amiens - kvo 1-4
In the sunny and fashionable seaside town of Le Touquet, KVO played its fifth practice game, against French second division team Amiens. It did so still without Hubert (shoulder) and Gueye (foot). The latter would resume next week. Kenny Rocha arrived in Oostende the day before but was not yet eligible to play.
The first big chance fell to the French side when striker Arokodare appeared alone in front of Badu but the latter remained well straight. Two minutes later the goal was scored. Barry headed a free kick from close range past Badu: 1-0. The French continued to be dangerous in the opening quarter as Capon could only just save or it was 2-0.
KVO restored the balance and the first chance led immediately to the equalizer. Thierry Ambrose curled the ball cleverly past the goalkeeper: 1-1. The second part of the first half was characterized by much midfield play and few chances. 1-1 was therefore the score at halftime.
In the second half, it was Ambrose again who hit the mark, after a cleverly spun attack through Duncan and Sakamoto: 1-2. Shortly afterwards, the double goal scorer Ambrose was allowed to rest, and it was striker Sakamoto who created danger with a shot. Fifteen minutes before the final whistle, Yves Vanderhaeghe changed his entire team except for the goalkeeper. Striker Mickäel Biron gave thanks with his first goal for KVO after a big blunder by the home goalie: 1-3. Moments later, the goalkeeper was again at fault after firing a distance shot. Biron was fouled and was awarded a penalty, which Patoulidis converted flawlessly: 1-4, also the final score.
