It was an exceptionally sunny day for the crowd of 14839 that came out to The Messiah. Marc Launois was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Bozidar Bezic and Viktor Spiller. Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Waldos will go to battle in a 3-5-2 formation. They fielded: Valdenebro - Gousseau, Bruley, Blasch - Walker, Rozlach, Geluk, Berga, Roos - Wael, Gabet.

The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and fritangas formed up in a 3-5-2 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. The following players took the field: Münkel - Flögel, Sterringer, Truică - Rikman, Quattrini, Miljenović, Golemanov, Værnes - Márquez, Recabarren.

Waldos concentrated their attacks in the middle of the field, rather than on the wings. Down the middle came N. Flögel, making a fantastic play that nearly saw fritangas take the lead after 2 minutes, but J. Valdenebro preserved the tie. Waldos's coach was furious with M. Gousseau after he picked up a yellow for saying one too many words to the ref. The guests almost went up by a goal with 13 minutes elapsed when R. Márquez came through from the right. The shot bounced harmlessly off the post, though. Waldos fans held their breath as F. Rozlach gallivanted down the left side. He successfully avoided all challenges and fired home the go-ahead goal for 1 - 0! Central attacks were the recipe of the day for Waldos, and they were successfully passing the ball from the wing into the middle at the behest of their coach. Waldos's C. Walker saw his fine effort strike the top of the bar following some good work up the middle by his teammates 34 minutes in. Halftime score was 1 - 0. The statistics geek breathlessly ran into the press box to show fritangas in control of the ball, with 56 percent possession. Thanks, Poindexter.

Given a free kick from a ways out after 61 minutes, fritangas sent an arching ball into the penalty box. It was headed clear, but V. Golemanov was waiting just outside the area and fired it home to make it 1 - 1. Waldos had to make a substitution after 83 minutes. F. Roos apparently was hit by a thrown bottle of Schlitz by one of the opposing players' fans, and now reeks of blood and bad beer. While the coach remonstrated with the side official about the situation, S. Gottarelli finished his warmups and came on. Waldos were determined to attack in the middle, even their wing attacks ended up coming through the center. Big paper red cards were being held up by the opposing supporters with 85 minutes on the clock after S. Gottarelli's mistimed tackle from behind. The referee only showed the Waldos player a yellow card though. Unfortunately for fritangas, C. Truică was injured as the game became more physical, and he had to leave the field. I. Copeiro replaced him. As the captain was no longer on the field, M. Rikman took over the role for fritangas. One of many good passes from O. Værnes at the wing was received and skillfully taken care of by V. Recabarren, scoring the 1 - 2 goal for fritangas. R. Márquez's technique was perfect on this sunny day and led to some beautiful tricks that fooled the defense. The forty-five minutes were dominated by fritangas, with an impressive 54 percent possession of the ball.

The local beauty queen presented Waldos's J. Geluk with a prize turducken for being named Man of the Match. It wasn't Star Wars night, but S. Gottarelli sure smelled like bantha poodoo. Most important fritangas player was M. Miljenović. Good thing S. Sterringer isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. The match ends 1 - 2.
