Game 1
In the first game, Onze Gezellen led 9-4 halfway the fourth inning, but then, the suspense got back into the game and in the end, the visitors won by only one run.

Onze Gezellen opened the score with two runs in the top of the first inning off of starter DaniŽlle ten Donkelaar. Noa Armirotto led off with a double and moved on a grounder. Kelsy Pieneman was then hit by a pitch. Hereafter, a good sacrifice bunt by Babs de Jonge enabled Armirotto to score the first run.

She advanced to third base on a sacrifice bunt by Dinet Oosting and scored the tying run on a 2-out double by Lizzie Clarijs. Today, Clarijs played against most of her teammates of last season when they played for Terrasvogels, which merged with Onze Gezellen. Clarijs scored the go-ahead run on a single by Nadine Marinus. After next batter Aafje van Baal walked, TTT got runners on second and third base via a passed ball, but they were left behind.

Noa Armirotto then walked and Ella Krommendijk followed with a runscoring single that tied the score. After Armirotto scored on a wild pitch, Krommendijk scored the next run on a single by Amy Udink.
