koko 5 - 1 Duck

It had been a rainy day, and no more than 189 were scattered around Kokoria Arena to see the game. The rain was pouring down, it was the kind of weather favoured by strong players who stick to simple football. For players possessing of speed or technical skills, the day really was as grim as for everyone else. The picks for today were: Pathiakakis - Kasapoglou, Fountopoulos, Galanakis - Gaganis, Kalipolitis, Chaikalis, Kallioras, Chatzakis - Kriaropoulos, Sourlis.

The lucky starting players: Jonovski - Panajotov, Zafirovski - Davidovski, Desnoski, Hidri, Aspasiev, Laskov - Kotevski, Zhuri, Konjanovski.

Kokorakia B started the game in a 3-5-2 formation, whereas Ducklings Struga lined up in a 2-5-3 formation. koko showed off their creative tactics. Duck took a creative approach on the field. 6 minutes in, the referee awarded a penalty to koko. Dakis Kalipolitis did a rather silly run-up to confuse the goalkeeper, but it worked! That's 1 - 0, would you believe it! That free kick by Dakis Kalipolitis after 10 minutes went like a pinball through a crowd of defenders - and into the goal. 2 - 0 for koko. 20 minutes of the game had passed when Goran Kotevski attempted an optimistic rush from the left and somehow dragged the ball with him into the goal for 2 - 1. The Duck players were equally pleased and puzzled by the effort. The referee confirmed the score as 2 - 1 when he signalled for the halftime break. koko, bringing their ball possession to 55 percent, seemed most ambitious today.

koko's Argirios Kriaropoulos had an excellent opportunity after 58 minutes, receiving a through pass from the right wing that became a dangerous shot at goal! koko added one goal to their lead as Dakis Kalipolitis tucked the ball in the net, 3 - 1. He received the ball from the left, turned and then scored. By then Dakis Kalipolitis had scored three times - a hat trick! Dimitris Chatzakis increased koko's lead to 4 - 1, smashing in a cross from the right. To impress some local girls at the side of pitch Zharko Desnoski did some fancy moves up the middle and nearly reduced the home side's lead, but Yiorgos Pathiakakis refused to let the ball slip by him. koko were awarded a penalty 71 minutes into the game, and Dakis Kalipolitis managed to score - despite being visibly nervous about it. 5 - 1 for the home side. The match ends 5 - 1. koko pleased their coach greatly, as they maintained 55 percent of possession.

The koko players gave Dimitris Chatzakis a group hug after the game, claiming he'd been "really great". The coach took Panayiotis Galanakis aside after the game, telling him it is okay to have a bad day on the pitch as long as you keep trying. The coach of Duck was especially pleased with Admir Zhuri after the game. On the other hand, Vanco Jonovski's performance hadn't been very good at all.
