Ledinukai 1 - 0 FM

The weather was pretty good, and a crowd of 33113 had shown up at Lollipop'as for the match. Mats Engin was the appointed referee. Gentlemen prefer blondes and Ledinukai prefers a 5-3-2. Let's see how this plays out for them. The following players had been selected: Felix - Gliaudenis, Baršukaitis, Loussouarn, Infante, Debiasi - Frostenhult, Carlsen, Šilkauskis - Perlaitis, Popescu.

After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, FM decided to go with a 3-5-2 formation. They fielded: Uludüz - Černiatinas, Daučionas, Gavriliukas - Potel, Budavičius, Čelkis, Ilinčius, Pupalis - Dunner, Hazler.

Like the adage "bend but don't break", Ledinukai will rely on their titanic ability to counter-attack today. 16 minutes into the game, S. Dunner almost gave the visitors the lead, as he chipped a delicate lob over the keeper, but the ball glanced harmlessly off the crossbar. Always a threat, M. Popescu tore past his marker and placed the ball right at the feet of the waiting E. Perlaitis who should have easily scored for Ledinukai, but the ball went wide. Ledinukai's defense sent a ball soaring up the middle on a beautiful counter-attack with 29 minutes gone, but C. Carlsen's finish was met by the firm hands of the keeper. A swat on the tuchus is all it took to keep Ledinukai's K. Šilkauskis in the match after injuring his achilles tendon. The ball is in play and we're underway again after 34 minutes have been played. 0 - 0 was the score after the first half. The forty-five minutes were dominated by FM, with an impressive 70 percent possession of the ball.

With the clock showing 49 minutes played, a great pass from the defensive line of Ledinukai resulted in a counter-attack that was smoothly brought under control by E. Baršukaitis in the center of the opposition's penalty area, but his finish went high. Down the middle came C. Potel, making a fantastic play that nearly saw FM take the lead after 55 minutes, but L. Felix preserved the tie. E. Perlaitis seemed to be defying gravity as he elegantly headed in a goal for Ledinukai after a corner kick that was nicely executed by J. Infante. That makes it 1 - 0. After 59 minutes Ledinukai tried to use their counter-attacking skills. Unfortunately, M. Popescu's shot sailed wide after his break down the right. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that FM had 69...69 percent possession. AH AH AH!

Ledinukai's top performer was clearly M. Popescu. Speaking of stinking up the place, C. Carlsen sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. S. Dunner performed admirably for FM. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because S. Uludüz seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The match ends 1 - 0.
