It was another day of top-class action as the FIH Hockey Pro League continued in Amsterdam.

The Dutch women produced another dominant performance to thrill the home crowd, claiming a comprehensive 4-1 victory over New Zealand to assume top spot in the tournament standings above Argentina. There was no such joy for the Dutch men, however, who started in commanding fashion but were then edged out 4-1 in a shoot-out after the match finished 1-1.

Dutch to much for Kiwis
