BPU 1 - 1 CSBJ

A brilliantly sunny day had enticed a crowd of 972 to Pythons Arena. Ben Massenbach was the appointed referee. The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and BPU formed up in a 4-4-2 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. Lineup: Bączyk - Žáčko, Riber, Angell, Hultblom - Narvarte, MacSween, Amstein, Quéguiner - Meléndez, Sánchez Rubio.

Our studio analysts were correct. CSBJ has taken the field in a 4-5-1 alignment. The following players had been selected: Guillet - Gachon, Duhaut, Fedoskov, Guillard - Aouadhi, Puget, Drieux, Bulak, Dória - Bourez.

Today, BPU's strategy involved concentrating on the flanks for their attacks, taking advantage of their outstanding ability. After 25 minutes, BPU were awarded a free kick. Rather than shooting straight at goal, the kicker went for an indirect variant which seemed to take his teammates a bit by surprise. P. Quéguiner did manage a finish, but from an awkward position, sending the ball out of bounds. 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, BPU's K. Angell finally got himself booked for a foul. 32 minutes into the match, CSBJ nearly took the lead, as S. Bourez broke through on the right. However, M. Bączyk made the save. After several obvious shirt pulling incidents, CSBJ's Y. Duhaut got himself booked. Halftime score was 0 - 0. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that BPU had 56...56 percent possession. AH AH AH!

After 55 minutes, CSBJ put themselves up 0 - 1, as Y. Drieux finished off a play from the left with a real rocket. 57 minutes into the game, A. MacSween had to leave the field due to a knee injury. In came T. Alexandrov. As BPU's captain went off, he handed the armband to T. Alexandrov. The referee showed BPU's J. Narvarte the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. After 66 minutes BPU were able to score the equalizing 1 - 1 goal when J. Meléndez picked up a pass coming in from the right and lofted it past the away team's keeper. CSBJ's T. Puget was shown a yellow card after 69 minutes for slicing down an opponent. Some great play up the middle by BPU led to a chance for J. Meléndez to get the go-ahead goal with 70 minutes played, but the shot hit the crossbar. BPU had a chance to take the lead after I. Sánchez Rubio's dazzling drive up the left, but the opportunity fizzled away as his shot went just over the bar with 76 minutes played. The forty-five minutes were dominated by BPU, with an impressive 61 percent possession of the ball.

BPU's best player was T. Alexandrov. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by M. Bączyk today. Most important CSBJ player was H. Aouadhi. Good thing P. Guillet isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. The match ends 1 - 1.
