brezimena 3 - 3 nore

The local marching band welcomed a crowd of 36143 to brezimena Arena. Stefan Gustavsson was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Fernand Manfait and Esa Tuupanen. Our studio analysts were correct. brezimena has taken the field in a 3-5-2 alignment. Starters: Roncato - Tschudi, Albrecht, Klamm - Perše, Kokot, Čuk, Simšič, van Diest - Svěchota, Vrzić.

The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and nore formed up in a 5-3-2 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. The following players took the field: Pohleven - Gartnar, Vombergar, Di Vaio, Plaznik, Mikiš - Nahtigal, Jermaniš, Topaz - Tanjič, Tekavčič.

brezimena clearly preferred using their ability to attack in the middle today. Counter-attacking seemed to be the preferred strategy of nore. The coach of nore wanted to try to mix things up after 2 minutes, and gave new tactical instructions. After 5 minutes cheers broke out as F. Vrzić found his way through the guests' central defensive line, rattling the 1 - 0 goal in off the woodwork for brezimena. With clinical precision, the cross from winger M. Topaz found its way to V. Tekavčič's head, and a screaming header gave nore a goal after 28 minutes played. The scoreboard read 1 - 1. nore's D. Vombergar gave the visitors a 1 - 2 lead after 31 minutes with a superb strike from the right. After 32 minutes, there was a bit of a mixup on the field as nore found themselves out of position and their organization level dropped to solid. A thrilling play through the middle after 33 minutes gave nore's M. Gartnar a chance to increase the lead, and he happily obliged. The score was then 1 - 3. The home side worked their way through the middle and almost got one back when R. Čuk tried to sneak the ball past the keeper. However, T. Pohleven was too alert for that! brezimena were determined to attack in the middle, even their wing attacks ended up coming through the center. brezimena's N. Tschudi was shown a yellow card for standing over the ball and blocking an opponent's quick free kick after 41 minutes. nore's D. Vombergar had to be stretchered off the field due to injury. Unfortunately, the stretcher posse dropped him then fell on his injured leg, injuring him further and causing embarrassment for the medical staff. In came O. Acosta to replace him. O. Acosta really should have scored when he was chosen by fate to confront a wide open goal following a great flick by A. Di Vaio after a corner. A swat on the tuchus is all it took to keep brezimena's F. Vrzić in the match after injuring his achilles tendon. The ball is in play and we're underway again after 43 minutes have been played. 1 - 3 was the halftime score. The forty-five minutes were dominated by brezimena, with an impressive 64 percent possession of the ball.

nore's coach went over the strategy again during the break, and after that his players had excellent organization. brezimena's H. van Diest got the home crowd going bananas when he finished off a left wing bull rush, reducing the away team's lead to 2 - 3. A series of fine plays up the middle should have led to a goal for brezimena, but F. Vrzić's shot went over the bar. nore's counter-attacks created a good chance for M. Topaz on the right after 67 minutes, but he could only look on with dismay as his strike rebounded off the crossbar. A beautiful, arcing corner kick from I. Klamm found F. Vrzić at the far post, soaring to meet the ball. The keeper is late and he's headed it in for 3 - 3! 77 minutes into the game, nore had difficulty finding their positions and their organization dropped to solid. With 80 minutes gone, A. Mikiš suddenly found himself completely free on the right wing when a counter-attack by nore caught their opponents by surprise. Only a great save by the opposing keeper prevented him from scoring. The statistics geek breathlessly ran into the press box to show brezimena in control of the ball, with 62 percent possession. Thanks, Poindexter.

brezimena's top performer was clearly J. Kokot. Good thing H. van Diest isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. The most outstanding nore player was without a doubt V. Tekavčič. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by O. Acosta today. The match ends 3 - 3.
