Zwolle beat Ajax 5-1 in Dutch Cup final

ROTTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) PEC Zwolle won its first Dutch Cup title by stunning Ajax 5-1 in the final Sunday, with Ryan Thomas and Guyon Fernandez scoring two goals each.

Ajax had a good start to the match as Ricardo van Rhijn opened the scoring in the fifth minute. But the game was then halted after Ajax fans threw fireworks onto the field, many of them landing around the team's goal.

When play resumed around 30 minutes later, Thomas scored twice in four minutes to silence the Ajax fans. Fernandez followed with a shot under goalkeeper Kenneth Vermeer and he headed in the fourth before halftime. Bram van Polen scored the fifth soon after play resumed.
