The 34571 spectators at Knochenspalter Arena were in for an afternoon of sunshine. Klaas Karrer was the appointed referee. After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, BB e.V. decided to go with a 3-4-3 formation. The following players had been selected: Tingleff - Eichler, Rübenach, Fürstenrecht - Korpan-Wenzl, Weilhelm, Pieprzyk, Bergtorp - Frietsch, Knechtl, Cepuch.

Our studio analysts were correct. Garbsen has taken the field in a 3-5-2 alignment. The following players took the field: Ruffat - Boga, Corrigan, Montecchiani - Daime, Wielgus, Coco, Meherg, Hoeness - Fürhacker, Casasola.

Garbsen saw most attack opportunities on the wings by using their mythical ability to push the attack in the right direction. Slack defending gave BB e.V. a chance to take the lead with 4 minutes played, but S. Rübenach's cross from the left flank was met gratefully by the opposition who cleared it to safety. Though it was beautiful soccer, the home crowd did not enjoy R. Daime's goal after a run down the left with 5 minutes on the clock. Garbsen lead, 0 - 1. With 12 minutes on the clock, BB e.V.'s P. Cepuch found an opening in the visitors' left side, but his shot was handled easily by the keeper. Garbsen's counter-attacks created a good chance for N. Casasola on the right after 13 minutes, but he could only look on with dismay as his strike rebounded off the crossbar. With 24 minutes played, BB e.V.'s G. Frietsch made a rush down the left, leaving him free to put the 1 - 1 equalizer away. The teams went for the halftime break at 1 - 1. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that BB e.V. had 52...52 percent possession. AH AH AH!

It was obvious that Garbsen had instructions to attack on the wings instead of in the middle. 78 minutes into the match, Garbsen's M. Hoeness demonstrated his running prowess as he raced past his defender and passed the ball to N. Casasola who chipped it in for 1 - 2. Garbsen had a good opportunity to attack in the middle, but remembered their instructions to go down the wing instead. 79 minutes into the match, the visitors put themselves ahead 1 - 3 as M. Hoeness finished off an attack from the left with a spectacular bicycle kick. Garbsen's M. Hoeness received a ball slotted perfectly through the home side's central defense after 80 minutes, and chipped it past the helpless keeper to increase the lead to 1 - 4. The away fans won't regret traveling for this one! Oh, the humanity! Garbsen's H. Corrigan dropped as if a burning zeppelin fell on him. He may never be the same again. You may want to hide your eyes for the replay. G. Rovedi came in as a replacement after 85 minutes had been played. M. Meherg was handed the Garbsen captain's armband. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that BB e.V. would have 53 percent possession in this half was spot on!

The most outstanding BB e.V. player was without a doubt M. Knechtl. Speaking of stinking up the place, S. Rübenach sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. D. Fürhacker performed admirably for Garbsen. I can't remember R. Daime ever having a worse night than he just had. The match ends 1 - 4.
