Clouds darkened the skies at Cholchoz Aréna as 3931 spectators turned up for the match. Rino Ghizzoni was the appointed referee. After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, Hříšice decided to go with a 3-4-3 formation. Starters: Pennisi - Salomonsen, Zbořil, Babor - Fako, van Weeren, Heijne, Lánský - Havrlant, Javorek, Ducháč.

Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Saddhus will go to battle in a 4-4-2 formation. Lineup: Majolino - Tapparello, Beecker, Chuquín, Mrzygłód - Burgalat, Giesen, Halimi, Le Pape - Zaferson, Fotevski.

Saddhus saw most attack opportunities on the wings by using their outstanding ability to push the attack in the right direction. Saddhus was given a free kick 27 minutes into the match after the defenders stopped the counter-attack. Interestingly, the free kick was directed at the area just in front of the keeper instead of at the goal mouth. The attackers were relentless, and after a short struggle with his marker, F. Mrzygłód could finally lay the ball to rest behind the keeper. That goal made the score 0 - 1. Hříšice's L. Javorek was shown a yellow card for standing over the ball and blocking an opponent's quick free kick after 29 minutes. Saddhus were determined to attack down the sideline and their central attempts were constantly abandoned in favor of the wings. Hříšice's coach was furious with J. Lánský after he picked up a yellow for saying one too many words to the ref. After 38 minutes, there was a bit of a mixup on the field as Saddhus found themselves out of position and their organization level dropped to passable. R. Fako still has a lot to learn. For instance, he should know not to make such feeble passes in front of K. Giesen, who easily scored for Saddhus, making it 0 - 2. Oh dear, hide the children! 43 minutes into the match, T. Salomonsen came down the left flank with a torch in one hand and a sword in the other. He's annihilated the defense and devastated the keeper! Goal for Hříšice, reducing the lead to 1 - 2. After 44 minutes of play, G. van Weeren evened things up for Hříšice with an impressive goal coming up the middle. 2 - 2. 44 minutes in, Saddhus appeared unsure on how to play and their organization was only weak. The Hříšice free kick 44 minutes into the match seemed wasted, as the shot was both short and off target. But it was no mistake - L. Havrlant seemingly came out of nowhere and had miles of space to control the ball and pick his spot. That's 3 - 2! Saddhus had to make a substitution after 44 minutes. M. Burgalat apparently was hit by a thrown bottle of Schlitz by one of the opposing players' fans, and now reeks of blood and bad beer. While the coach remonstrated with the side official about the situation, W. Grob finished his warmups and came on. The teams went for the halftime break at 3 - 2. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Hříšice, with an impressive 64 percent possession of the ball.

A review of the gameplan helped Saddhus get back to a solid organization to start the second half. With 55 minutes played, the Saddhus coach decided a substitution may help turn the game around. L. Haul came on and M. Zaferson had to leave the fray. 56 minutes into the game, Saddhus had difficulty finding their positions and their organization dropped to weak. With 57 minutes played, Saddhus's W. Grob received a yellow card for challenging a play with his cleats first. 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, Hříšice's T. Salomonsen finally got himself booked for a foul. Saddhus's W. Grob went down after a savage challenge, but could continue playing after some medical attention. Saddhus's S. Beecker was shown a yellow card after 70 minutes for slicing down an opponent. Saddhus had a good opportunity to attack in the middle, but remembered their instructions to go down the wing instead. K. Giesen came close to leveling the score 77 minutes into the game, as he was set up with a through ball coming in from the left, but his shot hit the post. 80 minutes into the match, the visitors' central line of defense had to look on as M. Babor ran straight through, knocking one home to make it 4 - 2 for Hříšice. At this point, it was obvious that the players of Hříšice lowered the tempo and became more defensively oriented. K. Giesen could've grabbed a goal for Saddhus 81 minutes in when he got a pass from the left putting him free of the home side's defense, but he was unable to take advantage of the situation. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Hříšice would have 64 percent possession in this half was spot on!

The most outstanding Hříšice player was without a doubt G. van Weeren. I can't remember V. Pennisi ever having a worse night than he just had. L. Haul performed admirably for Saddhus. Good thing S. Beecker isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. The match ends 4 - 2.
