Kurmju 3 - 0 FK-U-20

The weather was pretty good, and a crowd of 19777 had shown up at Kurmju pirksti Arena for the match. Leif Larsson was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and Mduduzi Katiyo. The rivalry game had been the talk of Rīga all week and fans of both teams could be seen throughout the stadium. The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and Kurmju formed up in a 4-4-2 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. They fielded: van der Lem - Abadal, Coscelli, Fransson, Dedziņš - Candio, Naila, Della Ventura, Pūris - Kløvedal, Bencze.

Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! FK-U-20 will go to battle in a 4-4-2 formation. Starters: Pupiņš - Skujiņš, Auris, Reginevich, Viciens - Shneyderov, Vilks, Desainis, Barinov - Vēveris, Bulduris.

Kurmju saw most attack opportunities on the wings by using their brilliant ability to push the attack in the right direction. The referee showed FK-U-20's R. Auris the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. With 34 minutes gone, the home side took a 1 - 0 lead as M. Dedziņš raced down the right flank and casually flipped the ball into the net after a searing cross from the far side of the pitch. Big paper red cards were being held up by the opposing supporters with 36 minutes on the clock after T. Kløvedal's mistimed tackle from behind. The referee only showed the Kurmju player a yellow card though. 38 minutes in Kurmju probably could have turned their free kick into a shot, but went for a cross instead. Unfortunately, T. Kløvedal jumped too late and the ball was redirected out for a goal kick. Kurmju's O. Pūris saw his fine effort strike the top of the bar following some good work up the middle by his teammates 39 minutes in. Maybe C. Coscelli should join the aquatics team instead. He went down dramatically after 43 minutes, crying out with agony as he fell. The referee was not impressed, though, and showed him a yellow for diving. 1 - 0 was the halftime score. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Kurmju had 65...65 percent possession. AH AH AH!

C. Candio let loose a swerving effort from the right that the visitors' keeper did well to tip wide. A magnificent combination in the middle resulted in Kurmju's T. Kløvedal bringing the lead up to 2 - 0. Kurmju solidified their lead at the 63 minute mark, as T. Kløvedal snaked the ball through the central line of defense and finished for 3 - 0. By now, the players of Kurmju felt that victory was a sure thing and began to play it safe, focusing on defense and not risking too much going forward. After several obvious shirt pulling incidents, Kurmju's P. Naila got himself booked. With 75 minutes gone, Kurmju's T. Kløvedal had to leave the game after talking back to the referee and receiving his second booking. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Kurmju, with an impressive 69 percent possession of the ball.

The most outstanding Kurmju player was without a doubt K. Bencze. Good thing P. Della Ventura isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. FK-U-20's best player was G. Vilks. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by J. Reginevich today. The match ends 3 - 0.
