Kurmju 1 - 4 B0n3s

Weather conditions were fairly good for soccer, and Kurmju pirksti Arena saw a turnout of 19951. All of Rīga was shut down for the day, as fans of both clubs came to the local rivalry game. Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Kurmju will go to battle in a 4-4-2 formation. The following players had been selected: van der Lem - Abadal, Coscelli, Fransson, Dedziņš - Candio, Naila, Della Ventura, Pūris - Kløvedal, Bencze.

Our studio analysts were correct. B0n3s has taken the field in a 3-5-2 alignment. The following players took the field: Calmans - Bērziņš, Gaisma, Brouka - Lanzana, Galviņš, Skalbergs, Baldzēns, Szalai - Matulis, Neiburgs.

Kurmju saw most attack opportunities on the wings by using their brilliant ability to push the attack in the right direction. B0n3s's R. Szalai sent an early cross that saw the defenders caught out of position and the alert R. Neiburgs was able to pounce and roll the ball past the hapless netminder to make the score 0 - 1. Big paper red cards were being held up by the opposing supporters with 7 minutes on the clock after J. Matulis's mistimed tackle from behind. The referee only showed the B0n3s player a yellow card though. With the scoreboard showing that 13 minutes had been played, B0n3s nearly put themselves up another goal after L. Skalbergs came through on the left. Fortunately for the home crowd, the keeper made the save. After several obvious shirt pulling incidents, B0n3s's L. Skalbergs got himself booked. 30 minutes into the match, K. Galviņš came through the middle and almost added to his team's lead, but the shot went wide. Kurmju mounted an inspired counter-attack down the right wing after 31 minutes, but M. Dedziņš was unable to convert from short range. L. Skalbergs somehow managed to break free of his man on the left wing and only needed a relatively easy finish to bring B0n3s's lead up to 0 - 2. It was 0 - 2 at the break. B0n3s set the tempo, maintaining 62 percent of possession.

After 55 minutes, a mistake by the home side's left defense allowed L. Skalbergs to get through. He outclassed the home side's keeper, adding another goal for the visitors. 0 - 3. B0n3s's players now seemed to think the job was done and acted more defensively, just waiting for the ref to blow the final whistle. Was that a pass or a bad touch? Either way, the inexperienced K. Galviņš almost gave Kurmju a goal, but luckily they couldn't capitalize on the mistake. The game had been going for 68 minutes when V. Bērziņš broke through on the right, upping the score to 0 - 4 for B0n3s, much to the home crowd's dismay. Kurmju made it 1 - 4 as M. Fransson knocked the corner kick to K. Bencze who whipped a low drive in off the far post. Gotta love friendly woodwork! Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that B0n3s would have 57 percent possession in this half was spot on!

Most important Kurmju player was T. Kløvedal. Speaking of stinking up the place, M. Fransson sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. B0n3s's best player was M. Baldzēns. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because J. Calmans seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The match ends 1 - 4.
