The 1998 fans in attendance at Frankensteins Höhle were roasting in the hot sun. Agustín Morales was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Felix Riemhofer and Placido Ginex. Our studio analysts were correct. Rhino´s has taken the field in a 4-4-2 alignment. The following players took the field: Halasek - Mössinger, Murer, Henche, Lux - Brabrinke, Anklin, Schum, Noyens - Deguai, Egedal.

The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and Birmensdorf formed up in a 3-5-2 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. The following players had been selected: Staal - Plaster, Ściborowski, Ayyıldız - Kretzer, Gazziero, Chalklin, Leist, Honsberger - Perälampi, Hrabinský.

Today, Rhino´s's strategy involved concentrating on the flanks for their attacks, taking advantage of their brilliant ability. After 3 minutes, Birmensdorf's E. Gazziero made his way through the middle and nonchalantly placed the ball out of the keeper's reach, putting the visitors up 0 - 1. A crazy dribble in front of his own keeper by E. Gazziero set up Rhino´s's A. Deguai for an embarrassingly easy goal after 11 minutes. 1 - 1. E. Gazziero behaved like an inexperienced youth player after 13 minutes as he gave the ball away to E. Anklin. Lucky for him though, there was no goal. E. Gazziero let loose a good shot after 16 minutes, coming in on a fine move from the left, but the ball went wide. Birmensdorf had several good opportunities to take the lead, especially 21 minutes in when R. Hrabinský found himself alone with M. Halasek who managed a block. Rhino´s made a good counter-attacking move down the left 22 minutes into the game, and G. Schum finished well for 2 - 1. Birmensdorf's right side looked dangerous 24 minutes in, but M. Halasek made a good save on P. Leist's hard shot towards the top corner. 2 - 1 was the score after the first half. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Birmensdorf had 64...64 percent possession. AH AH AH!

The referee showed Birmensdorf's R. Hrabinský the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. The fierce heat made it important to save breath, and after a few swift runs K. Noyens found it hard to get back into position. R. Hrabinský came close to leveling the score 71 minutes into the game, as he was set up with a through ball coming in from the left, but his shot hit the post. N. Honsberger made a run for the goal 72 minutes into the game but the home team's left side was too well defended and the attack fizzled out. The sunny day didn't make things easy for J. Brabrinke who wasn't his usual powerful self on the field. J. Brabrinke could have put Rhino´s up one more, but he fired into the side netting after breaking free on the left after 83 minutes. Birmensdorf's coach was furious with P. Leist after he picked up a yellow for saying one too many words to the ref. Big paper red cards were being held up by the opposing supporters with 86 minutes on the clock after A. Perälampi's mistimed tackle from behind. The referee only showed the Birmensdorf player a yellow card though. E. Anklin had put in a good 89 minutes and left the field with a smile on his face due to his team's lead. M. Fajth was the replacement. Birmensdorf were doing a good job holding on to the ball, with 51 percent of possession.

The most outstanding Rhino´s player was without a doubt A. Deguai. Speaking of stinking up the place, H. Lux sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. Most important Birmensdorf player was P. Leist. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because G. Kretzer seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The match ends 2 - 1.
