Play-Off openers rain out; re-scheduled for Sunday
HAARLEM (Neth.) - The opening double-headers of the best-of-three Play-Offs both rained out on Saturday and were re-scheduled for Sunday, September 15.

Both double-headers were scheduled to be played at Haarlem. Oolders Omaco Sparks Haarlem, which finished the regular season in first place, was to play at home against second placed Hotel Ambassador Haarlem Terrasvogels. On the other side of town, third placed FysioExpert Olympia Haarlem was to host Alcmaria Victrix, which qualified for the Play-Offs in last week's final games of the regular season.

Both double-headers will now be played on Sunday, starting at 2 PM. Initially, the if needed third game was scheduled for Sunday. When a third game is needed, this will now be played on Saturday, September 21.

When a third game is needed in one or both series, the second best-of-three round of the Play-Offs (loser 1 vs. 2 against winner 3 vs. 4) will be moved a week ahead and start on Saturday, September 28. And that also means that the first double-header of the best-of-five Holland Series will then be scheduled for Saturday, October 5. Game 3 and if needed 4 then follow on October 12 with an eventual fifth game to be played on October 19.
