The weather was pretty good, and a crowd of 20613 had shown up at Alcoholic Arena for the match. Ove Stensson was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and Ramon van der Kolk. The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and Alcoholic formed up in a 3-5-2 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. Starters: Rackham - Kostohryz, Brossette, Prgeša - Flaugnacco, Oropallo, Vasi, Swinkels, Coscelli - Uchman, Salone.

Gentlemen prefer blondes and dominamo prefers a 3-5-2. Let's see how this plays out for them. They fielded: Balassa - Catania, Anderson, Arlequín - Worms, Ilie, Deiana, Abrescia, Aleem - Selma, Paolillo.

dominamo seemed to prefer attacking in the middle, using their world class ability to great effect. Alcoholic broke through on the left after 2 minutes, with L. Uchman firing at an impossible angle to give the home side a 1 - 0 lead. After 16 minutes, Alcoholic's S. Flaugnacco successfully broke up a pass with his face. Instinctively, he got up again only to unintentionally use his now-throbbing schnozz to break up a second pass. As he was carted off for a concussion check, G. Guidinger ran onto the field to take his place. Alcoholic's T. Prgeša saw his fine effort strike the top of the bar following some good work up the middle by his teammates 20 minutes in. G. Salone should probably have put his team up another goal after 27 minutes, but some great goalkeeping by M. Balassa kept the visitors in the game. Alcoholic's L. Oropallo was delighted to score as he saw his shot go between the legs of the advancing keeper and into the net, following some good attacking movement on the right wing. 2 - 0 after 33 minutes. The teams went for the halftime break at 2 - 0. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Alcoholic would have 53 percent possession in this half was spot on!

Was it the hair gel? Was it a gift from the gods? Either way, the faithful won't care. Soaring like a Saturn V, L. Worms somehow got his head on a S. Abrescia moonshot from the corner and buried it in the back of the net. What grace! What power! Plant the flag for dominamo, Neil Armstrong! The score is now 2 - 1. Alcoholic's T. Prgeša had an excellent opportunity 63 minutes in, shooting after bringing down a ball from the right, but he missed the goal by miles! Things were going from bad to worse for the visitors. S. Swinkels was able to squirm through the central defense after 75 minutes and score, bringing the lead to 3 - 1. The dominamo free kick 76 minutes into the match seemed wasted, as the shot was both short and off target. But it was no mistake - N. Selma seemingly came out of nowhere and had miles of space to control the ball and pick his spot. That's 3 - 2! Alcoholic set the tempo, maintaining 52 percent of possession.

Alcoholic's top performer was clearly G. Salone. Good thing T. Prgeša isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. The most outstanding dominamo player was without a doubt N. Selma. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by E. Catania today. The match ends 3 - 2.
