duty in the premier league by knocking low-fly VV Alkmaar aside. The one-sided encounter ended 5-0 in Amsterdam.
The victory keeps Ajax two points clear of leaders FC Twente, making it increasingly likely that the meeting on April 30 will be decisive in the title race.
That day, in fact, the penultimate round of play in the women’s premier league will be completed. Ajax will also play Heerenveen (away), Fortuna Sittard (away) and PEC Zwolle (away), while Twente will play ADO (home), PEC Zwolle (away) and Feyenoord (home).
Ajax had to wait a long time for a lead against VV Alkmaar. After more than half an hour, Lisa Doorn managed to head the ball into the net. After halftime, Karlijn Woons (own goal), Romée Leuchter, Doorn again and substitute Elisha Kruize further increased the score.
