Victory for KV Mechelen

Published on 30/07/2014

KV Mechelen came back from a goal down to beat Racing Genk 3-1 on Sunday afternoon.

Hyland opened the scoring for Racing Genk 8 minutes into the game. However, this failed to dishearten the home side and Malinwa equalised on 23 minutes through Hanni.
The turning point in the game came just over 5 minutes from half time when KV Mechelen, with ISM-players Glenn Claes, Jason Adesanya, Laurens Paulussen, Tim Matthys, Wannes Van Tricht and Mats Rits, scored twice in a minute through Adesanya and Claes.

Racing Genk played much of the second half down to 10 men after Hyland was given his marching orders after having been given his second yellow card of the game on 54 minutes.

Buffel came the closest to pulling one back for Genk, but it was not to be and the match ended 3-1 in KV Mechelen’s favour.
