The 12000 spectators at La Catedral Del Edén were in for an afternoon of sunshine. Henryk Włodarski was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and Christopher Pownall. Gentlemen prefer blondes and Fantasía prefers a 4-4-2. Let's see how this plays out for them. Lineup: Ríos Mendez - Oranguyen, Semprún, Díaz de Reguero, Reboreda - Latadi, Piquer, Murcia, Santibáñez - Cardaveras, Montero Vargas.

After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, Huercalense decided to go with a 3-5-2 formation. The following players had been selected: Bosum - Rodrigues, Breinbauer, Krisch - Rovira, Fusté, van Ardenne, Król, Bellorini - Vara, Lo Capezzo.

Some quick footwork on the left side of the field 14 minutes into the match left Huercalense's P. Rovira completely free to score. 0 - 1 for the visitors. The visitors' P. Rovira took advantage of a mix-up between the home side's goalie and center backs 21 minutes into the match. 0 - 2 for Huercalense. At this point, it was obvious that the players of Huercalense lowered the tempo and became more defensively oriented. Huercalense's C. van Ardenne received a ball slotted perfectly through the home side's central defense after 26 minutes, and chipped it past the helpless keeper to increase the lead to 0 - 3. The away fans won't regret traveling for this one! It was a hot and sunny day, and several players seemed worn out. Maybe this was why C. van Ardenne found an unusual amount of space for his snappy footwork. A defender managed to keep the ball from crossing the goal-line after a curling shot from the right by G. Lo Capezzo beat the keeper with 33 minutes played, preventing Huercalense from going up another goal. An indecisive keeper looked on as a free kick by Huercalense's P. Rovira put the visitors up 0 - 4 after 37 minutes. At that, P. Rovira was noted down for a hattrick! A. Kapaklis was called on to replace Huercalense's A. Krisch after 40 minutes following a nasty collision. 0 - 4 was the score after the first half. Huercalense did a good job holding on to the ball, with 87 percent of possession.

V. Bellorini found it hard to catch his breath today in the stifling heat. After 60 minutes, Huercalense's C. van Ardenne burst through the central defense and let loose a cannonball of a shot, scoring for 0 - 5. After 60 minutes a combination in the middle resulted in a through ball for G. Lo Capezzo who increased Huercalense's lead to 0 - 6. The Huercalense coach was happy with the scoreline, but still wanted to change the lineup. After 61 minutes, E. Rougier came on for U. Bosum. Maybe it was because of his team's lead, or maybe it was due to the ease with which he broke down the left, but H. Król was a bit too sure of his talents, so instead of taking the easy tap-in goal after 61 minutes, he went for the backheel, which he put woefully wide. P. Rovira increased the visitors' lead by volleying in a pass from the right. 0 - 7. À. Piquer behaved like an inexperienced youth player after 68 minutes as he gave the ball away to C. van Ardenne. Lucky for him though, there was no goal. The home crowd was not impressed when S. Breinbauer came in from the right, shooting hard to score after 69 minutes. Huercalense were now up 0 - 8. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Huercalense would have 89 percent possession in this half was spot on!

The most outstanding Fantasía player was without a doubt V. Murcia. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by L. Ríos Mendez today. Most important Huercalense player was C. van Ardenne. Good thing V. Bellorini isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. The match ends 0 - 8.
