schone aVitesse got the days action underway, and although they fell behind to an Eggers goal they comfortably beat RVVH 3-1, with Theo Janssen, Jan-Arie van der Heijden, and Guram Kashia all netting.

NAC Breda also had to come from behind against Smitshoek, with Tom den Boer scoring, but Elson Hooi, and Mats Seuntjens spared their blushes in a 2-1 win.

Goals from Filip Kostic, and Genero Zeefuik gave Groningen a 2-0 win over AFC, and see them safely through to the third round.

Rijnsburgse Boys took the lead against Roda JC through Martin van Eeuwijk, but the Eredivisie side fought back, and two goals from Frank Demouge gave them a 2-1 win.

Telstar shocked the Philips Stadion by taking the lead early on against PSV, with Diangi Matusiwa scoring, but a hat-trick from Jurgen Locadia, and a Florian Jozefzoon goal saw the Eindhoven side comfortably through 4-1.

Utrecht breezed past Den Bosch 4-1 thanks to goals from Steve de Ridder, Gevero Markiet, and a Jens Toornstra double, while Mark van der Maarel scored an own goal to give the visitors a consolation.

Holders AZ Alkmaar needed extra time to progress past Sparta Rotterdam, after Voskamp equalised Mattias Johansson’s opener. However in the extra 30 minutes, a double from Aron Johannsson, and a Berghuis strike saw AZ safely through 4-1.

PEC Zwolle continued their good start to the season by beating Fortuna Sittard 2-0 with Joost Broerse, and Rochdi Achenteh scoring the goals.

In the final match, Ajax suffered a major scare, before overcoming Volendam 4-2 in extra time. In a game which started with a tribute to Gerrie Muhren, who died last week it was Rob Muhren who stole the show. The Volendam forward equalised after Lucas Andersen had put Ajax ahead, before putting the Eerste Divisie side ahead in extra time. However Ajax then woke up, with a Lasse Schone double, and a Danny Hoesen goal gaving them a 4-2 win.

Elsewhere Noordwijk saw off De Zouaven 2-0, ASWH beat ADO’20 1-0, and Hoek hammered HBS 3-0 to progress to the next round.
