After Pavlidis’ attempt went wide, Quick Boys scored at the other end with another quick counter. Nigel Nwankwo remained calm and scored in the 59th minute.

After the Alkmaarders had already appeared dangerously in front of the Quick Boys goal a few times, it was De Wit who headed in the 1-1 from a cross from Martins Indi in the 70th minute.

Two minutes later Ernest Poku made it 2-1, with a left footed shot from the left side of the box to the bottom right corner.

Leonard de Beste scored for Quick Boys in the 90+7 mins to make it 2-2. AZ thought Myron van Brederode had scored the winning goal for them in the 97th minute. Sem van Duijn scored for Quick Boys in the 113th minute.
