4129 spectators arrived at Ñeco Team Arena, where weather conditions were pretty good for soccer. Enrico Vangelisti was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Gigi Casadio and Krescht Schaack. Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Ñeco will go to battle in a 3-5-2 formation. They fielded: Solana - Aranda, Ruiz, Cebada - Vega, Ayala, Lorenzo, Cabrera, Lazo - Haugen, Anton.

Gentlemen prefer blondes and Llamas CF prefers a 3-5-2. Let's see how this plays out for them. The following players had been selected: Quintana - Layton, Choque, Forte - Romero, Engativá, Lucić, Vallone, Jara Lunghi - Hurtado, López Gil.

Ñeco clearly preferred using their excellent ability to attack in the middle today. For their match strategy, Llamas CF had decided to use their passable ability to counter-attack whenever possible. C. Vega gave Ñeco the 1 - 0 lead, as he successfully challenged the guests' central defenders, then placed the ball at the keeper's right post – what a clinical finish! The home team will be cursing N. Jara Lunghi for weeks; he finished off a great pass from the left, knocking it past the keeper without a problem 9 minutes in. It's anyone's game now! 1 - 1. D. Anton is making an astonishing dash. The fans are chanting his name. You can hear it reverberate around the stadium. Now a manic sprint up the middle and into the box. Oh! He's thrown open the door! He's thrown open the door, shot the ball through, and slammed the door shut on Mr. Tumnus! Ñeco has taken the lead 25 minutes into the match, 2 to 1. There'll be no Turkish Delight after the match for the keeper! D. Anton increased Ñeco's lead to 3 - 1, connecting with a hooked ball from the right. The away fans are claiming handball, to no avail. Ñeco's E. Haugen somehow missed a penalty after 29 minutes, much to the crowd's disappointment. 3 - 1 was the score after the first half. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Ñeco had 55...55 percent possession. AH AH AH!

Ñeco put themselves up 4 - 1 when E. Lazo broke through on the right, leaving the entire defensive delegation behind him. Ñeco's E. Haugen had to watch the rest of the game from the sidelines, after twisting his ankle with 56 minutes gone. J. Esterhazy was the replacement. The visitors replied 63 minutes into the game, reducing the lead to 4 - 2, as B. Lucić dashed up the middle and chipped the ball over the home team's keeper. With 64 minutes played, J. Esterhazy could have brought this one home for Ñeco as he charged up on the left, but his hooked ball went just a bit too high. J. Lorenzo almost put Ñeco ahead another goal when he curled a free kick over the defensive wall and almost into the net, but the visitors' keeper got there just in time to knock it wide. Ñeco had a good opportunity to attack on the wing, but remembered their instructions to go for middle instead. Cheers filled the stadium as J. Cabrera broke through the visitors' central defense to put away the 5 - 2 goal for Ñeco. After this, you could see that Ñeco's players were mostly interested in killing time and holding on to their lead. With 74 minutes gone, Llamas CF replied and reduced the lead to 5 - 3. I. Vallone scored after a marvelous cross from the left. Ñeco were doing a good job holding on to the ball, with 55 percent of possession.

Ñeco's top performer was clearly J. Esterhazy. Speaking of stinking up the place, J. Ruiz sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. Llamas CF's best player was N. Jara Lunghi. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because P. Choque seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The match ends 5 - 3.
