Torpedo 1 - 5 Sican

The local marching band welcomed a crowd of 3251 to Mestni stadion Jaušje. Mattias Liljendahl was the appointed referee. The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and Torpedo formed up in a 3-5-2 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. Starters: Funa - Kordan, Gneo, Martinez - Laharnar, Cunder, Zakrajšek, Repa, Rojc - Paesschesoone, Petrunin.

Our studio analysts were correct. Sican has taken the field in a 3-5-2 alignment. The following players had been selected: Capece - Ballón, Massarenti, Vélez - Stauber, Verbeken, Estland, Balcerak, Guzmán - Kuess, Otić.

Torpedo's Ž. Laharnar was dominating his wing and kept sending fine balls into the opposing area - A. Petrunin managed to kick one of them into the net for 1 - 0 after 32 minutes. Sican's coach was not happy when E. Balcerak missed a penalty 33 minutes into the match. A run up the right wing paid off for Sican as Z. Otić hit a wicked shot past the keeper to tie the game. 1 - 1 after 38 minutes. Sican's Z. Otić gave the visitors a 1 - 2 lead after 41 minutes with a superb strike from the right. The game had been going for 42 minutes when E. Balcerak broke through on the right, upping the score to 1 - 3 for Sican, much to the home crowd's dismay. Some fine one-twos on the left led to a Sican goal with 43 minutes gone, making it 1 - 4. H. Estland was noted down as the scorer. At this point, it was obvious that the players of Sican lowered the tempo and became more defensively oriented. It was 1 - 4 at the break. Sican set the tempo, maintaining 67 percent of possession.

Torpedo's G. Paesschesoone was shown a yellow card after 52 minutes for slicing down an opponent. The Sican free kick 69 minutes into the match seemed wasted, as the shot was both short and off target. But it was no mistake - F. Kuess seemingly came out of nowhere and had miles of space to control the ball and pick his spot. That's 1 - 5! Sican's F. Kuess made it through the home team's defense on the right hand side 79 minutes into the match. After rounding the keeper, he only had to place the ball in the unguarded net when a defender slid in and cleared the ball off the line. 80 minutes into the game, Sican worked the left side industriously creating several opportunities to add to their lead, but just couldn't apply the finishing touch. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Sican would have 72 percent possession in this half was spot on!

Torpedo's top performer was clearly A. Petrunin. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because T. Repa seemed to stumble all over the pitch. Most important Sican player was E. Balcerak. I can't remember A. Capece ever having a worse night than he just had. The match ends 1 - 5.
