29608 spectators had come to jyKroKo Bassena
this cloudy day. Arthuro Wals
was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Patrício Cerejeira
and Cyrill Wittwer
jyKroKo had chosen a strategic 5-3-2 formation.
Lineup: Requelme - Gillhausen, Coassin, Grave, Wippl, Zöhrer - Thom, Mazunov, dos Reis - Donkov, Klukowski.
Dorfwirten decided to use a 3-5-2 set up.
They fielded: Liptay - Driesen, Safran, Hickey - Pipoca, Margreiter, Reekers, Fölski, Baltazar - Kriden, Känsälä.
jyKroKo clearly had decided to counter-attack when they could.
With 4 minutes gone, Z. Klukowski
suddenly found himself completely free on the right wing when a counterattack by jyKroKo caught their opponents by surprise. Only a great save by the opposing keeper prevented him from scoring.
The opposing supporters gave the referee an earful when he only gave J. Pipoca
from Dorfwirten a yellow card after a mistimed challenge from behind 27 minutes into the game. That was far too lenient!
gave the visitors the lead 32 minutes into the match to make it 0 - 1. The goal was scored from the penalty spot after a handball in the penalty area.
Dorfwirten made sure of not letting B. dos Reis
succeed with his speed. When an opportunity appeared for him, as it did 38 minutes into the game, speedy J. Driesen
came to the rescue and stopped the attack.
The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 1.
Possession in this half belonged to Dorfwirten, who controlled the ball 62 percent of the time.
Coming in from the right, jyKroKo had a good opportunity to convert on a counterattack after 49 minutes, but Z. Klukowski
's attempt to finish was easily stopped.
The Dorfwirten players could smell victory in the air. B. Safran
wasn't in a hurry to leave the field as he was substituted for P. Broge
after 60 minutes.
While defending the Dorfwirten lead, R. Hickey
got a new role. 61 minutes in the game, his coach ordered him to change positions with P. Broge
With 77 minutes played, a quick exchange of passes on the left wing freed D. Fölski
of Dorfwirten to slip through the defence and score another goal for the visitors. That made the score 0 - 2.
Dorfwirten claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 62 percent.
Most important jyKroKo player was V. Donkov
turned in a dismal performance, however.
The most dominating Dorfwirten player was without a doubt D. Fölski
was a disappointment, however.
The match ends 0 - 2.
