Leopold clinched the 28th title in its history


Leopold clinched the 28th title in its history, the first in 14 years, beating the Beerschot 4-3 (half-time: 1-1) in the return leg of the play-offs of the Audi Hockey League, Sunday in the facilities of Herakles, in Lier.

"We knew the Beerschot could have some surprises for us, and that was the case on Saturday, but I was particularly happy with the mentality of my players on Sunday," said Great Britain coach Robin Geens. "If I analyze now with a little hindsight, I think we were stronger physically and what made the difference is that we were able to go a little further in the effort. "

His players, led to the score after the first quarter, have long stumbled on the defensive block Bear. "Harry Verhoeven is a fantastic goalkeeper who made an irreproachable first half and Arthur De Sloover an incredible defender for the Beerschot. 

We tried to get around them and luckily we managed to equalize before the break. As I saw that the Bee was starting to lose confidence behind, I asked my players to bring as many bullets close to the opposing goalkeeper to play the rebounds and that was successful. 

A title, where I may have made my contribution to the building, but that I see especially important for the club, the fans, the president and the entourage of the team, " concludes Robin Geens.

Leopold, with 28 coronations, still holds the greatest number of titles since the creation of the championship in 1919. The Beerschot is still looking for his 7th title, the last dating back to 1944. 

These two clubs will defend the colors of Belgium at the next edition of the EHL, along with the Herakles, who earlier in the day beat the Dragons 5-3 to shoot-outs for third place in the championship.

The host club of the play-offs finals lost 4-5 against Brasschaat on Saturday in the opening round, but rectified on Sunday at the return, winning by 2 goals to 1 to give themselves the right to challenge the outgoing champions to shoot-outs.
