Club NXT with season's first win against Lierse Kempenzonen

Club NXT started their game against Lierse without a couple of regulars. Sandra and Van den Keybus are still out with an injury, while De Cuyper and Badji are selected for Club's first team against Kortrijk. Coach Rik De Mil and his team hoped to experience the sweet of victory after four draws at Daknam.

 

Our youngsters started the game lively with lots of pressure on the visitors. Club NXT were more agile and quiker than the opponents. The first chance of the match was for Baeten, but his shot was deflected into a corner kick. Club NXT's wingers made life difficult for Lierse. After half an hour Sagna pushed through and whipped in a perfect cross to the unmarked Baeten who headed into the far corner: 1-0. A deserved for Club NXT at the half-time break.

 

In the second half Appiah went past a couple of defenders before playing the ball to Sagna, who was unmarked in front of goal, but the winger scuffed his finish wide. Engels' perfect free-kick didn't find a teammate in front of goal. Instead of doubling the score, Lierse created some chances to level things up. Placca hit the post with a great shot and a free-kick was almost pounced home, but Shinton did great to save on two close-range efforts.

 

Club NXT was warned and went out looking for the liberating second goal. Appiah feeded Sagna, but the winger put it wide again. A few minutes later the hard-working Van der Brempt powered through to the Lierse defence from the right-hand side and slotted home with a left-footed finish. That second goal killed the game as Lierse didn't have the energy left to try and turn things around.

Club NXT finally gets a first win after having been close a couple of times on previous occassions. Next week Club NXT visits Deinze. One team, one Club NXT, one family!
