AMSTERDAM - Dutch champions AZ Alkmaar scored three goals in the first half-hour before settling their first Dutch Super Cup win with a 5-1 thrashing of Heerenveen on Saturday. Australian international Brett Holman opened the scoring for Alkmaar after 15 minutes when he netted a fine cross from Maarten Martens who broke through on the left flank. Last season's top scorer Mounir El Hamdaoui doubled the lead nine minutes later after a combination by Stijn Schaars and Jeremain Lens, and Martens got the third four minutes later with a 25-metre shot. Michal Papadopolous pulled one back for the cup winners on the hour but Lens struck twice to complete the rout.
