It had rained all day, but 470 hardy fans still made it out to Rufijii Arena. Rui Silva was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and Luis Saravia. Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Poppotami will go to battle in a 4-3-3 formation. They fielded: Pellicciotta - Deneken, Rubini, Jarmoc, Bonilla - Marani, Lanzetti, Tanno - Gozza, Hatif, Nonbo.

After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, archimede decided to go with a 3-5-2 formation. Starters: Rodríguez - Skhulukhia, Bozzolo, Ribet - Ferguson, Barnier, Curelea, Höllerer, Mojardo - Montani, Pizarro.

C. Ribet had a difficult time moving the ball with his trademark elegance; the muddy surface was clearly affecting his technique. The crowd gasped as B. Skhulukhia of archimede was flattened by an opponent after 4 minutes and had to be helped off the field. S. Talbot hopped from the bench to replace him. 0 - 1 was the score after 17 minutes, when archimede's L. Bozzolo cut through the central defense and pounded one in. After 28 minutes of play, B. Marani evened things up for Poppotami with an impressive goal coming up the middle. 1 - 1. L. Bozzolo did not have a good day today, often losing his footing on the muddy field. The bleachers were silenced after 33 minutes when archimede's B. Ferguson put the guests ahead 1 - 2, following an attack on the right. M. Tanno pulled a rabbit out of his hat as he wove through the guest's entire central defense and put the 2 - 2 equalizer away after 35 minutes. It was 2 - 2 at the break. archimede did a good job holding on to the ball, with 51 percent of possession.

52 minutes into the game, G. Montani put the finishing touch on a counter-attack down the left wing by archimede. 2 - 3. Poppotami's A. Nonbo was shown a yellow card after 61 minutes for slicing down an opponent. Due to a severely mistimed tackle, R. Höllerer of archimede spent some time on the grass writhing in agony before he could get up and continue the game. archimede came close to extending their lead as L. Bozzolo delivered a low effort on goal from the right but the angle was too sharp, and the shot was destined for the side netting. The referee showed archimede's G. Montani the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. That was no dive! Poppotami's N. Gozza looked to be in real pain after being caught by a stray leg. The fans held their breath, but in the end he managed to get up and keep playing. The home crowd was not impressed when D. Barnier came in from the right, shooting hard to score after 89 minutes. archimede were now up 2 - 4. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that archimede had 53...53 percent possession. AH AH AH!

The most outstanding Poppotami player was without a doubt A. Nonbo. Good thing J. Deneken isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. Most important archimede player was G. Montani. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because D. Barnier seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The match ends 2 - 4.
