Defending champion PSV edges AZ Alkmaar, Feyenoord stays top

AMSTERDAM (AP) " Defending champion PSV Eindhoven edged AZ Alkmaar 1-0 Sunday to make it two straight wins at the start of the new Eredivisie season.

Hector Moreno headed home a cross by Jetro Willems to seal victory in Eindhoven.

Feyenoord, seeking its first Dutch league title since 1999, remained atop the standings on goal difference after a hard-fought 2-0 victory over FC Twente.

Of the traditional big three clubs, Ajax was first to drop points, only managing a 2-2 draw with Roda JC Kerkrade, which salvaged a point Saturday thanks to an injury-time equalizer by Tom van Hyfte.

Feyenoord, PSV, ADO The Hague and Excelsior Rotterdam are the only clubs to have held onto 100-percent records after two matches of the season.
