236 people were spread out along the sidelines of Manolo Preciado, the decent weather leading to fine conditions for football. The lucky starting players: M'Dahoma - Abdoulhaniou, Mohamed Sambi, Chepchumba - Abdullah, Halidi, Mbalia, Obanda, Imamo - Cheruiyot, Andhumdine Simba.

The picks for today were: Hoti - Jurukovski, Delev, Trpkovski, Arnaudovski, Debarlievski - Alabakovski, Lazarov, Shtylla, Asri, Ackov -.

Baobab entered the field in a 3-5-2 formation. The visitors, veles utd youth squad, chose to start the game with a 5-5-0 lineup. Baobab decided to play creatively. A free kick aimed at the keeper's far post almost gave vu youth the lead in the 18:th minute, but the ball couldn't squirm its way through the defensive wall. The sparse home crowd was not entertained by the fancy moves of vu youth's Jordan Lazarov after 34 minutes of the match. He converted a pass from the left for a goal, which meant the visitors were now in the lead; 0 - 1. Having taken a hard knock between his legs, Salim Abdoulhaniou limped off the pitch in a reduced state of dignity. He could not continue, managing only 35 minutes for his team this day. Ahmed Mbalia tried to hide a smile as he entered the field. He had not expected to get a chance this day. Salim Abdoulhaniou was coming off, and had placed his last free kick for the day. That meant that Kassim Andhumdine Simba got the chance to showcase his dead ball skills. Nuru Cheruiyot of Baobab sped past Bojan Debarlievski, and the effort made the 1 - 1 goal a mere formality. After 41 minutes vu youth's Lazo Ackov was out wide on the left, where he found himself unchallenged and able to receive a fine through pass. The keeper came towards him, but not quick enough to cut the attacker off completely. 1 - 2 for the visitors. It was by no means pretty when one of the home defenders unknowingly protected the goal using his rear end in the 43th minute. But the move was effective and stopped Alican Asri's shot from the right side just before entering the goal. A counterattack by Baobab after 44 minutes could have resulted in a goal, but Nuru Cheruiyot, coming in on the left, lost his wits and couldn't get the shot off. Baobab's Kassim Andhumdine Simba made a successful breakthrough attempt 44 minutes into the game and should have levelled the score after some good work down the right, but instead he clipped it over the bar. At the halftime break, the score was 1 - 2. In this half vu youth were the most energetic, keeping the ball to themselves for 60 percent of the time.

After 47 minutes, the visitors put themselves ahead 1 - 3 as Bojan Debarlievski deflected a misplaced long shot from the left into the goal. Did that come off his backside? After 55 minutes, a defensive blunder enabled vu youth to put themselves up 1 - 4 following an attack from the right. The scorer was Flokart Shtylla. Some fine maneuvering on the left led to a goal for the young vu youth side after 62 minutes, making it 1 - 5. The referee announced Lazo Ackov as the scorer. Nuru Cheruiyot was in no condition to play on. 63 minutes into the game he left the field on a stretcher, with his left thigh bandaged, and crying out in pain. The replacement for the injured player was Azali Assoumani. As the match wraps up the score is 1 - 5. vu youth pleased their coach greatly, as they maintained 62 percent of possession.

Azali Assoumani performed especially well for Baobab - this one could be a candidate for the senior squad one day. Djaffar M'Dahoma showed he still has a lot to learn. The vu youth players gave Jordan Lazarov a group hug after the game, claiming he'd been "really great". Bojan Debarlievski needs a lot of extra training, however.
