Torden 2 - 4 Corazon

Overcast weather free of rain made for a crowd turnout of 900 at Torden Arena today. Petteri Lintula was the appointed referee. A 4-5-1 alignment was the formation of choice for Torden. Starters: Guyer - Rønning, Botelho, Nesheim, Brendmo - Julin, Soltvedt, Niedern, Olsrød, Siri - Alvez.

Corazon started off with a 3-5-2 lineup. Lineup: Dima - Ratte, Ziediņš, Orbeta - Cuadro Gutiérrez, Vilkuna, Bittner, Flinkbeck, Capela - Hiraoka, Maier.

Today, Torden's strategy involved concentrating on the flanks for their attacks. The wings were the focus of most of Corazon's attacks today. M. Cuadro Gutiérrez stunned the crowd with a brilliant counterattack from the left, giving Corazon the goal to make it 0 - 1. Corazon came close to extending their lead as C. Maier delivered a low effort on goal from the right after 9 minutes, but the angle was too narrow and the shot went harmlessly into the side netting. With 22 minutes played, Corazon put themselves up 0 - 2 after an attack from the right, caused by a defensive blunder. The scorer was C. Maier. C. Maier increased the visitors' lead by putting a volley away after a pass from the right. 0 - 3. Corazon's T. Hiraoka refused to leave the field after injuring his achilles tendon after 40 minutes. The head of S. Soltvedt connected with a corner kick after 41 minutes, and the ball ended up with C. Julin of Torden who blasted the ball into the net, making the score 1 - 3. J. Ziediņš of Corazon took advantage of a mistake on the home side's right after 43 minutes which increased the away team's lead to 1 - 4. At this point, it was obvious that the players of Corazon lowered the tempo and became more defensively oriented. G. Rovati was called on to replace Corazon's T. Hiraoka after 44 minutes following a nasty collision. The teams went for the halftime break at 1 - 4. Torden enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 51 percent of possession.

Content with how the game was proceeding, the Corazon coach let V. Iglesia replace O. Bittner after 48 minutes. Attacking on the wings was the choice for Torden, and they were successfully passing the ball from the middle to the wings to attack. Torden's E. Nesheim found himself alone on the left side 51 minutes into the match and laid down a perfect shot - right into the arms of the keeper! 61 minutes into the match, Torden's A. Siri collected a ball sent down the right and put it in the back of the net, narrowing the score to 2 - 4. With the scoreboard showing that 62 minutes had been played, Corazon nearly put themselves up another goal after G. Rovati came through on the left. Fortunately for the home crowd, the keeper made the save. Torden's counterattacks created a good chance for F. Niedern on the right after 63 minutes, but he could only look on with dismay as his strike rebounded off the crossbar. S. Soltvedt charged down the left and looked sure to score for Torden 67 minutes into the game, but his shot went just wide. Corazon were determined to attack on the wing and their central attempts were constantly abandoned in favour of the wings. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by Torden, with 52 percent of the ball.

Torden's best player was E. Nesheim. However, F. Niedern made a disastrous appearance. Corazon's top performer was clearly G. Rovati. G. Dima on the other hand, had a terrible day. The match ends 2 - 4.
