The Dutch hockey players won again in the Pro League on Sunday after shoot-outs from Argentina. After regular playing time, the game ended in Buenos Aires in 2-2.
The Netherlands came back after three minutes due to a goal from Lucas Vila. The lead of Argentina was doubled eighteen minutes later by Agustin Mazzilli.
Immediately after the break, Mirco Pruyser took care of the connection goal. The vice-world champion seemed to be heading for a defeat, but four minutes before time, Robbert Kemperman signed for the tying run.
In the shoot-outs, the Dutch team went 4-3 at the longest end, earning the bonus point. On Saturday, the team won national coach Max Caldas even after shoot-outs from Argentina.
Thanks to the bonus point, the Netherlands is even more firmly in second place with ten points. The gap with Belgium's leader is four points. Different countries have played a lot less matches.
In their next game in the Pro League, Dutch hockey players will meet New Zealand. That game will be played in Rotterdam on March 20.
In the night from Sunday to Monday (Dutch time), the Dutch hockey players will play against Argentina in Buenos Aires. The reigning world champion suffered the first defeat in a night from Saturday to Sunday against Argentina (2-0) in more than a year.
