YCFC1985 4 - 1 Xico

Weather conditions were fairly good for soccer, and YCFC1985 Arena saw a turnout of 5528. Adam Umkehrer-Neudeck was the appointed referee. Our studio analysts were correct. YCFC1985 has taken the field in a 4-4-2 alignment. Starters: Keener - Sawyer, Hull, McGory, Dye - Maroon, Smith, Phillips, Edwards - Das, Lambert.

After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, Xico decided to go with a 4-4-2 formation. The following players had been selected: Turnhill - 興傑 (Xingjie), Schofield, Heffernan, Coward - Jacobi, Tann, Helmore, Hector - Heafield, Terrell.

An accurate cross from YCFC1985's J. Maroon was met with a wonderful off-balance header from J. Edwards, hitting the inside base of the post before curling up into the back of the net like a dog in front of a fire for 1 - 0. D. Terrell came close to leveling the score 10 minutes into the game, as he was set up with a through ball coming in from the left, but his shot hit the post. After 18 minutes, YCFC1985's R. Hull successfully broke up a pass with his face. Instinctively, he got up again only to unintentionally use his now-throbbing schnozz to break up a second pass. As he was carted off for a concussion check, R. Basu ran onto the field to take his place. After a play down the right 27 minutes into the match, YCFC1985's J. Das unleashed a ferocious shot that smashed into the roof of the net - after going over the crossbar. YCFC1985's N. McGory was shown a yellow card after 29 minutes for slicing down an opponent. J. Das could have put YCFC1985 up one more, but he fired into the side netting after breaking free on the left after 34 minutes. It was 1 - 0 at the break. YCFC1985 were doing a good job holding on to the ball, with 56 percent of possession.

After 47 minutes of play, YCFC1985's N. McGory unexpectedly kicked the ball with reverse spin, and from no angle at all it ended up at the feet of J. Maroon who had an easy tap-in for 2 - 0. I. Heafield showed that Xico weren't done, putting the ball in the net after an opportunistic attack from the right side 57 minutes into the game. YCFC1985 solidified their lead at the 70 minute mark, as J. Maroon snaked the ball through the central line of defense and finished for 3 - 1. A swat on the tuchus is all it took to keep YCFC1985's J. Maroon in the match after injuring his achilles tendon. The ball is in play and we're underway again after 71 minutes have been played. A. Lambert increased YCFC1985's lead to 4 - 1, connecting with a hooked ball from the right. The away fans are claiming handball, to no avail. B. Helmore could've grabbed a goal for Xico 82 minutes in when he got a pass from the left putting him free of the home side's defense, but he was unable to take advantage of the situation. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that YCFC1985 had 60...60 percent possession. AH AH AH!

YCFC1985's best player was J. Das. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by P. Smith today. The most outstanding Xico player was without a doubt L. Hector. Good thing O. Tann isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. The match ends 4 - 1.
