Clouds darkened the skies at Kystfolket EK Arena as 15100 spectators turned up for the match. Manlio Giglio was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Jack Grönqvist and Gigel Zamfir. Our studio analysts were correct. Kystfolket has taken the field in a 3-5-2 alignment. The following players had been selected: Massaccesi - Jensen, Lunde, Remme - Li, Eggen, Repstad, Hagen, Andersen - Kværndrup, Bijleveld.

Gentlemen prefer blondes and Colorado prefers a 3-5-2. Let's see how this plays out for them. The following players took the field: Gonçalves - Mojica, Fraga, Rosik - Gervais, Gurgone, Simonsen, Aalders, Einan - Conte, Fossan.

Colorado went for a narrow approach, using their supernatural ability to focus their attacks down the middle. As the 24 minute mark approached, the Kystfolket manager decided it was time for a substitution. M. Kværndrup reluctantly made way for K. Standal. The home crowd breathed a collective sigh of relief when W. Fraga was unable to give the visitors the go-ahead goal after his attack from the left in minute 24. Kystfolket broke through on the left after 25 minutes, with H. Hagen firing at an impossible angle to give the home side a 1 - 0 lead. 26 minutes had passed when Kystfolket put themselves up 2 - 0 after the visiting defenders lost the ball to H. Andersen, who came up from the left and proceeded to easily go around the goalkeeper and knock the ball home. Things were going from bad to worse for the visitors. S. Eggen was able to squirm through the central defense after 31 minutes and score, bringing the lead to 3 - 0. 40 minutes into the game, Colorado's attack got through on the right, but W. Fraga couldn't control the ball and his feeble kick wound up in the keeper's arms. 3 - 0 was the halftime score. Kystfolket did a good job holding on to the ball, with 57 percent of possession.

The home team's fans were upset when, after 54 minutes, the visiting P. Conte broke through the central defense and got the ball past the keeper. 3 - 1 was the score. Kystfolket put themselves up 4 - 1 when H. Hagen broke through on the right, leaving the entire defensive delegation behind him. 63 minutes in, an amazing pass from the left side resulted in a golden chance for the visitors. C. Simonsen was up to the task and scored, bringing them up to 4 - 2. The home crowd just couldn't believe it when H. Andersen missed a penalty with 64 minutes of the match played. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Kystfolket, with an impressive 53 percent possession of the ball.

Kystfolket's best player was N. Bijleveld. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by S. Lunde today. The most outstanding Colorado player was without a doubt C. Simonsen. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because S. Einan seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The match ends 4 - 2.
