ELIQKENT 2 - 2 Tiger

It had rained all day, but 1663 hardy fans still made it out to L hantre KENT Arena. Gianluigi Sasso was the appointed referee. After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, ELIQKENT decided to go with a 3-5-2 formation. The following players had been selected: Gregersen - Cornaglia, Skvorchevskiy, Jílek - Holbek, Bellaiche, Ben Abdallah, Edwige, Maret - Cifuentes, Porta.

Gentlemen prefer blondes and Tiger prefers a 5-4-1. Let's see how this plays out for them. They fielded: Climent - Henriksen, Nuovo, Usarek, Nikolashin, Moeslund - Tranchese, Rubinstein, Zadelaar, Conato - Marinangeli.

It was an obvious ambition of ELIQKENT to play a wide game with their excellent ability to attack down the wings. The muddy field made the game a gritty affair, which seemed to suit P. Cifuentes just fine. 0 - 1 was the score after 22 minutes, when Tiger's A. Usarek cut through the central defense and pounded one in. Tiger's C. Climent had to watch the rest of the game from the sidelines, after twisting his ankle with 24 minutes gone. A. Neiķēns was the replacement. R. Holbek did not have a good day today, often losing his footing on the muddy field. Tiger's defense sent a ball soaring up the middle on a beautiful counter-attack with 32 minutes gone, but N. Tranchese's finish was met by the firm hands of the keeper. ELIQKENT's R. Ben Abdallah was shown a yellow card after 38 minutes for slicing down an opponent. A. Usarek might as well have been wearing Pilgrim shoes for all the traction he could get on the waterlogged field - his trademark technique was nowhere in sight today. With a shot lofted in from just outside the penalty area 41 minutes in, S. Maret of ELIQKENT evened the score to 1 - 1. ELIQKENT's R. Holbek tried to break through the middle repeatedly, but the visitors' defenders were just too alert. After 43 minutes, ELIQKENT raised their score by one when R. Holbek's dangerous low cross was cleverly tucked in at the near post by D. Porta. 2 - 1. ELIQKENT's P. Cifuentes had an excellent opportunity 44 minutes in, shooting after bringing down a ball from the right, but he missed the goal by miles! It was 2 - 1 at the break. ELIQKENT were doing a good job holding on to the ball, with 63 percent of possession.

C. Bellaiche should probably have put his team up another goal after 49 minutes, but some great goalkeeping by A. Neiķēns kept the visitors in the game. Tiger leveled the score after 59 minutes to make it 2 - 2, as B. Moeslund struck home after a fine midfield combination through the middle left him completely unmarked. Making his way up the middle after 77 minutes, K. Skvorchevskiy almost managed to sneak a goal past the visitors' keeper, but A. Neiķēns was ready and blocked it to keep the score level. 81 minutes into the game, F. Conato had to leave the field due to a knee injury. In came J. Colino. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that ELIQKENT would have 73 percent possession in this half was spot on!

ELIQKENT's top performer was clearly C. Bellaiche. Good thing K. Gregersen isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. C. Zadelaar performed admirably for Tiger. I can't remember D. Nuovo ever having a worse night than he just had. The match ends 2 - 2.
