Overcast weather free of rain made for a turnout of 59500 at damari today. Edmond Meerbusch was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and . The rivalry game had been the talk of Aigaio all week and fans of both teams could be seen throughout the stadium. Gentlemen prefer blondes and latomiakos prefers a 3-5-2. Let's see how this plays out for them. The following players took the field: Solari - Kotsiras, Vallejos, Fagerli - Gostkowski, Tsioridis, Katsarolidis, Chlomopoulos, Doxakis - Menegakis, Ðokić.

Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Taurus will go to battle in a 3-4-3 formation. The following players had been selected: Bartolucci - Fère, Fazio, Liedling - Zanin, Gibelli, Mezonetas, Fatsoulinos - Hendriksson, Silva, Ishenko.

Taurus took the lead 3 minutes into the game, making the score 0 - 1 after some elegant movement down the middle. K. Ishenko was the scorer. T. Menegakis was first to reach a long ball launched through the center from latomiakos's defense 8 minutes into the game. He managed to keep his cool and beat the keeper to make the score 1 - 1. Making his way up the middle after 14 minutes, T. Menegakis almost managed to sneak a goal past the visitors' keeper, but L. Bartolucci was ready and blocked it to keep the score level. Some great play up the middle by latomiakos led to a chance for T. Menegakis to get the go-ahead goal with 16 minutes played, but the shot hit the crossbar. After more pushing and shoving than a pack of helicopter moms trying to get the last appointment for their snowflakes to see the Easter Bunny, Taurus's R. Liedling finally got himself booked for a foul. After 36 minutes Taurus's M. Zanin contracted a slight foot injury, but said he could still finish the game. With 39 minutes played, latomiakos's L. Vallejos received a yellow card for challenging a play with his cleats first. Halftime score was 1 - 1. Neither team was controlling possession at this point in the match.

48 minutes into the game, M. Zanin almost gave the visitors the lead, as he chipped a delicate lob over the keeper, but the ball glanced harmlessly off the crossbar. Down the middle came H. Silva, making a fantastic play that nearly saw Taurus take the lead after 68 minutes, but A. Solari preserved the tie. Almost all the way down at the corner flag, Taurus's M. Zanin somehow managed to get a perfect pass into the middle, impossible to miss for J. Hendriksson, who scored for 1 - 2. The visitors' J. Hendriksson took advantage of a mix-up between the home side's goalie and center backs 84 minutes into the match. 1 - 3 for Taurus. After 85 minutes, latomiakos's T. Menegakis ran past G. Fazio like he was standing still to put away the 2 - 3 goal. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Taurus would have 51 percent possession in this half was spot on!

V. Chlomopoulos performed admirably for latomiakos. I can't remember M. Gostkowski ever having a worse night than he just had. The most outstanding Taurus player was without a doubt H. Silva. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because K. Ishenko seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The match ends 2 - 3.
