Jozy Altidore scored twice to help AZ Alkmaar crush amateur side SWZ/Boso Sneek 4-1 in the Dutch Cup third round Thursday.

The U.S. striker capped his team's scoring after Johann Berg Gudmundsson tallied two goals on either side of the break, with the home side's reply coming from Erolind Derguti.

Eerste Divisie side Den Bosch, meanwhile, sprang a big surprise in the third round of the KNVB Beker, beating top-flight leaders FC Twente 2-1 at De Grolsch Veste.

Denny Landzaat's 17th-minute penalty gave Twente the edge, but the dismissal of Dedryck Boyata seven minutes later proved its downfall.

Joey Brock leveled things up after 38 minutes and Tom van Weert then gave Den Bosch the lead after 62 minutes.

A miserable evening for the home side was capped when it was reduced to nine men with a last-minute red card for Luc Castaignos.

Feyenoord also beat amateur opposition with a 4-0 rout of Rotterdam rivals XerxesDZB.

The Eredivisie side had to wait an hour to take the lead through an Anthony Bentem own goal before strikes from Terence Kongolo, Ruud Vormer and Lex Immers (penalty) gave the scoreline a one-sided look.

Ramon Zomer scored the only goal as Heerenveen edged out third-tier Hollandia 1-0.
