Dreamers 1 - 2 lopu

Clouds darkened the skies at Chuck Norris dream stadium as 23385 spectators turned up for the match. Our studio analysts were correct. Dreamers has taken the field in a 4-4-2 alignment. The following players had been selected: Silvestro - Larsen, Bogucki, Lācis, Rodríguez - Schilperoort, Mirošević, Shlyakhtenko, Schrama - Ben-Yaacov, Bælum.

After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, lopu decided to go with a 3-5-2 formation. Lineup: Rajala - Vergelis, Magarevich, Agiriano - Podsevalov, Charles, Murugov, Zīle, Veckungs - Lattimer, Gorenčič.

Dreamers saw most attack opportunities on the wings. lopu seemed to prefer attacking in the middle. With 31 minutes played, Dreamers's E. Bælum received a yellow card for challenging a play with his cleats first. The bleachers were silenced after 35 minutes when lopu's K. Veckungs put the guests ahead 0 - 1, following an attack on the right. It was obvious that Dreamers had instructions to attack on the wings instead of in the middle. The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 1. Dreamers were doing a good job holding on to the ball, with 55 percent of possession.

Some things can only be learned through experience, and J. Lācis should take his lesson to heart after nearly gifting lopu a goal after 55 minutes. J. Lācis pulled a rabbit out of his hat as he wove through the guest's entire central defense and put the 1 - 1 equalizer away after 61 minutes. lopu players heard their coach's words ringing in their ears and steered their wing attacks to the middle instead. lopu took the lead 63 minutes into the game, making the score 1 - 2 after some elegant movement down the middle. S. Gorenčič was the scorer. Dreamers's P. Bogucki attempted to equalize 64 minutes into the game, coming in from the right, but the ball hit the post and the defense dealt with the rebound easily. lopu were able to draw a foul with their counter-attacks, but the shot from K. Magarevich went into the arms of the keeper. It was obvious that lopu had instructions to attack in the middle when they directed a break on the wing into the center of the park. P. Agiriano was, after 68 minutes, almost able to extend the visitors' lead with a well placed diving header after the ball had looped into the center, but the home side's keeper A. Silvestro made the save. The statistics geek breathlessly ran into the press box to show lopu in control of the ball, with 52 percent possession. Thanks, Poindexter.

The most outstanding Dreamers player was without a doubt R. Schilperoort. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because Y. Ben-Yaacov seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The local beauty queen presented lopu's S. Gorenčič with a prize turducken for being named Man of the Match. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by K. Magarevich today. The match ends 1 - 2.
