Balsa UTD 2 - 2 Void

Dark skies made the crowd of 13846 at Estádio 6 de Agosto a little nervous, but the rain held off. Ib Baggesen was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and . The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and Balsa UTD formed up in a 3-5-2 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. The following players took the field: Tzemach - Lima Filho, Liedquist, Malling - Sierra Galán, Plaza, Rozhkov, Moitinho, Romero Florindo - Autenrieth, Nepomuceno.

Gentlemen prefer blondes and Void prefers a 4-4-2. Let's see how this plays out for them. Starters: Capixaba - Gomes Cunha, d'Oliveira, Freire Lins, Marconato - Sanchez, Pupi, de Fátima, Amorim - Pinho, Ferraz.

8 minutes had elapsed when a great chance for Balsa UTD to take the lead after a good ball from the right found M. Moitinho alone with the keeper, but he chipped it to the wrong side of the post. S. Sierra Galán of Balsa UTD received a yellow card after 9 minutes for unsportsmanlike behavior. 0 - 1 was the score after 14 minutes, when Void's L. Pinho cut through the central defense and pounded one in. J. Plaza showed his inexperience when he failed to anticipate the bounce of a high ball, allowing Void's C. Pupi to take advantage and place a shot into the bottom corner of the goal. 0 - 2. After this, you could see that Void's players were mostly interested in killing time and holding on to their lead. Halftime score was 0 - 2. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Balsa UTD had 57...57 percent possession. AH AH AH!

The home crowd did not lose faith and cheered their team on as they strove to get back into the game. The fans were rewarded after 60 minutes when Y. Rozhkov burst forward, 5-holed the central defender and then mischievously lobbed the ball over the advancing goalie to make the score 1 - 2. Definitely a SportsCenter Top 10 candidate – DA-DA-DA! DA-DA-DA! Just a few inches to the right, and the visitors could have had a goal in minute 69. M. Gomes Cunha was overheard by some in the stands blaming either Grebulon or sunspots, depending on their individual loyalties. With 70 minutes played, F. Lima Filho knocked one home from a counter-attack down the right wing, making the score 2 - 2. With 73 minutes played, W. Autenrieth came in from the right with the intention of giving Balsa UTD the lead, but his rocket of a shot could only rattle the crossbar. Slack defending gave Balsa UTD a chance to take the lead with 75 minutes played, but J. Plaza's cross from the left flank was met gratefully by the opposition who cleared it to safety. Balsa UTD made a bid to take the lead as a ball coming in on the right hand side left W. Autenrieth completely alone with keeper N. Capixaba, who made a spectacular block. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Balsa UTD, with an impressive 57 percent possession of the ball.

The most outstanding Balsa UTD player was without a doubt H. Malling. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by J. Romero Florindo today. L. Pinho performed admirably for Void. Speaking of stinking up the place, G. d'Oliveira sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. The match ends 2 - 2.
