The match almost didn't happen, as one of the teams did not arrive in time for kick off. A lacrosse team practicing nearby agreed to step up and play instead. The grateful -S.K.- coach invited them all to get pizza afterwards. Dark skies made several of the 208 spectators at Hic sunt dracones contemplate an early return journey, but the rain held off. The picks for today were: Bellè - Spina, Labella, Di Lillo, Tronconi - Schirone, Gandolfi, Riccato, Galante - Sabbioni, Siena.

Starters: Panevski - Jadrovski, Tanasovski - Xhelilaj, Hadzievski, Kacarski, Dzorlev, Kiprijanoski - Toshevski, Lukarovski, Vrencovski.

Virtus Giovane Carano fielded a 4-4-2 lineup. For ...:: STEFAN ::..., the formation of choice was a 2-5-3. -S.K.-'s Janko Kacarski came in from the right after chasing a through ball 3 minutes in, but the ball was too far away from his body and Corrado Bellè managed to snap it up. -S.K.- appeared uncertain how to play and their organization was only solid. Having taken a hard knock between his legs, Osvaldo Labella limped off the pitch in a reduced state of dignity. He could not continue, managing only 14 minutes for his team this day. The player that took his place was Massimiliano Zatelli. Jordan Dzorlev nearly put the visiting team one up after 15 minutes, following an optimistic solo raid down the middle, but Corrado Bellè stretched far enough to tip the ball to a corner. -S.K.-'s Janko Kacarski put the guests ahead 0 - 1, following an attack on the right 20 minutes into the game. Tashko Jadrovski's father will be glad he made the drive today, as 29 minutes into the game, -S.K.- were awarded a penalty and the young talent was able to increase the visitors' lead to 0 - 2 with a firm, uncomplicated kick. Did someone forget the pre-match briefing today? The -S.K.- boys didn't seem to have a clue what to do, and their organization level dropped to passable. With 38 minutes played, a mistake by the home side's left defense allowed Kuzman Toshevski to get through. He made the home side's keeper look like the rookie he is, and added another goal for the visitors. 0 - 3. The referee confirmed the score as 0 - 3 when he blew his whistle for halftime. This half the -S.K.- boys hung on to the ball, with 64 percent possession.

When the referee signaled for the half to end, the boys of -S.K.- were eager to get some feedback from their coach. His tactical review helped raise the team's organization to solid. -S.K.- did not seem very confident about what to do on the field, the organization level having broken down to passable. Stefan Lukarovski could have made a name for himself when he, after 71 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 Corrado Bellè collected it. A weird looking volley from Massimiliano Zatelli nearly went in, but Ugo Siena could not get the rebound under control and the ball was instead cleared by a defender. Nicola Sabbioni worked hard for that opportunity, but he had veered too far left and when the shot finally came the angle was too demanding - it was easily caught by the goalkeeper. The home players' parents couldn't believe their eyes as Maksim Hadzievski came in from the right, shooting hard to score 78 minutes into the game. -S.K.- were even happier about their lead now, which was up to 0 - 4. That's all, folks! The match ends 0 - 4. In this half -S.K.- were the most energetic, keeping the ball to themselves for 63 percent of the time.

The Giovani Draghi players gave Florindo Galante a group hug after the game, claiming he'd been "really great". Ugo Siena left the field with tears in his eyes, knowing he had been the worst player on his team. The coach of -S.K.- was especially pleased with Maksim Hadzievski after the game. Robert Panevski showed he still has a lot to learn.
