ZBRKL 1 - 6 O boys

The skies were cloudy, but it wasn't raining. The 149 spectators at EAST SIDE 1 today seemed reasonably pleased, at least with the weather. The coach fielded the following talents: Vasović - Viişoreanu, Dačić, Živadinović, Vukojević - Janjušević, Čaušević, Stefanović, Zubić - Belojica, Aćimović.

The boys who got to play today were: Nikiforovski - Konevski, Ukëmema - Çulaj, Deren, Oka, Demollari, Kartal - Bejkovski, Frchkovski, Nichev.

It was to be a contest between two different football philosophies, since the home team started the game with a 4-4-2 formation while the visitors instead opted for a 2-5-3. The O boys boys clearly preferred using their ability to attack in the middle. The referee noted down 0 - 1 as the new score after 9 minutes. O boys's Melit Çulaj had cut through the central defense and chipped home a goal, right over the keeper. The brave little soldiers of ZBRKL earned a perfect opportunity to level the score, having battled their way around the right side of the defensive line. Pavle Zubić was the last to touch the ball, netting the 1 - 1 goal. After 23 minutes, O boys's Siljan Konevski made his way through the middle and cheekily placed the ball out of the keeper's reach, putting the visitors up 1 - 2. O boys were determined to attack in the middle - even their wing attacks ended up centrally. O boys's Simeon Frchkovski was at the end of a play slashing through the home side's central defense 31 minutes in, and after a single touch, he chipped it over the keeper to score the 1 - 3 goal. The loyal few at the sidelines were not pleased with that one. At the halftime break, the score was 1 - 3. O boys didn't seem to want to give the ball away in this half, resulting in 69 percent of possession.

After 46 minutes, the visitors put themselves ahead 1 - 4 as Melit Çulaj redirected a misplaced long shot from the left into the goal. I don't think he knew much about that one! Zlatko Bejkovski could have made a name for himself when he, after 48 minutes, almost extended the visitors' lead with a well-placed Van Persie-like diving header after the ball looped into the middle, but the home side's keeper Lazar Vasović collected it. 60 minutes into the match, a well-timed pass from the left side gave Simeon Frchkovski of O boys an open road to the goal. Seconds later the score was 1 - 5. After 61 minutes, Kiril Nichev strained his groin quite severely and had to be helped off the field by the physio. Pavle Ðorović had already been warming up, and came on for Kiril Nichev. A drive on the left side created space for O boys's Siljan Konevski, who easily put the cross away after 62 minutes for 1 - 6. Central attacks were the recipe of the day for O boys, and they were successfully passing the ball from the wing into the middle. That's all, folks! The match ends 1 - 6. This half the O boys boys hung on to the ball, with 69 percent possession.

The coach of ZBRKL was especially pleased with Haris Čaušević after the game. On the other hand, the level of play may have been too high for Veselin Dačić. O boys's Zlatko Bejkovski had a great game and was congratulated by his teammates. This boy could be going places! Varid Demollari needs a lot of extra training, however.
