In a very interesting match, the Netherlands was able to win with extreme difficulty from a fanatic Belgium team that didn't want to resign in advance to a predicted defeat. In fact, in the first half, Belgium took the lead (8-9), but had to pause with a 12-9 deficit. In the 2nd half Belgium came dangerously close (19-17) but the Netherlands still managed to reach a 22-17 final score.
