Dark skies made the crowd of 1019 at elmagnifico a little nervous, but the rain held off. Silviu Popa was the appointed referee with assistance provided by IJsbrand Muijzer and Michael Limbach. The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and elgoléador formed up in a 4-4-2 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. The following players had been selected: Doorseele - Verheyen, Kudri, Hannon, Fack - Ward, Desimpelaere, Joris, Belouchi - Bryssinck, Ringoir.

Gentlemen prefer blondes and Duivels prefers a 5-4-1. Let's see how this plays out for them. They fielded: Kończyński - Taylor, Ferong, Hansson, Ţăranu, Coignard - Kapanga, Weratschnig, Graftiaux, Lombilla - Hormiga.

Like the adage "bend but don't break", elgoléador will rely on their passable ability to counter-attack today. elgoléador's defense sent a ball soaring up the middle on a beautiful counter-attack with 7 minutes gone, but B. Verheyen's finish was met by the firm hands of the keeper. After 17 minutes, the defensive line of elgoléador created a counter-attack through the middle that gave C. Ringoir a good look at goal, but his shot glanced harmlessly off the crossbar. Duivels took the lead after 24 minutes making the score 0 - 1. The keeper had no chance on W. Weratschnig's fine volley after a cross from the left. elgoléador's S. Belouchi lived up to his reputation for finding unexpected ways to get the ball in the net when he sent a nifty little pass over to C. Ringoir who scored for 1 - 1. This was a good period for the visitors, with several opportunities to take the lead, particularly when Á. Hormiga slipped through the left defense to come up alone against F. Doorseele, but the home side's keeper showed his lightning-fast reflexes. Maybe W. Weratschnig should join the aquatics team instead. He went down dramatically after 30 minutes, crying out with agony as he fell. The referee was not impressed, though, and showed him a yellow for diving. MY GOD, KING! K. Ferong JUST GAVE A DEFENDER AN RKO OUT OF NOWHERE! MY GOD ALMIGHTY HE'S BROKEN IN HALF! Duivels are going to have to play the rest of the game a man down! elgoléador's B. Verheyen went down after a savage challenge, but could continue playing after some medical attention. Duivels's A. Coignard could have put the guests one up 33 minutes in after chasing a through ball from the right, but F. Doorseele was as quick as a snake, grabbing the ball from under his nose. The teams went for the halftime break at 1 - 1. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Duivels, with an impressive 57 percent possession of the ball.

After 61 minutes, elgoléador's D. Ward surprised everyone as he managed to intercept a pass intended for the opposing keeper and flip it up and in, making the score 2 - 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, Duivels's J. Kapanga finally got himself booked for a foul. Due to a severely mistimed tackle, T. Bryssinck of elgoléador spent some time on the grass writhing in agony before he could get up and continue the game. With 75 minutes gone, I. Desimpelaere suddenly found himself completely free on the right wing when a counter-attack by elgoléador caught their opponents by surprise. Only a great save by the opposing keeper prevented him from scoring. B. Verheyen increased elgoléador's lead to 3 - 1, connecting with a hooked ball from the right. The away fans are claiming handball, to no avail. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Duivels had 52...52 percent possession. AH AH AH!

elgoléador's top performer was clearly I. Desimpelaere. I can't remember D. Ward ever having a worse night than he just had. Duivels's best player was W. Weratschnig. Speaking of stinking up the place, K. Hansson sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. The match ends 3 - 1.
