brezimena 1 - 0 Star

Dark skies made the crowd of 53793 at brezimena Arena a little nervous, but the rain held off. Lars Wartensl was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Alessandro Benvegnù and Jaakko Kurikka. After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, brezimena decided to go with a 3-5-2 formation. The following players took the field: Roncato - Klamm, Albrecht, Tschudi - Mazuchowski, Kokot, Čuk, Simšič, Perše - Podoprigorinas, Vrzić.

Our studio analysts were correct. Star has taken the field in a 4-3-3 alignment. Lineup: Riegler - Krašna, Hribar, Haklc, Košmerlj - Eler, Verhovec, Jež - Zelenik, Kriisa, Kašnar.

Star were relying on their ability to counter-attack. With 35 minutes played E. Simšič almost put the home team one ahead on a cross coming in from the right, but the shot went just wide. Star's defense sent a ball soaring up the middle on a beautiful counter-attack with 36 minutes gone, but R. Kašnar's finish was met by the firm hands of the keeper. With 40 minutes gone, a long pass from the defense of Star resulted in a counter-attack that set R. Verhovec free through the middle, but the keeper made a spectacular diving save. Everyone had expected a shot from the free kick 42 minutes into the game, but brezimena sent the ball sideways instead, giving W. Mazuchowski a clear look at goal with no wall in his way. He sent it through the keeper's legs for 1 - 0! The teams went for the halftime break at 1 - 0. The statistics geek breathlessly ran into the press box to show brezimena in control of the ball, with 73 percent possession. Thanks, Poindexter.

brezimena's V. Podoprigorinas saw his fine effort strike the top of the bar following some good work up the middle by his teammates 55 minutes in. Star's counter-attacks created a good chance for A. Hribar on the right after 56 minutes, but he could only look on with dismay as his strike rebounded off the crossbar. S. Albrecht let loose a swerving effort from the right that the visitors' keeper did well to tip wide. Star needed a fresh pair of legs on the field, and after 68 minutes J. Jež made way for B. Gospić. The bench was restless, and with 80 minutes gone Star's coach gave I. Benčina the opportunity to try to change the team's fortunes. M. Zelenik reluctantly left the field. The Star captaincy was handed to T. Kriisa. brezimena set the tempo, maintaining 68 percent of possession.

The most outstanding brezimena player was without a doubt R. Čuk. I can't remember W. Mazuchowski ever having a worse night than he just had. The local beauty queen presented Star's T. Kriisa with a prize turducken for being named Man of the Match. It wasn't Star Wars night, but D. Eler sure smelled like bantha poodoo. The match ends 1 - 0.
