Butkuts 2 - 2 Kunie

Clouds darkened the skies at Tanja Dome as 50038 spectators turned up for the match. Álvaro Grass was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Peter-Jan Brozius and Ivan Fabricius. Our studio analysts were correct. Butkuts has taken the field in a 4-5-1 alignment. Lineup: Lohne - Procee, Blitterswijk, Vancāns, Cajot - van den Hoorn, Pinna, Ciorescu, Metsers, Schaafsma - Monnoye.

The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and Kunie formed up in a 4-4-2 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. The following players took the field: Nifenecker - van Steensel, Diago, Nichols, Eylon - Marbizza, Wensveen, Vles, Brugiotti - Castellanos, Wotte.

Using their supernatural counter-attacking abilities was the strategy of choice for Kunie today. N. Wotte's speed is always a threat when he gets a little room to move, and this time was no different as he broke free of his man to send an on-target through ball to A. Castellanos who knocked it in for Kunie. 0 - 1! A beautiful, arcing corner kick from B. Metsers found L. Cajot at the far post, soaring to meet the ball. The keeper is late and he's headed it in for 1 - 1! After more pushing and shoving than a pack of helicopter moms trying to get the last appointment for their snowflakes to see the Easter Bunny, Kunie's C. Nichols finally got himself booked for a foul. Kunie mounted an inspired counter-attack down the right wing after 23 minutes, but C. Nichols was unable to convert from short range. Big paper red cards were being held up by the opposing supporters with 29 minutes on the clock after G. Vles's mistimed tackle from behind. The referee only showed the Kunie player a yellow card though. Parents shielded their children's eyes as Butkuts's A. Ciorescu left the field on a stretcher from a studs-first challenge. Oh good night - his thigh is ripped open! It looks like a pack of zombies got a hold of him! R. van Koningsbrugge took his place on the pitch. Halftime score was 1 - 1. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Butkuts had 59...59 percent possession. AH AH AH!

Some quick footwork on the left side of the field 63 minutes into the match left Kunie's M. Brugiotti completely free to score. 1 - 2 for the visitors. After 75 minutes Butkuts were able to score the equalizing 2 - 2 goal when B. Metsers picked up a pass coming in from the right and lofted it past the away team's keeper. Butkuts were doing a good job holding on to the ball, with 59 percent of possession.

Butkuts's top performer was clearly E. Lohne. Speaking of stinking up the place, L. Cajot sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. Most important Kunie player was A. Wensveen. Good thing F. Marbizza isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. The match ends 2 - 2.
