The European match was slow to get going on Saturday in Moldova. In spite of that, the Ajax Women had the better of the play in the first half. Tiny Hoekstra had a good opportunity with a header off a corner in the first fifteen minutes, but saw her effort go just over the enemy goal.
Leuchter and Spitse find the mark
Suzanne Bakker's team did find the net after half an hour's play through Leuchter. The Ajax striker headed a cross from Hoekstra into the mesh. Just before the half, the Ajax Women were also awarded a penalty after a handball by an FC Dinamo BSUPC player. This golden opportunity was converted by the captain Spitse: 2-0
The Ajax Women had no further problems against FC Dinamo BSUPC in the second half. They successfully defended their lead. In the closing minutes, Leuchter scored her second goal of the match for a final result in Moldova of a 3-0 victory for the Ajax Women.
