It had rained all day, but 16342 hardy fans still made it out to SOIMII SCRIOASTEA. Ernesto Penn was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Adan Barrios and Sjaak Vis. After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, ALCALA decided to go with a 3-4-3 formation. Lineup: Cuptor - Sotan, Dancea, Micle - Hekele, Borgo, Piller, Brăileanu - Berloni, Perţa, Voiculescu.

Gentlemen prefer blondes and CSS.Reghin prefers a 4-4-2. Let's see how this plays out for them. The following players had been selected: Borlean - Paceagiu, Mureşan, Toma, Ene - Lepădatu, Veliu, Găman, Asofronie - Stoleriu, Checiu.

It was obvious, dreadfully boring, and yet tantalizingly effective, to see ALCALA using their weak pressing skills as their primary tactic. The pressing tactics used by ALCALA were successful as the ball didn't make it out of the middle third very much. ALCALA could have put themselves ahead after 17 minutes but C. Dancea mishit a volley on a ball coming in from the right. After 37 minutes cheers broke out as C. Perţa found his way through the guests' central defensive line, rattling the 1 - 0 goal in off the woodwork for ALCALA. It was 1 - 0 at the break. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that ALCALA had 58...58 percent possession. AH AH AH!

ALCALA's C. Perţa saw his fine effort strike the top of the bar following some good work up the middle by his teammates 56 minutes in. ALCALA added another goal to their lead as C. Dancea struck home for 2 - 0 after an attack from the left set him up unmarked in front of the keeper. Morale on the visitors' bench was greatly improved when their player H. Veliu scored to make it 2 - 1 after 72 minutes, following a good pass from the right. Things were going from bad to worse for the visitors. D. Berloni was able to squirm through the central defense after 76 minutes and score, bringing the lead to 3 - 1. By now, the players of ALCALA felt that victory was a sure thing and began to play it safe, focusing on defense and not risking too much going forward. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that CSS.Reghin would have 51 percent possession in this half was spot on!

ALCALA's best player was C. Perţa. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because M. Piller seemed to stumble all over the pitch. CSS.Reghin's top performer was clearly F. Stoleriu. I can't remember A. Borlean ever having a worse night than he just had. The match ends 3 - 1.
