Saira 5 - 1 Chelwell

Clouds darkened the skies at L'Hort as 8082 spectators turned up for the match. Jürgen Etzdorf was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Olaf Jan Neumayer and Friedrich Fischer. After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, Saira decided to go with a 4-4-2 formation. They fielded: Peiró - Sort, Castellrós, San Sadurniño, Barcons - Dovalo, Grajal, Ruiz Guillén, Vinyals - Carballido, Sastre Martin.

Our studio analysts were correct. Chelwell has taken the field in a 4-4-2 alignment. Lineup: González-Mohíno - Farré, Yanez, Guijo, San Millán Díez - Vargas Rivera, da Grela, Civit, Peyronill - Mouré, Mejías.

The visitors' central defense should have had no trouble clearing the pass to P. Carballido, but the Saira player managed to shrug them off and fire a low shot that 5-holed the keeper to give his team the lead. 1 - 0! Saira's J. Vinyals was delighted to score as he saw his shot go between the legs of the advancing keeper and into the net, following some good attacking movement on the right wing. 2 - 0 after 32 minutes. Was that a pass or a bad touch? Either way, the inexperienced P. Ruiz Guillén almost gave Chelwell a goal, but luckily they couldn't capitalize on the mistake. J. Grajal dispatched a majestic long shot 38 minutes in, but missed the goal by a few yards. The teams went for the halftime break at 2 - 0. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Saira would have 65 percent possession in this half was spot on!

P. Carballido let loose a swerving effort from the right that the visitors' keeper did well to tip wide. X. San Sadurniño increased Saira's lead to 3 - 0, connecting with a hooked ball from the right. The away fans are claiming handball, to no avail. Saira put themselves up 4 - 0 when B. Sort broke through on the right, leaving the entire defensive delegation behind him. After this, you could see that Saira's players were mostly interested in killing time and holding on to their lead. R. Sastre Martin of Saira received a yellow card after 84 minutes for unsportsmanlike behavior. A beautiful, arcing corner kick from J. Farré found I. Mouré at the far post, soaring to meet the ball. The keeper is late and he's headed it in for 4 - 1! Saira's B. Sort struck his penalty well enough to beat the goalkeeper and extend the home team's lead to 5 - 1 after 86 minutes. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Saira had 65...65 percent possession. AH AH AH!

R. Sastre Martin performed admirably for Saira. I can't remember A. Peiró ever having a worse night than he just had. Most important Chelwell player was J. Farré. Speaking of stinking up the place, J. San Millán Díez sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. The match ends 5 - 1.
