RICH FIDLER - Tuesday, February 23, 2010
Helmond Sport won their third straight game on Monday night, thanks to a pair of goals from Johan Voskamp, easily defeating bitter rival FC Oss.
American midfielder Charles Kazlauskas went the full 90 minutes against his former club in the victory. Kazlauskas made 124 appearances for Oss before making his move Helmond Sport prior to this season.
Despite missing the regular midfielder duo of DaniŽl Guijo-Velasco and Bruno Fernandes de Brito, the visitors controlled the tempo the entire first half, nearly going ahead only to be stopped by FC Oss goalkeeper Wilko de Vogt.
The first of Voskamp's goals came in the 62nd minute after on-loan Liverpool striker Vincent Weijl rounded de Vogt in the penalty area. With a difficult angle, the striker crossed the ball in to the six-yard box where Voskamp pounced on the cross, poking it in the back of the net.
Just three minutes from the final whistle, the striker, who now has 14 goals on the season, stepped to the penalty spot and calmly finished past a sprawling 'keeper for his second of the evening after an intentional handball in the penalty area.
Helmond will continue their busy schedule when they host FC Volendam on Friday night.
