Leijonat 5 - 2 PPP

Clear skies welcomed the 56454 spectators who had made their way to Leijonien Luola. David Mårtensson was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Guido Rhodehefer and Massimiliano Lenci. Our studio analysts were correct. Leijonat has taken the field in a 3-5-2 alignment. The following players took the field: Miskolczi - Corujo, Friargiu, Vilk - Dalli, Granlund, Nohl, Turtonen, Recão - Olivier, Pyrhönen.

After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, PPP decided to go with a 3-5-2 formation. The following players had been selected: Wellens - Kaijansinkko, Plosts, Candia - Blok, Nokkonen, Puukka, Huuhka, Yiannakoglou - Pogrebnyak, Kinnunen.

With 19 minutes played, Leijonat's T. Recão pulled up limping after a savage, cowardly challenge. But he's not yet ready to shuffle off this mortal coil. He's staying in to play on. The valiant never taste of death but once! The head of T. Kinnunen connected with a beautiful corner kick after 28 minutes. He wasn't shooting, though, but rather passing to M. Nokkonen of PPP who buried the shot for 0 - 1. With 31 minutes played, Leijonat's S. Olivier made a rush down the left, leaving him free to put the 1 - 1 equalizer away. After a fine move down the middle V. Granlund nearly put the home side one up with 35 minutes played. His final touch escaped him though and the keeper smothered the ball. The game had been going for 38 minutes when J. Nohl came in on the right, feinted, then sped past the off-balance defender to put away the 2 - 1 goal, giving Leijonat the lead. 39 minutes had passed when Leijonat put themselves up 3 - 1 after the visiting defenders lost the ball to T. Pyrhönen, who came up from the left and proceeded to easily go around the goalkeeper and knock the ball home. It was 3 - 1 at the break. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Leijonat had 54...54 percent possession. AH AH AH!

A magnificent combination in the middle resulted in Leijonat's G. Vilk bringing the lead up to 4 - 1. Given a free kick from an impossible angle, Leijonat went for a play that loyal fans may recognize from training. A square ball surprised the defense and let G. Vilk slip through at goal. He hit it first time, making the score 5 - 1, 54 minutes into the game. PPP's coach was furious with T. Kinnunen after he picked up a yellow for saying one too many words to the ref. The visitors replied 78 minutes into the game, reducing the lead to 5 - 2, as T. Kinnunen dashed up the middle and chipped the ball over the home team's keeper. After 82 minutes, a couple of quick and successful challenges followed by a shot from just outside the penalty area by T. Recão might have resulted in another goal for Leijonat. However, W. Wellens made a spectacular save. Leijonat did a good job holding on to the ball, with 54 percent of possession.

The most outstanding Leijonat player was without a doubt S. Olivier. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because T. Recão seemed to stumble all over the pitch. T. Kinnunen performed admirably for PPP. Speaking of stinking up the place, O. Kaijansinkko sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. The match ends 5 - 2.
