The 3821 fans in attendance at The Wurzel Nest were roasting in the hot sun. Mugur Popescu was the appointed referee. Our studio analysts were correct. Blackbirdz has taken the field in a 4-5-1 alignment. The following players had been selected: Charamofais - Ascue, Mulot, Violette, Tardini - Fruet, Armeli, Sivorn, Castellsir, Frost - Weismuller.

Gentlemen prefer blondes and Preciosa prefers a 5-4-1. Let's see how this plays out for them. Starters: Frieden - Kramm, Kowatsch, Lethmair, Flörsheim, Schönleiter - Rehdanz, Cunha, Winter-Moradi, Rigamonti - Kaindl.

With 11 minutes played R. Frost almost put the home team one ahead on a cross coming in from the right, but the shot went just wide. A. Weismuller will have Excedrin Headache number 5 after heading home the hard corner kick from F. Violette after 14 minutes of play. I'm sure that making the score 1 - 0 will assuage him a bit, though. It was a hot and sunny day, and several players seemed worn out. Maybe this was why M. Fruet found an unusual amount of space for his snappy footwork. Sometimes the only way to stop a counter-attack is with a foul. Blackbirdz took full advantage as F. Violette unleashed a rocket from the resulting free kick making it 2 - 0. It was 2 - 0 at the break. The battle in midfield was tight, with possession split evenly between the teams.

Preciosa had to make a substitution after 79 minutes. L. Schönleiter apparently was hit by a thrown bottle of Schlitz by one of the opposing players' fans, and now reeks of blood and bad beer. While the coach remonstrated with the side official about the situation, J. Fehrenbach finished his warmups and came on. M. Fruet's fine footwork caused nothing but headaches for J. Fehrenbach. The keeper wasn't fooled however, and confidently scooped up the ball. With 88 minutes played, Preciosa's T. Lethmair received a yellow card for challenging a play with his cleats first. The fierce heat made it important to save breath, and after a few swift runs F. Violette found it hard to get back into position. The home side's T. Mulot came close to extending the lead after 89 minutes. His shot came in from the right but M. Frieden managed to push it wide with his fingertips. Possession of the ball was split evenly between the teams during the forty-five minutes.

Most important Blackbirdz player was A. Weismuller. I can't remember N. Armeli ever having a worse night than he just had. The most outstanding Preciosa player was without a doubt F. Cunha. Speaking of stinking up the place, R. Winter-Moradi sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. The match ends 2 - 0.
