Frick 2 - 1 Sulzbach

Overcast weather free of rain made for a turnout of 36775 at Fc Frick Arena today. Henri Lepage was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Carlos Roberto Santos Reis and Anders Gottman. Our studio analysts were correct. Frick has taken the field in a 4-4-2 alignment. The following players had been selected: Olszowski - Verbaan, Evpak, Charleux, Di Iorio - Courivaud, Ciemięga, Benzi, Enache - Kolářík, Cordal.

After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, Sulzbach decided to go with a 5-3-2 formation. Lineup: Papalino - Arntsen, Uranus, Tepla, Benea, Majdan - Budianto, Göknar, Dobler - Toma, Sauber.

For their match strategy, Sulzbach had decided to use their supernatural ability to counter-attack whenever possible. J. Verbaan received some harsh words from his coach after he acted foolishly 24 minutes into the match, probably out of lack of experience, and almost let an opponent score. Frick created a good opportunity to score 32 minutes into the game when V. Cordal's hooked ball from the left created a scuffle in front of the goal, but the visitors' defenders eventually won out. Frick's D. Charleux was shown a yellow card for standing over the ball and blocking an opponent's quick free kick after 34 minutes. Given a free kick from a ways out after 35 minutes, Sulzbach sent an arching ball into the penalty box. It was headed clear, but O. Tepla was waiting just outside the area and fired it home to make it 0 - 1. It was 0 - 1 at the break. Frick did a good job holding on to the ball, with 58 percent of possession.

After 49 minutes, following yet another great corner, Ç. Göknar knocked the ball to E. Toma but it was just too high and the shot came off his shin. With a shot lofted in from just outside the penalty area 54 minutes in, K. Evpak of Frick evened the score to 1 - 1. As the 60 minute mark approached, the Sulzbach manager decided it was time for a substitution. M. Budianto reluctantly made way for R. Geren. Frick were very close to putting themselves one up with 79 minutes gone as J. Verbaan got through on the left, but a lapse in concentration sent the ball wide. M. Kolářík is making an astonishing dash. The fans are chanting his name. You can hear it reverberate around the stadium. Now a manic sprint up the middle and into the box. Oh! He's thrown open the door! He's thrown open the door, shot the ball through, and slammed the door shut on Mr. Tumnus! Frick has taken the lead 80 minutes into the match, 2 to 1. There'll be no Turkish Delight after the match for the keeper! Sulzbach mounted an inspired counter-attack down the right wing after 83 minutes, but H. Dobler was unable to convert from short range. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Frick would have 57 percent possession in this half was spot on!

The most outstanding Frick player was without a doubt M. Kolářík. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by J. Enache today. H. Dobler performed admirably for Sulzbach. I can't remember R. Benea ever having a worse night than he just had. The match ends 2 - 1.
