The 50000 spectators at Balttels Arena were in for an afternoon of sunshine. Baltasar Cerda was the appointed referee. Our studio analysts were correct. Balttels has taken the field in a 3-4-3 alignment. The following players took the field: Răducanu - Mitrev, Wille-Wagner, Vojvoda - Voets, Oswald, Vache, Molarinho - Campelo, Querelle, Eschmarke.

The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and FLANNIGANS formed up in a 3-4-3 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. They fielded: Klucis - Zuur, Elsaesser, Bozgunbaev - Viken, Arca, De Rosa, Fachada - Tikhanov, Urbansson, Beitien.

It was an obvious ambition of Balttels to play a wide game with their magnificent ability to attack down the wings. F. Zuur seemed to be defying gravity as he elegantly headed in a goal for FLANNIGANS after a corner kick that was nicely executed by P. Arca. That makes it 0 - 1. The home team's task just got even harder after P. Arca buried the penalty kick. FLANNIGANS lead 0 - 2 after 14 minutes. After this, you could see that FLANNIGANS's players were mostly interested in killing time and holding on to their lead. 30 minutes into the game, Balttels's A. Querelle popped up out of nowhere, stole the ball and showed off his fantastic goal scoring skills. 1 - 2. 32 minutes into the game, FLANNIGANS worked the left side industriously creating several opportunities to add to their lead, but just couldn't apply the finishing touch. Halftime score was 1 - 2. FLANNIGANS set the tempo, maintaining 52 percent of possession.

M. Urbansson's speed was almost enough to give FLANNIGANS a goal after 63 minutes, but his nice pass to L. Tikhanov was not taken care of properly. Players in Balttels heard their coach's words ringing in their ears and steered their central attacks to the wings instead. No matter how hard he tried, M. Vojvoda just couldn't get past the visitors' right side defense 68 minutes in and eventually the ball was cleared away. Balttels's A. Querelle made a successful breakthrough on the left after 74 minutes and should have tied things up, but instead he sent it over the bar. A. Querelle charged down the left and had a wonderful opportunity to score the equalizer for Balttels, but the shot went well wide of the goal. With 79 minutes played, Balttels's A. Querelle made a rush down the left, leaving him free to put the 2 - 2 equalizer away. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Balttels, with an impressive 51 percent possession of the ball.

The most outstanding Balttels player was without a doubt T. Eschmarke. Speaking of stinking up the place, G. Răducanu sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. T. Beitien performed admirably for FLANNIGANS. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because A. Fachada seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The match ends 2 - 2.
