Soccer: VV Staphorst - ONS Sneek
This weekend the semifinals of the cup tournament were played. Staphorst fought ONS Sneek at home. The team from Sneek managed to eliminate Oranje Nassau Groningen during the quarterfinals, while Staphorst won against PKC '83. ONS Sneek was the winner of the cup in 2014. Last year Staphorst reached the finals, but lost against Harkemase Boys with 4-3.
Soccer: VV Groningen - Flevo Boys
In the other semifinal match, third division club VV Groningen played against Flevo Boys. VV Groningen was too strong for Harkemase Boys and Genemuiden. The club of Groningen turns out to be the revelation of this cup tournament. Could VV Groningen defeat Flevo Boys as well?
Volleyball: VC Sneek – Set-Up‘65
Just like last season, VC Sneek wants to be the national champion. So far, they've made it to the finals of the play-offs. This weekend VC Sneek played against Set-Up‘65 from Ootmarsum. Set-Up'65 managed to finish just above Sliedrecht Sport in the Champions group, because of a better set balance.
Volleyball: Lycurgus – Orion
Lycurgus was too strong for Dynamo Apeldoorn in the semifinals. During the other semifinal match, Orion from Doetinchem had trouble winning of Landstede Zwolle. Eventually, Orion barely won with 2-1 in sets. In the finals, both teams play the best-of-five. This Sunday, the first final match was played in Martinplaza in Groningen.
Basketball: Aris – Zwolle
Aris Leeuwarden did themselves a great disservice by losing from Rotterdam in the final seconds. However, they still have one chance to make it to the play-offs: they have to win from Zwolle. Zwolle already placed itself for the semifinals, and thus may skip the first play-off round.
Volleyball: Portrait of the sisters Jasper

The eldest sister Marrit (20) is a valuable player of VC Sneek's first division team, her younger sister Hester (14) recently joined the selection, and their other sister Rianne (17) is a player of the third division team of VC Sneek.
