NEC romps to victory in KNVB Beker

25 September 2013-PA Sport

NEC Nijmegen took out its league frustrations on minnow Harkemase Boys in the KNVB Beker as it progressed through to the third round with an 8-0 mauling.

NEC is bottom of the Eredivisie standings without a win from its opening seven games but it enjoyed the change of competition with an emphatic away victory over its fourth-tier opponent.

Christoph Hemlein led the way with a hat-trick, Jakob Jantscher netted a brace while Navarone Foor, Samuel Stefanik and Alireza Jahanbakhsh were also on the scoresheet.

Another top-flight side among the goals was Cambuur Leeuwarden, which won 6-1 at Katwijk with six different players netting for the victor.

Heracles Almelo, which was a beaten finalist in 2012 when it lost 3-0 to PSV Eindhoven, is also through but it needed extra-time to see off fellow Eredivisie side RKC Waalwijk 1-0.

Midfielder Thomas Bruns struck the match-winning goal in the 116th minute.

In the other matches involving Eredivisie sides, ADO Den Haag and Go Ahead Eagles both claimed 3-0 wins, beating GVVV Veenendaal and DVS 33 respectively.
