Due to an all-day shower, 34005 paying spectators got to see the game on a field-turned-swamp at Coins Stadium. Inodoro Vitale was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Niklaus Reinhold and Rosch Kruchten. The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and Markka formed up in a 3-4-3 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. Starters: Rauberger - Hajzer, Eisenschenk, Todić - Kramsu, Hufschmid, Singh, Oriol - Pacheco, Picot, Sandvik.

Gentlemen prefer blondes and Vihnuslake prefers a 3-4-3. Let's see how this plays out for them. The following players took the field: Dahlgren - Kaistinen, Coens, Thilman - Díaz, Jegat, Hyllested, Santanen - Veijalainen, Purtonen, Tenhovaara.

The guests almost went up by a goal with 2 minutes elapsed when L. Coens came through from the right. The shot bounced harmlessly off the post, though. C. Picot slipped and slid in the wet grass. His usual rapid runs were nowhere to be seen today. 16 minutes into the game, C. Díaz almost gave the visitors the lead, as he chipped a delicate lob over the keeper, but the ball glanced harmlessly off the crossbar. Vihnuslake's S. Dahlgren had to watch the rest of the game from the sidelines, after twisting his ankle with 31 minutes gone. P. Spitsõn was the replacement. Down the middle came S. Kaistinen, making a fantastic play that nearly saw Vihnuslake take the lead after 32 minutes, but J. Rauberger preserved the tie. 37 minutes into the game, B. Oriol had to leave the field due to a knee injury. In came J. Kesti. The rain made it hard for players like A. Tenhovaara to show their technical control of the ball on this soggy day. It was 0 - 0 at the break. Vihnuslake were doing a good job holding on to the ball, with 58 percent of possession.

Vihnuslake had several good opportunities to take the lead, especially 49 minutes in when A. Purtonen found himself alone with J. Rauberger who managed a block. A corner kick created massive confusion in the penalty area, with a near-goal by J. Santanen. At last, Vihnuslake's K. Hyllested was able to will the ball into the net. 0 - 1. There was concern in the stands when, at the 77 minute mark, Markka's S. Singh hit the ground hard, but with the help of the trainer's magic spray, he rejoined his teammates on the field. With 81 minutes played, S. Kaistinen nearly put the visitors up by one more as he broke through in the middle and fired from just outside the box, but his shot whizzed just over the bar. Markka's counter-attacks created a good chance for A. Pacheco on the right after 82 minutes, but he could only look on with dismay as his strike rebounded off the crossbar. 85 minutes into the game, Vihnuslake worked the left side industriously creating several opportunities to add to their lead, but just couldn't apply the finishing touch. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Vihnuslake, with an impressive 62 percent possession of the ball.

Most important Markka player was L. Eisenschenk. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because J. Kesti seemed to stumble all over the pitch. T. Veijalainen performed admirably for Vihnuslake. Speaking of stinking up the place, P. Spitsõn sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. The match ends 0 - 1.
