The Dutch youngsters, with Leon Simons, – former Dutch international – as coach, proved in all matches high quality qualifications both technical as tactical. The U19 KWC final showed quality korfball between Chinese Taipei and the Netherlands. At half time – after 20 minutes real playing time – the score was 6 – 13 and the difference was made as result of high scoring percentages of the Dutch team. In the second half the Dutch players continued their excellent match and extended the lead. The final whistle by referee Peter Busik showed 16 – 28 on the scoreboard.
