Dutch Cup: Heracles cruise into semi-finals
AMSTERDAM, Feb 26 (Reuters) - Brazilian Everton scored a hat-trick to earn top-flight Heracles Almelo a comfortable 5-1 victory at second division side Haarlem in a Dutch Cup quarter-final on Tuesday. Giorgio Berkleef opened the scoring for Haarlem after five minutes, but Heracles replied with four first-half goals to settle the match and reach the semi-finals for the first time. Roda JC Kerkrade also reached the final four following a 3-1 win at second division side Dordrecht. Roland Lamah scored off a corner kick after 28 minutes to put Roda ahead, while Marcel de Jong doubled the lead six minutes into the second half. Ibad Muhamadu pulled one back on the hour but eight minutes before time Anouar Hadouir sealed the win for the 1997 and 2000 winners. Amateur side Quick Boys Katwijk will host NAC Breda on Wednesday, while second division team Zwolle travel to Feyenoord on Thursday.
