Overcast weather free of rain made for a turnout of 56911 at Noobie's dome today. Paris Theiler was the appointed referee. After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, seconda decided to go with a 5-4-1 formation. Starters: Reina - Citti, Galletta, Montagna, Fortis, La Porta - Obidowski, Abakumov, Decembrino, Serafini - Lapajna.

Gentlemen prefer blondes and Gagliardi prefers a 3-5-2. Let's see how this plays out for them. They fielded: Kraľovanský - Wiktorko, Antonopoulos, Winick - 兴宗 (Xingzong), Cardamone, Della Valle, Schönbeck, Alberti - Morosan, Jensen.

Using their brilliant skill, seconda pushed their attacks towards the wings. Gagliardi displayed their ability to play creatively. M. Wiktorko will have Excedrin Headache number 5 after heading home the hard corner kick from F. Morosan after 14 minutes of play. I'm sure that making the score 0 - 1 will assuage him a bit, though. Due to some great work on the right wing seconda's N. Citti was able to even the score 32 minutes in to 1 - 1. After several obvious shirt pulling incidents, Gagliardi's P. Alberti got himself booked. seconda could have put themselves ahead after 35 minutes but V. Abakumov mishit a volley on a ball coming in from the right. Big paper red cards were being held up by the opposing supporters with 37 minutes on the clock after L. Serafini's mistimed tackle from behind. The referee only showed the seconda player a yellow card though. Oh dear - the keeper's made a mess of that one. The crowd was very disappointed after he let B. Jensen get the go-ahead goal with a speculative shot from the right after 38 minutes. 1 - 2. 1 - 2 was the halftime score. The forty-five minutes were dominated by seconda, with an impressive 60 percent possession of the ball.

seconda's I. Obidowski attempted to equalize 57 minutes into the game, coming in from the right, but the ball hit the post and the defense dealt with the rebound easily. Some hard work on the right gave seconda a wonderful opportunity to level the score after 62 minutes, and L. Serafini stepped up to the challenge, netting the 2 - 2 goal. The home crowd breathed a collective sigh of relief when G. Cardamone was unable to give the visitors the go-ahead goal after his attack from the left in minute 64. Attacking on the wings was the theme of the day for seconda, and they were successfully passing the ball outside from the middle. After 74 minutes of play, L. Serafini gave the home team a 3 - 2 lead after an attack coming in from the right. Maybe due to the uphill battle the team was facing, the Gagliardi manager looked to change things around. After 80 minutes, B. Jensen and F. Morosan swapped positions on the field. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that seconda would have 61 percent possession in this half was spot on!

seconda's best player was V. Abakumov. Speaking of stinking up the place, A. Fortis sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. Most important Gagliardi player was B. Jensen. I can't remember D. Antonopoulos ever having a worse night than he just had. The match ends 3 - 2.
