BALLA 3 - 0 WVF37

Clouds darkened the skies at BALLA BALLA Arena as 37486 spectators turned up for the match. Aleks Gołek was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Gabrijel Udovič and Gabriel Dumitrescu. After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, BALLA decided to go with a 3-5-2 formation. The following players had been selected: Roque - Welschen, Rijsbergen, Ryczkowski - Bentvelt, Struycken, Vastbinder, Ritzen, Francken - Valken, Tranquilo.

Our studio analysts were correct. WVF37 has taken the field in a 3-5-2 alignment. The following players took the field: Chaves - Gavart, Ekkelenkamp, Demarco - Canestrari, Sombreireiro, Nica, Scheffer, Hardies - Sier, Monferrato.

The visitors' central defense should have had no trouble clearing the pass to N. Ritzen, but the BALLA player managed to shrug them off and fire a low shot that 5-holed the keeper to give his team the lead. 1 - 0! B. Rijsbergen will have Excedrin Headache number 5 after heading home the hard corner kick from N. Ritzen after 16 minutes of play. I'm sure that making the score 2 - 0 will assuage him a bit, though. It was 2 - 0 at the break. The forty-five minutes were dominated by BALLA, with an impressive 54 percent possession of the ball.

Maybe T. Gavart should join the aquatics team instead. He went down dramatically after 71 minutes, crying out with agony as he fell. The referee was not impressed, though, and showed him a yellow for diving. 74 minutes in, J. Monferrato made an incredible run up the middle and nearly reduced the home side's lead, but J. Roque refused to let the ball slip by him. A swift counter-attack by BALLA resulted in a free kick that N. Ritzen elegantly bent into the goal - 3 - 0! The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that BALLA had 55...55 percent possession. AH AH AH!

Most important BALLA player was K. Tranquilo. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by W. Welschen today. J. Sier performed admirably for WVF37. I can't remember N. Hardies ever having a worse night than he just had. The match ends 3 - 0.
