Kings 5 - 0 TXELAS

It was an exceptionally sunny day for the crowd of 3210 that came out to Dgeneration X Stadium. Yke Helleman was the appointed referee. Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Kings will go to battle in a 3-4-3 formation. The following players took the field: Van Thillo - Dudley, Römisch, Kapataidakis - Fernande, Martins, Pâslaru, Meškić - Mišun, Gandarillas, Brotfeld.

The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and TXELAS formed up in a 3-5-2 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. Starters: Ciudad - Watanabe, Zolezzi, 尾崎 (Ozaki) - Samanamud, Esponda, Victor Jaya, González, Valdivia - Pacahuala, Panta.

Kings seemed to prefer attacking in the middle, using their outstanding ability to great effect. TXELAS clearly preferred using their brilliant ability to attack in the middle today. It was obvious that Kings had instructions to attack in the middle when they directed a break on the wing into the center of the park. C. Brotfeld gave Kings 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! Kings solidified their lead at the 36 minute mark, as X. Gandarillas snaked the ball through the central line of defense and finished for 2 - 0. After 38 minutes, a couple of quick and successful challenges followed by a shot from just outside the penalty area by X. Gandarillas might have resulted in another goal for Kings. However, J. Ciudad made a spectacular save. M. Mišun was not content with his team's lead, and tried to extend it 39 minutes into the game after a nice run through the middle, but his shot went wide. TXELAS's W. Valdivia was shown a yellow card for standing over the ball and blocking an opponent's quick free kick after 40 minutes. 2 - 0 was the score after the first half. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Kings had 54...54 percent possession. AH AH AH!

TXELAS had a fair chance to reply after 51 minutes due to some fine moves down the left, but in the end J. Samanamud was slow to keep up with the play and was unable to make it into the penalty box to apply a finish. Cheers filled the stadium as V. Römisch broke through the visitors' central defense to put away the 3 - 0 goal for Kings. Several players seemed a little dazed by the warm weather, and were repeatedly tricked by the clever and agile J. Zolezzi. Kings put themselves up 4 - 0 when V. Römisch broke through on the right, leaving the entire defensive delegation behind him. Kings's players now seemed to think the job was done and acted more defensively, just waiting for the ref to blow the final whistle. X. Gandarillas didn't pace himself at all, and after a series of daring offensive runs he was too tired to help out in the defensive play. The Kings free kick 80 minutes into the match seemed wasted, as the shot was both short and off target. But it was no mistake - M. Mišun seemingly came out of nowhere and had miles of space to control the ball and pick his spot. That's 5 - 0! Kings were doing a good job holding on to the ball, with 52 percent of possession.

Most important Kings player was Ş. Pâslaru. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by B. Van Thillo today. E. Esponda performed admirably for TXELAS. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because J. Ciudad seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The match ends 5 - 0.
