ADO’20 shoots itself in the foot at a bizarre denouement, OFC champion | Football

USV Hercules saw the title of OFC from Oostzaan with the final 3-3 draw. The Zaankanters themselves won 3-0 against HC & CV Quick from The Hague. The fourth title candidate Gemert threw away the title chances by losing 2-1 to last-placed Hollandia.

Bizarrely enough, ADO’20 not only ruined the home team’s championship party with the late equalizer, but the Heemskerkers also shot themselves in the foot with that goal. With a title of USV Hercules, ADO’20 would have qualified as substitute period champion for the promotional play-offs. By failing for the championship, USV Hercules now needs that play-off ticket itself and as a result the season for ADO’20 is now over. What remains for the Heemskerk club is the eternal gratitude of OFC, that thanks to the urge of ADO’20 to even want to defend the sporting honor at the expense of their own play-off place, they could celebrate a championship party. OFC has secured participation in the Second Division next season thanks to the championship. USV Hercules can still add to that. The Utrecht team play a play-off against DVS’33 from Ermelo.
