57457 spectators arrived at The Furnace, where weather conditions were pretty good for soccer. Jari Henttonen was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Rafael Arcos and Oliver Emil. The rivalry game had been the talk of Greater Manchester all week and fans of both teams could be seen throughout the stadium. Our studio analysts were correct. Dentbridge has taken the field in a 4-4-2 alignment. Lineup: Hughes - Duggan, Sângeorzan, Hansen, Raskin - Savén, Warner-Davies, Hooper, Dunk - Ræstad, Lee.

Gentlemen prefer blondes and Vibes prefers a 4-5-1. Let's see how this plays out for them. Starters: Miquelina - Leonard, Thorne, Bokholt, Windwehr - Zhelev, Änäkäinen, Smith, Paterson, Göransson - Jabin.

Many fans are yawning as Vibes appears to be more enamored of using their passable pressing skills to smother the opponents' attacks rather than create attacks of their own. But all will be forgiven if it achieves a good result. Dentbridge broke through on the left after 18 minutes, with K. Dunk firing at an impossible angle to give the home side a 1 - 0 lead. The referee showed Dentbridge's H. Ræstad the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. Vibes were close to putting the equalizer away after 28 minutes as the opposing defense lost the ball to N. Windwehr in a scuffle on the left of the goal, but in the end the ball was cleared over the sideline. D. Zhelev was the first to reach the corner kick, but his header was blocked by the keeper. However, Vibes's P. Paterson managed to get ahold of the rebound and scored to make it 1 - 1. Dentbridge took the lead 35 minutes in, after K. Warner-Davies's awkward, but ultimately successful, shot from the right. 2 - 1. Given a free kick from a ways out after 36 minutes, Dentbridge sent an arching ball into the penalty box. It was headed clear, but H. Ræstad was waiting just outside the area and fired it home to make it 3 - 1. After this, you could see that Dentbridge's players were mostly interested in killing time and holding on to their lead. 3 - 1 was the score after the first half. Dentbridge were doing a good job holding on to the ball, with 53 percent of possession.

Having turned the direction of play quickly, the Dentbridge counter-attack ended abruptly with a rough challenge after 49 minutes. The resulting free kick was a low shot into the area just in front of the keeper. However, the defense were on their toes and did not allow the opponents to reach the ball. B. Bokholt of Vibes received a yellow card after 64 minutes for unsportsmanlike behavior. The clock read 65 minutes and things were deteriorating for the away team as Dentbridge scored another to make it 4 - 1 after a left side attack resulted in a goal for S. Hooper. 69 minutes into the game, J. Änäkäinen replied with a fantastic free kick. The ball went in off the bottom of the bar to make it 4 to 2. Given a free kick in a difficult position after 77 minutes, Dentbridge tried a variation that they had practiced in training. The kick was sent into the area just in front of the keeper, however, the defense were on their toes and allowed no space for a finish. Vibes breathed new life into the game with an attempt to reduce the lead after 78 minutes, but the home side's defenders cleared the ball off the line, after a long shot coming in from the left rebounded off the crossbar. Dentbridge set the tempo, maintaining 54 percent of possession.

Dentbridge's best player was H. Ræstad. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by A. Duggan today. The most outstanding Vibes player was without a doubt N. Windwehr. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because B. Bokholt seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The match ends 4 - 2.
