AMSTERDAM (AP) -- Italian striker Graziano Pelle scored twice to lead Feyenoord past PSV Eindhoven 3-1 in the Dutch league on Sunday.
PSV midfielder Adam Maher opened the scoring in the 21st minute, but Feyenoord's 19-year-old winger Jan-Paul Boetius equalized shortly before halftime.
Pelle put Feyenoord ahead from the penalty spot in the 54th then missed a second penalty four minutes later when he struck the post after PSV's Jeffrey Bruma was sent off. Pelle made up for the miss in the 65th when he took a pass from Boetius, evaded a defender, and scored his second.
Feyenoord moved up to fifth place in the league with the win.
In other games Sunday, league leader Vitesse and second-placed Ajax both won easily, Vitesse beating SC Cambuur 3-0 and Ajax winning in The Hague against ADO 4-0.
