F.C. 5 - 1 Moie

The 31827 fans in attendance at The Cage were roasting in the hot sun. Rob Thorbo was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and Francisco Murciano. Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! F.C. will go to battle in a 3-5-2 formation. Lineup: Stierstorfer - Dutkowski, Gervasi, Zeelen - Maestro, Plebani, Baliqi, Palareti, Rodamilans - Chella, Simoncini.

Gentlemen prefer blondes and Moie prefers a 3-5-2. Let's see how this plays out for them. The following players had been selected: Guolo - Ciochină, Piasenzotto, Zanfardino - Lejska, Botti, Mariconti, Autunnali, Stabile - Lamih, Wolfowich.

F.C.'s M. Simoncini was shown a yellow card after 23 minutes for slicing down an opponent. The home side put themselves ahead 1 - 0 after 27 minutes of hard work with a breakthrough from G. Gervasi, who, all by his lonesome, came out of the right wing and hooked the ball over the visitors' keeper. M. Palareti increased F.C.'s lead to 2 - 0, connecting with a hooked ball from the right. The away fans are claiming handball, to no avail. A magnificent combination in the middle resulted in F.C.'s F. Maestro bringing the lead up to 3 - 0. Halftime score was 3 - 0. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that F.C. had 54...54 percent possession. AH AH AH!

The home team's lead was reduced to 3 - 1 after Moie's P. Mariconti took advantage of a misunderstanding in the center of the defense. F.C. added another goal to their lead as F. Maestro struck home for 4 - 1 after an attack from the left set him up unmarked in front of the keeper. F.C.'s players now seemed to think the job was done and acted more defensively, just waiting for the ref to blow the final whistle. 74 minutes into the game, F.C. were awarded a penalty that G. Chella converted into a bigger lead without so much as a how-do-you-do to the visiting keeper. It's 5 - 1 now! M. Rodamilans looked around after sending his opponent to the ground to realize he was the last man. That's called denial of a goalscoring opportunity, and the F.C. player was sent off after 75 minutes. G. Autunnali behaved like an inexperienced youth player after 76 minutes as he gave the ball away to Z. Baliqi. Lucky for him though, there was no goal. Moie kept trying to force their way through on the right side and H. Lejska got his chance after 80 minutes, but the home side's defense held their position and stopped the attack. There was concern in the stands when, at the 81 minute mark, F.C.'s O. Plebani hit the ground hard, but with the help of the trainer's magic spray, he rejoined his teammates on the field. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that F.C. would have 51 percent possession in this half was spot on!

F.C.'s best player was M. Simoncini. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because W. Stierstorfer seemed to stumble all over the pitch. Moie's top performer was clearly M. Botti. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by D. Stabile today. The match ends 5 - 1.
