Which teams will show up in the play-offs for the championship in the Dutch premier league with SIS Schoonmaak and Team Eekhoorn? Cues&Darts and Topbiljart Zundert are the big contenders, Bousema and Dekker are making one last attempt to make it nto the top four. This weekend in the Kozoom league, the premier league, we can watch the double round, 21 and 22, the final rounds of play in the regular competition. The battle focuses on the top positions and the fight in the lower regions. Follow the climax of the regular league on Kozoom!

Friday, 10 May the catch-up match, between Zundert and Dekker was played. Roland Forthomme forced the decision in the match at centercourt with a 1-point win over Dave Christiani.

The results were:

Roland Forthomme-Dave Christiani 40-39 in 32

Thorsten Frings-Barry van Beers 40-38 in 33

Sam van Etten-Gerwin Valentijn 40-28 in 25

Danny Geysen-Henk Blauwblomme 32-40 in 30.

Team Nachtwacht is at the bottom with 10 points out of 20 the most worrying. Aartsbouw Sprundel has 12 out of 20, J&F Auto has 13 out of 20 and Burgmans Biljarts 14. DKM Tools needs 1 more point in the double to escape the danger zone.

SPC Capelle aan den IJssel and Biljartacademie Sittard made the promotion from the first division to the premier league and are the sure newcomers.

Last night, Friday, Zundert and Dekker play their catch-up match at Den Hoek in Zundert. Zundert won the match 6-2 and is the only number three in the ranking now with 27 match points, four points down to SIS Schoonmaak and Team Eekhoorn. Zundert is 1 point away from the playoffs now.

This Saturday and Sunday the battle continues and the top billings are for the positions at the top:


Team Eekhoorn-Cues&Darts

SIS Schoonmaak-Dekker



Dekker-Team Squirrel

Cues&Darts-Burgmans Biljarts

Bousema-J&F Auto

Zundert-SIS Schoonmaak.

Even more exciting may be the fight to stay in the premier league. 

DKM Tools, with the best chances to survive of the five teams at the bottom, is putting Birol Uymaz, Dion Nelin, Ronny Lindemann and Davy van Havere in as big guns for the matches away against Dallinga.com and Sunday at home against Aartsbouw Sprundel. Team Nachtwacht and Aartsbouw Sprundel stand to see off the bottom two places to avoid direct relegation. 

Aartsbouw Sprundel plays at home against Bousema and away against DKM Tools. Team Night Watch Saturday at home against J&F Auto and Sunday at home against Dallinga. Both Burgmans and J&F Auto need at least one more win, but even then those two teams are not sure of retention then.

The standings in the Kozoom league are now:

SIS Schoonmaak 20-31

Team Eekhoorn 20-31

Topbiljart Zundert 20-27

Cues&Darts 20-25

Bousema Lochem 20-23

Dekker 20-21

Dallinga 20-17

DKM Tools 20-16
