FCJA 2 - 0 CHE Acad

148 people stood around the field of Sardarabad2 today, chatting about the horrible weather. The pitch was a disaster, due to all the rain. This spelled problems for the more sophisticated players, who usually could rely on speed or technique. For those relying on grit and strength, it actually meant an edge. The lucky starting players: Pezeshkian - Chalbi, Mansouri, Jirandeh, Ganjkhanlou - Choupan, Soltanieh, Chenari, Abadi - Nikkhou, Dehghani.

The picks for today were: Bojchevski - Pirganovski, Crvenkov, Mitrevski - Kezaroski, Perçem, Perišić, Mandilov, Gichevski - Thika, Oncheski.

FCJ Ararat trundled out to the pitch in a 4-4-2 formation. The visitors, Chelsea-Academy, chose to start the game with a 3-5-2 lineup. CHE Acad nearly took the initiative in the game at this point, but Mahan Pezeshkian anticipated Dragan Oncheski's half-volley well enough to tip it away. Mahan Pezeshkian didn't know much about that one, although his face certainly did. The important thing is that he kept his home side in the game after Ðorđe Perišić squirmed through the right defense 23 minutes in. With 26 minutes played, Elson Thika looked all grown up as he hit a powerful shot at goal from the middle of the D, missing it by an inch. A great pass from the defensive line of FCJA resulted in a counter-attack that was smoothly brought under control by Jalal Soltanieh in the center of the penalty area, but his finish went high. The FCJA coach looked skeptical as Najib Dehghani made his way down the left side all by himself. However, the talented young man avoided all challenges and pushed in the go-ahead goal for 1 - 0! It was 1 - 0 at the break. CHE Acad, bringing their ball possession to 60 percent, seemed most ambitious today.

Nasrollah Ganjkhanlou produced a fine header after that corner kick with 76 minutes on the clock. The ball was blocked by the goalie but was quickly snapped up by Mehdi Chenari who scored the 2 - 0 goal for FCJA. Antonio Mitrevski had a couple of good opportunities to reply, but the home team's goalkeeper Mahan Pezeshkian just wouldn't surrender. FCJA's opponents had heard about Navid Nikkhou winning his school's 100m dash, so they kept an eye on him. It didn't seem to help though - he breezed past the defense after 85 minutes, and his attempt on goal was only stopped from going in by a reflex stop from the keeper! The match ends with a 2 - 0 scoreline. CHE Acad pleased their coach greatly, as they maintained 60 percent of possession.

Najib Dehghani performed especially well for FCJA - he could be a candidate for the senior squad one day. Mahan Pezeshkian needs a lot of extra training, however. The coach of CHE Acad was especially pleased with Ðorđe Perišić after the game. On the other hand, the level of play may have been too high for Boshko Pirganovski.
