Mote 1 - 3 valencio

The weather was pretty good, and a crowd of 17000 had shown up at folens arena for the match. Roope Mäntykangas was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Patrick Houmøller and Wiebe Hovinga. People from all over West-Vlaanderen had joined up for the rivalry game. Our studio analysts were correct. Mote has taken the field in a 4-4-2 alignment. Lineup: Pohjolainen - Vanwiddingen, Beiersdörfer, Bertelsen, Bel - Morsiani, Cabral, Hagen, George - Lodares, Picó.

The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and valencio formed up in a 3-5-2 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. The following players had been selected: Lipkens - Grosse, Meesters, Paz - Bekkelund, García de Carranque, Willem, Krotkov, Strube - Mashiach, Høyer.

valencio went for a narrow approach, using their formidable ability to focus their attacks down the middle. The valencio free kick 12 minutes into the match seemed wasted, as the shot was both short and off target. But it was no mistake - J. Høyer seemingly came out of nowhere and had miles of space to control the ball and pick his spot. That's 0 - 1! 0 - 1 was the score after the first half. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that valencio would have 61 percent possession in this half was spot on!

The crowd roared in delight as S. Hagen finished off a spectacular series of plays up the middle to even the score for Mote after 47 minutes. 1 - 1. 55 minutes into the game, J. Høyer was a hair's width away from giving valencio the lead with a shot from the left. A timely dive by M. Pohjolainen saved the home team on this occasion. The visiting N. Bekkelund was booed thoroughly by the home crowd 58 minutes into the game, after he broke through the middle and scored, resulting in the visitors taking the lead. 1 - 2 was the score. D. Mashiach came close to extending the visitors' lead when he found himself completely unmarked in front of the goal after a pass through the middle, but his attempted chip over M. Pohjolainen just kept rising and landed in the relieved crowd. After 60 minutes, the defensive line of Mote created a counter-attack through the middle that gave A. Lodares a good look at goal, but his shot glanced harmlessly off the crossbar. With 65 minutes played, valencio put themselves up 1 - 3 after an attack from the right, caused by a defensive blunder. The scorer was J. Høyer. valencio set the tempo, maintaining 62 percent of possession.

The most outstanding Mote player was without a doubt R. Picó. Speaking of stinking up the place, E. Beiersdörfer sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. D. Krotkov performed admirably for valencio. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because G. Lipkens seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The match ends 1 - 3.
