2ez 5 - 0 Orion5

The crowd turning up at the stadium today were greeted with some nasty showers of rain. The pitch was a disaster, due to all the rain. This spelled problems for the more sophisticated players, who usually could rely on speed or technique. For those relying on grit and strength, it actually meant an edge. They fielded: Laalo - Isola, Arvio, Kuustie - Malinen, Paasikoski, Kagge, Pihlajamaa, Saarinen - Rosa, Sarits.

Starters: Arias - Traquinas, Gonçalo, Faria, Paulino - Resende, Cazeiro, Ramão, Ribeiro - Barbosa.

2ez United fielded a 3-5-2 lineup. For Orion5, the formation of choice was 4-4-1. Counter-attacking seemed to be the preferred strategy of Orion5, taking advantage of their brilliant level with that tactic. 27 minutes into the game, Orion5 seemed a little tentative in their play as their organization fell to passable. Topi Saarinen was doing a great job on his wing, sending in brilliant passes to his teammates in the middle, but Ermo Sarits seemed unable to profit from this excellent service. 2ez took the lead 41 minutes into the game by 1 - 0, as Niilo Pihlajamaa elegantly received a long range pass through the middle, finishing off with a half-volley shot just below the bar. After 42 minutes, there was a bit of a mixup on the field as Orion5 found themselves out of position and their organisation level dropped to poor. The home side's Topi Saarinen came close to extending the lead 43 minutes into the game. His shot came in from the right hand side but Faustino Arias managed to save it with an unbelievable reaction stop. 2ez's Mark Rosa increased the lead to 2 - 0, after he saw his shot go between the legs of the advancing goalkeeper following some good play down the right wing after 43 minutes. It was 2 - 0 at the break. 2ez enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 72 percent of possession.

The coach gave his players an extra tactical briefing during the break, and after that Orion5 had passable organisation. 53 minutes into the game, 2ez were awarded a penalty that Ermo Sarits turned into 3 - 0 without a problem. Orion5's Adalberto Paulino was shown a yellow card after 65 minutes for slicing down an opponent. A magnificent combination in the middle resulted in 2ez's Mark Rosa increasing the lead to 4 - 0. After 67 minutes, 2ez sent a free kick in high over the penalty box. In what looked like a well-rehearsed move, the ball was headed backwards and reached Andres Kagge, who had plenty of space to place a well aimed shot - 5 - 0. 71 minutes into the game, Orion5 seemed to suffer a certain amount of confusion and they fell to a passable level of organisation. 73 minutes into the match, Ermo Sarits could have extended the lead, but his powerful free kick went just over the bar. With 74 minutes gone, a long pass from the defence of Orion5 resulted in a counterattack that set Benji Cazeiro free through the middle, but the keeper made a spectacular diving save. 76 minutes in, Orion5 appeared unsure on how to play and their organisation was only inadequate. The referee decided to let play continue for an additional 2 minutes beyond the regular 90 minutes. The match ends 5 - 0. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by 2ez, with 72 percent of the ball.

Vertti Paasikoski performed admirably for 2ez. Mika Kuustie on the other hand, had a terrible day. The most dominating Orion5 player was without a doubt Zeferino Barbosa. However, Marcos Ribeiro made a disastrous appearance.
