In the 1B Pro League, Deinze missed the opportunity to only become second. Deinze had to make peace at home with a 3-3 draw with Lommel.
After defeating Waasland-Beveren and Lierse, Deinze had the opportunity to move to second place in the standings, behind the inaccessible Westerlo. The home team had to beat Lommel for that.
This scenario seemed to be in the works when Deinze was already 3-1 after half an hour, thanks to three goals from Lennart Mertens. In between, Thordarson scolded visitors.
But Deinze handed that bonus over after the break. Lommel striker Arthur Sells scored another point for the visitors with two goals. Not much has changed in the rankings this way, leader Westerlo won again by the end of the week.
Objectives: 11′ Mertens 1-0, 18′ Mertens 2-0, 19′ Thordarson 2-1, 29′ Mertens 3-1, 57′ Sales 3-2, 65′ Sales 3-3
