sokoli 4 - 2 SFY

Dark skies made several of the 26 spectators at inkubatorium contemplate an early return journey, but the rain held off. Starters: Gichev - Trajanov, Tutuşuk, Cvetkovski - Bilbilovski, Bonevski, Kokona, Jakimoski - Cvetanovski, Tosheski, Jevtić.

The boys who got to play today were: Seržinskas - Shatilin, Tankūnas, Brižys - Andrukhov, Budnys, Baškys, Gelunas - Šimulynas, Visbergas, Liepiņš.

As the teams spread out over the pitch, it became clear that they would both be using a 3-4-3 formation today. sokoli displayed their ability to play creatively. The SFY boys clearly preferred using their ability to attack in the middle. SFY took the lead after 6 minutes with 0 - 1. Augustas Gelunas showed promise as he placed the ball out of reach for the home side's keeper, having cut in from the left. After 22 minutes, sokoli's Dzhole Jakimoski swiftly ran past Yuliy Shatilin to put away the 1 - 1 goal. With 35 minutes played, Galkantas Baškys looked all grown up as he hit a powerful shot at goal from the middle of the D, missing it by an inch. sokoli came through on the left side with 38 minutes of play passed, and the attack ended as Zlate Bilbilovski gave the home side a 2 - 1 lead with a shot from a very narrow angle. Things were going to get worse for the visiting boys. Mihailo Jevtić willed his way through the central defence after 40 minutes, and scored to make it 3 - 1, making the lead more secure. 42 minutes were showing on the clock when Jānis Liepiņš, veering in from the right, got a nice opening and was able to reduce the score for SFY. That's 3 - 2. Dime Tosheski should probably have put his team up another goal after 43 minutes, but Romasis Seržinskas made a confident save and kept the visitors in the game. Geldon Kokona increased sokoli's lead to 4 - 2, smashing in a cross from the right. It was 4 - 2 at the break. In this half sokoli were the most energetic, keeping the ball to themselves for 54 percent of the time.

In the 46:th minute, the SFY coach decided a substitution may help turn the game around. Bagdonas Kupcikevičius came on, Jānis Liepiņš had to leave the fray. With Jānis Liepiņš no longer on the pitch, Kiprijonas Šimulynas took over free kick duty. sokoli appeared uncertain how to play and their organisation was only solid. sokoli did not seem very confident about what to do on the pitch, the organisation level having broken down to inadequate. After 68 minutes, Mihailo Jevtić showed no mercy as he ran straight at the SFY playmaker, mowing him down. He could stay on his feet himself, but only managed a feeble shot that didn't trouble the keeper at all. sokoli's Toshe Cvetanovski had an excellent opportunity after 72 minutes, receiving a through pass from the right wing that became a dangerous shot at goal! At the final whistle, the score is 4 - 2. sokoli, bringing their ball possession to 51 percent, seemed most ambitious today.

The sokoli players gave Dzhole Jakimoski a group hug after the game, claiming he'd been "really great". Toshe Cvetanovski left the field with tears in his eyes, knowing he had been the worst player on his team. Bagdonas Kupcikevičius performed especially well for SFY - this one could be a candidate for the senior squad one day. Romasis Seržinskas needs a lot of extra training, however.
