Heren 1 is dus gewoon Winterkampioen! / US1 celebrating Christmas as league leader

Heren 1 is dus gewoon Winterkampioen! / US1 celebrating Christmas as league leader

(Onze Noorse ster Harald is trots als een pauw. Dat komt ook omdat Noorwegen Europees kampioen werd tkv NL, grr...) Sicco and his group have been on fire lately, but they knew the match against Hellas 2 would be a challenging one. The preparations were not ideal with some of the foreigners being too eager to visit Scheveningen (see pic). On top of this they managed to get lost in the not very beautiful city of Den Haag.  Anyway, the US got their shit together and started the match in a good way. Roel and Jeffrey scored some beautiful goals while defense was set from the very first minute. Other players came on and did an equally good job. The team effort meant US were leading 13-8 at the halt time. The impressive performance continued in the second half and the visitors never gave the home team any chance to come back into the match.  Lead by impressive shooting from Sven they kept on frustrating the home side and they took an impressive 28-20 win. Results elsewhere meant that US1 are now top of the league, which is not normal at this time of the year. All foreigners will now head home for a deserved break and it will be interesting to see how many kilos they manage to gain during the Christmas period.

Four in a row for US 1!

Four in a row for US 1!

Six points from three matches meant that Sicco and his crew went into the match against Cometas full of confidence. The US Christmas party the night before saw some people showing up more hungover than others, but this did not stop them from getting off to flyer in Amstel Campus Hal. Solid defending combined with good shooting gave them a comfortable 8-3 lead after 10 minutes. From here, they never looked back and the home side went into the break leading 17-9. The show continued in the second half and the winning margin kept on getting bigger and bigger with the visitors getting frustrated. After 60 minutes the scoreboard showed 35-22 to US. The only downside of the match was that Harald managed to get a red card as the referees thought he was treating the chickens from Cometas too harsh. In all honesty, he should have learned after four season of playing Dutch handball that you are not allowed to touch players in defense. (Comment at the pic: Harald’s reaction the Dutch handball rules)

Meine Zeit bei US was vor allem eins: super gezellig! Jeder Neuzugang wird mit offenen Armen empfangen und kann sofort mitmachen: sowohl beim Training als auch beim borrel oder stapavond danach. Und obwohl es ein Verein ist der aus vielen Studenten besteht und deshalb jedes Jahr viele Mitglieder kommen und gehen, geht es trotzdem darum guten Handball zu spielen. Jeder ist ehrgeizig und mit vollem Einsatz dabei. Für jeden der also Spaß am Handball hat und Lust auf den ein oder anderen gezelligen Abend danach, ist US auf jeden Fall genau das Richtige ☺

Een onvindbare bus, een gezellige teamavond en 2 punten voor U.S.!

Na een geslaagde sinterklaasavond verzamelden wij ons op zondagochtend op Sloterdijk om vervolgens naar het verre Leeuwaarden te vertrekken. Zoals altijd leek alles goed geregeld te zijn, toch liep het dit keer niet zoals verwacht. De bus die wij hadden geregeld, was niet vindbaar en daarom moesten wij improviseren, maar gelukkig was het snel gefixt. Ons eerste teambuilding activiteit was dus volledig geslaagd. Na 1,5 uur reizen kwamen wij op tijd aan bij Cometas. Wij gingen positief de wedstrijd in en geloofden in ons spel wat wij vorige week tegen VOC eindelijk weer konden laten zien. In de eerste paar minuten lukte bijna alles. Door ons tempospel, een goede verdediging en drie mooie ballen van Mitch naar onze cirkelspeelster Marleen stonden wij gelijk ruim voor. Daarna zakten wij een beetje in en gingen met 14-14 door een directe vrij worp van Judy de kleedkamer in.

Familiedag Dames 5

Zondag was niet zoals andere zondagen, want het was namelijk familiedag bij Dames 5. Wekenlang hebben we onze familie en vrienden voorbereid via het Facebook evenement en afgelopen zondag was het eindelijk zo ver. Vanaf 3 uur druppelden onze fans binnen en om tien over 3 begon onze wedstrijd tegen Lelystad, die laatste in onze poule staan. In onderschatten zijn we best goed, dus we wisten allemaal dat we er ook deze wedstrijd gewoon voor moesten knokken. De eerste helft ging minder dan matig en we gingen de rust in met 7-6. Ook de tweede helft begonnen we niet zo goed en op een gegeven moment stonden we 8-10 achter. Maar toen sloeg het om; we zouden en gingen NIET verliezen, zeker niet onder het toeziend oog van onze fans.

Heren 1 is on fire! Koploper opgerold

Heren 1 is on fire! Koploper opgerold

(Harald is in opperbeste stemming) Two solid wins gave Sicco and his crew high confidence heading into the top match against Unitas. The people from the far East arrived in Amsterdam on Saturday due to early game time on Sunday. However, they decided to sleep at a hotel close to Schiphol out of all places. Both sides were on fire in the opening minutes and none of the teams were able to take control of the match. This changed after 15 minutes when the home team stepped up their game. From here, they gave Unitas a lesson in handball and the score at half time was 16-9. The lesson continued in the second half and US didn’t hit the brakes until they were leading 24-14. Logically, everyone felt like calming down after this. Defense opened up, but goals kept on coming with the match ending 33-26 in favour of US1.  All players contributed to the win in this match and this is good to know moving forward. Next match is against Cometas on Sunday in Amstel Campus Hal. Who knows, maybe this will be the moment when US becomes top of the league?

Allright, H1 making progress in SOEST!

Allright, H1 making progress in SOEST!

(Harald & Jimmy report) After the convincing win over rock bottom Hercules (38-22), Sicco made it clear that on the 4th of December is a big day as US1 will be facing table leaders Unitas. However, BDC had to beaten before that and they were the only team to beat Unitas so far this season. So, the players had every reason to be fired up for the trip to the royal area of Soest.

Sven, accompanied by his dad from Germany, started the show with his tremendous shooting and US were leading 6-2 straight away. The home team bounced back though and the scored at half-time was 11-9 for the guests.  The away team used thehalf time to fire each other up and this gave immediate results.  Togheter with Jaap, the defense closed the shop and US were suddenly leading 16-9 and from here they never looked back. The boys let all hormones go wild and did not stop until they were leading 25-15. From here they focused more on the after match activities, but still kept focused and won the match 28-19. They party alarm went on and celebrations took place in the shower with serious amount of beers being consumed and some less talented singing taking place.

League leaders Unitas will be in Amsterdam on Sunday 4th at 11:15. US1 is unbeaten at home and there is every reason to be present when the match in Amstel Campus Hal. Afterwards all of you can celebrate a thing called Sinterklaas.
