Wewent to the Caveman Challenge this weekend and we speak with Pieter Jan Postma about his upcoming and already third participation at the Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro.
Soccer: vv Staphorst - HZVV
Both Staphorst as HZVV currently stand in the middle of rankings in the current overall standings. If both teams want to play in the top, they have to wake-up now and start winning some games. Last week HZVV lost with 1-2 at home against DOS'37 and Staphorst won with 0-1 in Urk. This week, Staphorst has the home advantage and will have to defend its goal against a very motivated HZVV.
Soccer: Harkemase Boys - SVZW
Harkemase Boys is on the right track and is currently in third place in the overall standings, with only one point difference on Excelsior'31. In contrary to SVZW, because they are having a rough start to the season. The team from Hoogeveen has to start making some points if they don’t wnat to end up in the relegation danger zone. Last week they played a draw, at home against ACV and Harkemase Boys won with 2-3 against VVOG. It will be a difficult task for SVZW this coming Saturday in Harkema, but maybe they will surprise us.
Soccer: Standings and Results
This weekend several soccer clubs from our region will come to action. In our soccer section we show the positions and results in combination with a number of goals of the matches SWZ Boso Sneek - HBS, Excelsior Maassluis - HHC Hardenberg and ACV - VVOG.
Volleyball: Abiant Lycurgus - Inter Rijswijk & VC Sneek - Landstede volleyball
The volleyball competitions will start this weekend and traditionally it was opened during the Super Cup match in Doetinchem last week. Normally, the battle for the Super Cup is between the national champions and cup winners. However Landstede from Zwolle won both awards and therefore Lycurgus also played during the Super Cup match. Both the ladies from Sneek as the men from Groningen won and went home full self-assurance. A good start is half the work they say sometimes and who knows, maybe this coming weekend during the first matches this will come true for both teams.
Survival Run: Caveman Challenge
This year the second edition of the Caveman Challenge Series will take place in Exloo. Participants can choose from three fun distances: 6.66 km, 13.13 km or 19.19 kilometers. participant should certainly not be afraid to get dirty. Especially the 13.13 kilometer distance is very popular. Many people who participated last year set the bar higher compared to last year. Also this time dozens of obstacles are placed in the area between Exloo and Valthe. Furthermore, they use natural obstacles such as a water ditch where participants need to dredge thrue hundreds of meters.
