SC Cambuur strengthened its lead in the Kitchen Champion Division on Friday thanks to a 3-1 win over Telstar.

Earlier in the evening, NEC booked the biggest win in club history at Helmond Sport: 0-7.

Cambuur was already leading 2-0 against Telstar after twenty minutes.

Robin Maulun opened the score in the eleventh minute and Robert Mühren took advantage of fumbling in the visitors' defense moments later.

Just before half-time, Rashaan brought Fernandes Telstar back into the game after a nice through pass from Redouan El Yaakoubi.

Jarchinio Antonio extended Cambuur's lead early in the second half, however, and thus also determined the final score.

Thanks to the victory, Cambuur now has nine points ahead of number two De Graafschap.

The Doetinchemmers will still play at home against FC Eindhoven on Sunday.

Number five Go Ahead Eagles simply won 0-4 at TOP Oss.

Antoine Rabillard scored twice and the other goals came in the name of Jacob Mulenga and Giannis Fivos Botos.

NEC records the biggest win in club history

Earlier in the day, Helmond Sport had to continue with ten men against NEC after fourteen minutes due to a red card for Orhan Dzepar, who was punished for taking down the broken Elayis Tavsan.

Three minutes later, NEC took advantage of the surplus situation with a goal by Rens van Eijden, who hit the ball after a free kick by Jordy Bruijn landed on the crossbar.

Even before the break, the visitors came to 0-3 via goals from Rangelo Janga (rebound) and Bruijn (beautiful long shot).

In the second half, Édgar Barreto quickly increased the score further.

The 36-year-old Paraguayan hit from a corner and made his first goal since he returned to Nijmegen last summer after thirteen years.

Shortly afterwards, Barreto provided the assist to Tavsan's 0-5.

Bart van Rooij made the sixth goal with a marker eight minutes before time and substitute Thibo Baeten ensured that the club record was broken in the final phase.

NEC's previous biggest away was February 7, 2020, when Telstar was beaten 1-7.

Thanks to the victory, the team of coach Rogier Meijer is more firmly in sixth place.

Just like NEC, MVV also recorded its third victory in a row.

The people from Maastricht were 0-1 too strong for Young FC Utrecht at Sportcomplex Zoudenbalch.

Joy-Lance Mickels was crowned match winner at MVV, which climbs to fourteenth place.
